 The world has changed. And if you’re not reevaluating your approach to data, you could fall behind. In this keynote talk show, we’ll look at the new data imperatives from several angles – including key data trends, how COVID has accelerated digital shifts, new ways data is driving value and how businesses are already achieving faster ROI. We’ll also introduce Active Intelligence, a critical strategy for competing in the new normal – and explain how to achieve it using Qlik.

11:45 AM 12:15 PM 30 Min. Keynote: How to be Human in the Age of the Machine  » Dr Hannah Fry
Associate Professor in the Mathematics, Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis at UCL. Author and Broadcaster.

 We like to think of ourselves as master decision makers; as perfectly rational creatures, grounded in reason and logic. It’s a nice idea, but the reality is rather different. In truth, humans are a mess. There's a lot going on with us: competing incentives, dodgy memories and blind, impulsive biases.

The modern era of data analytics is, in some sense, an attempt to automate our decision making, iron out some of the fallibilities and biases built in to our choices. But decisions driven by data have blind spots too. And all this leaves us to a conundrum:  humans are flawed, machines are flawed. So who do we want to leave in charge of our decision making?  And how should we think about the interface between the two to bring about the best possible partnership between human and machine?
