Big Data analysis and psychological profiling are used by Cambridge Analytica to help advertisers craft their messages to appeal to specific personality types with the aim of changing their behaviour. These days, advertisement or political messages can be created and personalised for any audience and have a guaranteed effect.

At IT Arena, Alexander will take the stage with his speech “From Mad Men to Math Men”. He will discuss how combining behavioural science, big data analytics and targeting is enabling organisations to truly engage with their consumers in new ways, leading to behavioural change. This session will inform you on how certain technologies such as data modelling and psychographic profiling can help companies build a more personal relationship with their customers and Alexander will demonstrate how data and creative are inseparably dependent on each other.
