"Modern technology encourages artful choreography over truth”. What are some instances where the digital marketing world exploits data and predictive models to influence behaviours and beliefs? What ethical concerns arise from the convergence of AI, machine learning, and personal data, specifically regarding privacy, control, and abuse for both consumers and humans in general? How do products and brands manipulate emotions to influence us, given your perspective coming from the 'dark side,' and shed light on the tactics used to emotionally manipulate and nudge consumers? How does the illusion of choice impact decision-making, and how do businesses and marketers across various sectors use this manipulation to guide outcomes in their favour?
