This AI moderated debate explores how technology could help us steer clear from extremism, with the ultimate ambition of driving progress for divided society. Two opposed speakers will debate “Data: the answer or end?”. The debate, which will heat up around data protection, personalisation and ethics, is monitored by an AI, bringing to life the heat of the conversation, calling out any extreme thinking, high emotions and positivity vs negativity and challenging speakers to try and find consensus
