Big Data Inverted: best candy is from strangers
In our increasingly digital and technology-driven world, human social relationships are being transformed by data. Your previous online behavior is dictating the news reports, friends’ updates, products and advertisements you receive. With algorithms are determining the content we’re exposed to, people are beginning to unintentionally “barricade” themselves from new experiences and information that don’t fit the pattern of what they’ve already liked and experienced.
In this panel, renowned researchers and digital anthropologists tackle this phenomenon to explore the implications of a “barricaded” society, dissect the current and future obstacles, identify the opportunity for innovation, and provide a call for technology to deliver us to what and who we need, even if it’s unfamiliar.
