If you don’t pay for it, you are the product. Whether we want it or not, our data is our newest currency. In times where we put privacy as such a high priority, our online and digital behaviour would tell you otherwise. It's called the intention behaviour gap. “I’ll give you my data, but I want a personal, custom-made offer in return.” And AI brings new dimensions to the collection of data and the tailer-made expectations: next to opinions and behaviours we can now also track emotions and personality.

What does this all mean for our daily work?

In the extremely difficult knowledge quiz Jeopardy, man is no longer a party to the smart computer. How far are we in 2018 with imitating human intelligence in machines? What is fact and what is fiction? How are smart machines already applied? What are the opportunities and threats?
