SPOS #651 – Predictive Analytics With Katie Robbert

1 Comment

Welcome to episode #651 of Six Pixels of Separation

Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation – Episode #651 – Host: Mitch Joel. Two of my close friends from the marketing world are Christopher S. Penn and John Wall. Some know them as the dynamic duo that host the Marketing Over Coffee Podcast (and it’s a glorious one). We’ve been friends for close to 15 years (from the early days of podcasting at the first-ever PodCamp). What some may not know, is that the two of them plus Katie Robbert have a great company called, Trust Insights. The company’s big goal is to help brands light up their dark data. They live to build both predictive insights and push analytics to create better outcomes. Katie and I met at HubSpot’s massive Inbound conference this past year, where she presented on the topic of predictive analytics. This is the kind of rich brand goodness that is no longer relegated to big companies with massive budgets. Enjoy the conversation…

When technology can read minds, how will we protect our privacy? | Nita Farahany

1 Comment
From: tedtalksdirector
Duration: 13:05

Tech that can decode your brain activity and reveal what you're thinking and feeling is on the horizon, says legal scholar and ethicist Nita Farahany. What will it mean for our already violated sense of privacy? In a cautionary talk, Farahany warns of a society where people are arrested for merely thinking about committing a crime (like in "Minority Report") and private interests sell our brain data -- and makes the case for a right to cognitive liberty that protects our freedom of thought and self-determination.

What to trust in a "post-truth" world | Alex Edmans

1 Comment
From: tedtalksdirector
Duration: 17:48

Only if you are truly open to the possibility of being wrong can you ever learn, says researcher Alex Edmans. In an insightful talk, he explores how confirmation bias -- the tendency to only accept information that supports your personal beliefs -- can lead you astray on social media, in politics and beyond, and offers three practical tools for finding evidence you can actually trust. (Hint: appoint someone to be the devil's advocate in your life.)
