PANEL DISCUSSION: How Are Data and Algorithms Shaping Our Lives
HPI New York, 10 Hudson Yards, NYC
March 26, 6.00 – 9.00 PM
We live in an age of big data. Everything we do leaves behind a digital trace, which creates tremendous potential for transforming systems, policies, research, and society at large. Is this plethora of information being used for the greater good?
- Who defines what the greater good is?
- How much should we resist these outside forces (e.g., sleeping apps, fitness apps, social networks) shaping our everyday lives?
Companies that have access to our data (e.g., Google, Apple, and Facebook) are relieving us of the burden of investigating the basis for making thoughtful decisions. But is this good for individuals or for society?
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Felix Naumann, Professor for Information Systems, Hasso Plattner Institute
