Discussions and Workshops

The agenda for Stream 2016 is in your hands. There are six session times a day, hosted in nine different meeting spaces. Each session runs for 1 hour (give or take) and all sessions are led by you, the Stream participants. Here's how it works:

  1. Before Stream - Share your idea - Create a New Discussion by clicking on the blue ‘add idea’ button on the left of this page
  2. Before Stream - Invite others to join you - you can see the participants list at the Participants page
  3. At Stream - Book a slot - when you arrive on site, write your discussion on the Big Boards

The Stream Team is on hand to help. Please get in touch if you'd like to talk an idea through before posting, or would like help finding some co-hosts.

All algorithms and no play makes Jack a dull boy

What happens in a world where everything we see and experience is predetermined by an algorithm? We know that well-executed audience targeting drives campaign results and makes advertising more welcome to consumers, but have we gone too far? The same is true for targeted product and content recommendations. We welcome algorithmic suggestions to aid our online shopping and browsing choices, but are we moving to a hyper-optimised future where ‘non-relevant’ information is automatically filtered out and therefore limits our perspective on the wider world?
