What you'll learn

  • Learn why why we desperately need a personal Discovery Hub: a go-to place for knowledge about ourselves


No matter if you encounter the world as an individual or as a company, a lot of data is collected about your actions, how other people interact with you, and how the world of algorithms that assesses your actions sees you, as well as what your own data reveals. But what do companies actually know about us? And how do we collect that knowledge, get ahold of our own data, and maybe even correct faulty perceptions by putting the right answers out there as a service?

On a personal note, can I get better search results by telling Google who I am? Will my Netflix recommendations get better? Can I actually gather my data somewhere? How does this all come together to support the next generation of data-driven applications and data as a service?

Majken Sander explains why we desperately need a personal Discovery Hub: a go-to place for knowledge about ourselves.
