Information is pretty outdated! Would like to new the current research and the newer studies that have been done on this

This video and talk are from 2013 and 2014 and A LOT has changed between now and then. Most of this data is now antiquated and there's been a rapid change in technology. I was really excited to learn about how trackers of today can be used to help clients, but I was bummed when I found all the research cited is from 6+ years ago. There's so much more we could have learned with all the development in this space.

Extremely outdated. To much time devoted to questions.
