A growth in the number of new APIs being created to act as quantified self data tools could lead to a new wave of personal health applications. Data streamed via quantified self APIs could also potentially create new empirical datasets to support emerging sciences. The Moves API, Pokelog API and a forthcoming Human API all point to greater interest in pulling personal data into new applications.
