The system the information society runs on is a black box. We know almost nothing about what goes on inside it. Yet we continuously feed it personal data at one end in exchange for suggestions about what we might want or need coming out the other. The black box constantly gathers personal data via sensors in our “smart” devices and connects us with others using the data it harvests. As its algorithms silently exchange information about us, the feeling is creeping up that the mysterious black box is beginning to know us better than we know ourselves.

Programme details to be confirmed.
