Is the future predictable? Stefanie Lindstaedt will take part in a discussion about the potency of data – live on Tuesday, September 22, 2015, 7:30 pm at the RadioKulturhaus Vienna.

Nowadays, our thoughts and actions are determined by probabilities, which are again based on data.
From government spending down to individual consumer behaviour: information is being evaluated and analyzed with the help of computer-generated search machines and thus being used as predictions. How is this changing our society?
