Psychology, AI & Big Data: the Science of Influence

Technical talk | English

Track 1 - Theatre 25

Wednesday - 12.35 to 13.15 - Technical


My talk will show how the combination of advances in psychology, big data and artificial intelligence (AI) will revolutionise decision-making in business, government, military – everywhere. Together, developments in these three fields are changing how we understand ourselves, posing profound questions around our agency and our ethics. Indeed, together they may be so revolutionary as to allow what some in UK Defence are now calling cognitive manoeuvre – a phenomenon not unlike that of Philip K. Dick’s precogs in his book Minority Report – allowing early identification of others’ intent to preempt and influence future behaviour.
