Co-hosted by Daniel Gomez-Seidel and Pablo Criado-Peréz.
What have been the most important decisions you have made so far in your life? What was it that in the end nudged you towards one direction or the other? And how will you find a compromise between trusting your guts and trusting the other, in an age of biometric scanning, smart machines, and predictive analytics? Are we witnessing an evolution of decision-making?
With technological and scientific progress, we’re not only exposed to increasing data-driven knowledge, but also gain more insight into the unexplored mysteries of human decision-making. Today, tensions arise between the intuitive, and the analytical, the individual and the collective, the manipulative and the altruistic. How do these tensions affect business, culture and everyday life?
What essential aspects of our own humanity might be crucial factors to count in, when making the right choice – and how many will be real free will?
Together with speakers from science, business, politics, technology, and the arts, we explored the evolving nature of decision-making and start deconstructing, by experiencing.
