Euphoria Convenience is big data and predictive analytics perfectly attuned: it means satisfying goods and services arriving even before consumers sense that they want them. Already we see slivers of it on Netflix when the next, curated video begins even before the previous one ends. We experience it on Amazon when suggestions occasionally fulfil an urge we didn’t know we had.
The key to perfected entertainment and service is our personal information, and the underlying human dilemma is about how much of ourselves we should expose to get what we want. In this webinar, real world cases and philosophical thought experiments will help us investigate by exploring questions including: What is privacy? Why is Kim Kardashian the most private person in the world? Is it more satisfying to want and then get, or to get before wanting? Answers are elusive, but the goal is to identify and clarify the ethical dilemmas arising when personal information is gathered and leveraged in the media, entertainment, marketing and retail sectors. This webinar is tailored for professionals in data governance, but open to all those interested in the regulatory and human dilemmas inhabiting privacy and AI powered convenience.
