In his talk Thomas Nørmark introduces us into the secret mechanisms of future predictions. This has nothing to do with fortune telling but patterns in big data. He illustrates how big data allows us to look into the future and even predict our individual future lives. He shows why you should see this inevitable development as an opportunity rather than a threat.

Thomas Nørmark is the head of innovation at Intelligence Nordic. With his team he works on solutions using predictive analysis. He developed a “time machine” consisting of systems and solutions for predicting the future using social media data, object recognition and predictive analysis algorithms. One of his recent programs is to predict the movement of fish along Australia's coast. He holds a Master's degree in Computer Science from Aarhus University and gained extensive experience as SAP software consultant. When he was only nine years old, Thomas ran eight marathons and won bronze medal at The National Chess Championship.
