The presentation, based on a paper written by M. Leiser, K. La Fors, B. Custers, E. Keymolen, started from an overview of how psychometric and targeted advertising work and how they exploit our personal data.

During the presentation, La Fors highlighted the main problems with solutions so far identified in the field of psychometric testing and targeted advertising, as well as stressed the importance of a combination of legal, technological and ethical responses.
