The subject of his speech...

Big Data and Machine Learning End of Innocence?

We have gotten into the age of Big Data and Data Analytics for good. Large multinational companies (such as Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple, etc.) hold a large amount of data from their users through their products, as well as massive groups dealing with Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning, being always at the cutting edge of technology. Companies claim that the new products / capabilities they offer through these technologies serve the satisfaction of their users. But is this really true? Is everything as innocent as it looks? Are we no longer the owners of our data, but maybe their "victims"?
