GeekSpeak – will Dataism kill Humanism?

We humans are, in this day and age, human-centric.  But there is a time coming when Big Data will be the center of all our actions and decisions.  Algorithms will make all our decisions for us.  They will decide whom we will marry, whom we will vote for.  Algorithms will know so much more about us than we know about ourselves.

When will we realize that we are not completely human any more?  When will ‘human’ mean something different? When will we be ruled by the algorithm?  Will Dataism become a new religion?  When will you be happy to give your life over to Google?

Come and discuss the transition from biological algorithms to electronic ones.  Bring your brain processing unit.

IM Vulcan Viper if you have ideas for new subjects.

Best wishes
