From Dr. Isaac Asimov’s books to modern Machine Learning methods, this talk explores how information has shaped our society. Our ability to predict the future has evolved dramatically over the years: from the fundamental laws of science – that enabled us to predict motion and forces – to the utopian Psychohistory of Asimov – where everything would be completely predictable at all times – we are now situated in the Machine Learning middle ground, in which algorithms can predict things further than ever before. Information availability was the big catalyser of such change, and in this scenario, how should we behave towards data collection, privacy and sharing? Can you be an important data point in an algorithm that will one day predict someone’s disease?
