Here is an overview of the session:

Digital data at play: How Media Practitioners Use Big Data Creatively to Build Affinity and Relevance Online

Data intelligence in marketing communications has become a key controversial issue. In 2018, a whistleblower revealed that critical data used to inform the Trump campaign strategy was acquired from unethical data acquisition tactics. Industry professionals are facing increasing regulations and restrictions for how data is collected and used. This seminar is designed to provide an overview of leading innovative digital strategies that use big data ethically as a basis for strategic communication choices online. Participants will examine the interplay of ethics and data in the field of marketing to identify ethical gray areas, black-hat marketing techniques and ways to operate with data integrity. In the session, participants will experience live media creation and distribution. The outcome of the session is for attendees to have an applied knowledge and appreciation for the interactive media process.
