🤖 How to use AI with your Apple Health Data to get personal insights

One of the most exciting updates for ChatGPT just dropped - "Advanced Data Analysis"

What is "Advanced Data Analysis"?

Quick answer: ChatGPT with Advanced Data Analysis (ADA) allows you to upload data to then easily and quickly extract advanced insights from this data. Detailed answer: ChatGPT with Advanced Data Analysis is a feature of OpenAI's ChatGPT that enables ChatGPT to understand and execute Python code. This allows it to perform computations, manipulate data, create visualizations, and more, all within the context of the ongoing conversation. You can access this feature by simply clicking the dropdown on ChatGPT Plus accounts where it says GPT-4 and then select the tool (see the screenshot above).

An example of how you can use this tool for insights

I recently became one of those people who regularly check their Apple health data to monitor my daily steps. However, Apple Health isn't great at showing interesting insights or statistics for your health data. All you can really see is this: Daily average steps and average steps by week month and year.

ChatGPT with ADA however can give you far better insights on your health with Apple's health data...

For example:

If you export your Apple health data and then upload these into ChatGPT with DA enabled, along with a simple prompt like below, you can get many more insights...

What happens next:

ChatGPT will unzip the data & start studying the file. Here, you can see how and what data it is looking at to ensure it's making the correct assumptions on your data.

After this process is done ChatGPT will give you insights in text form, then it will give you graphical charts, tables and more. See examples below...

Using just my Apple Health data I got these graphs:

From the graph above you can see I never left the house until I got my dog in Oct 2022.

The graph above shows what times on avg I take the most steps in the day.

The graph above shows how many steps per day I took on average per year.

However, that last graph is a little hard to read as all the lines are similar colors. So, to fix this I asked ChatGPT to change the colors with this prompt...

Within a minute it gave this revised graph:

So, how can you use ChatGPT with Advanced Data Analysis to help with your work? That article is coming soon!

Overall warning: Giving OpenAI access to your health data as I did is not something I recommend if you value your personal health data and its privacy. Consider exploring data encryption, or just take measures to be selective in what data you share.
