Episode 13: The Value of our Data

Prof. Dr. Naumann

Every day, consciously or unconsciously, we leave a lot of data on the net. How large corporations use this data and how much money our personal data are worth, explains HPI Professor Felix Naumann.

How important it is to separate professional and private affairs strictly on the net, explains HPI professor Felix Naumann in the new podcast episode. He also clarifies how corporations can automatically analyze the data of individual users, quantifies the value of this data and describes which monitoring methods are already tested in theory with our data.

Episode 12: Digital Education

Prof. Dr. Meinel

Knowledge is growing in times of digitalization and confronts us with the question of where and how we will learn in the future. Lifelong learning is becoming indispensable - what role universities will play in this, and why people prefer to learn in digitally in teams, explains HPI Professor Christoph Meinel.
