An interactive festival with data, tamers and AI

Who has more health data about you – your GP or your smartphone? How many people do you know who could identify you just from your medication list? Does your fitness tracker know more about your health than you do?

The collection of personalized health-related data and its analysis by self-learning artificial intelligence systems is seen by some as an inevitable path to the future. Others fear the big data octopuses that will soon be juggling with algorithms to determine our social status. Everyday analog life seems to be increasingly immersed in virtual worlds.

But fear not: we bring light into the dark, dense jungle of data. We clear the ring for bit jugglers and neurotanzglitter. Join the Pillow Fight Club into the fitness ring, go to Space Junk on an intergalactic mission. Journey back to the future of the year 2078 before you your virtual twin before you meet your virtual twin. Trust yourself and listen to the melody of your life.

Come to Data Wonderland, the data festival of a special kind! Without animal acts but with robots, tamers and predatory capitalists; not artificial, but intelligent.

The event is barrier-free. Admission is free.
