Those little BuzzFeed-style quizzes are so addictive (who doesn’t want to know more about their personality?), but unfortunately aren’t really helping any of us get further in life.

The Language of Feelings

In this inspiring talk, Alex the CEO and founder of VisualDNA, shows how today’s internet is powered by naivety.  People don’t understand the value of what they give away for free, i.e. their data.   Alex paints a picture of the foreseeable future where the ‘Internet of Feelings’ transforms our interactions between each other and suggests that from it all will develop a far better connectivity and understanding between people, and a better value exchange between services and their users.

Alex and his team of 150 people based in London, have pioneered a movement to combine big data and psychology to deliver better understanding across the digital ecosystem including unlocking credit to tens of millions of people.
