Much has been said about the rise of Artificial Intelligence and how this breakthrough technology could potentially change humanity forever.
The raw material that algorithms need to produce insights or more importantly, make decisions is data, and not just data gathered by clicks, likes or our web browser´s history, but also biometric data captured from health trackers like Fitbit or Apple Watch, amongst others.
Nowadays, companies can gather so much data about us, it’s starting to feel that some of them know us better than we know ourselves, and this is just the beginning!
