What happens with this data? Who benefits from it? Will it make our society more predictable? Science journalist and physicist Ranga Yogeshwar will be talking to physicist Dirk Helbing. He is Professor of Computational Social Science at ETH Zurich and has a special interest in the modelling and simulation of complex socio-economic systems and scenarios. Jazz trumpeter and composer Till Brönner will be adding his own emphasis to the occasion, namely, music as an unpredictable alternative to technology and data.
