Join the PsychTech community in Berlin for this Disrupt meetup. It aims at bringing together companies, investors, psychologists, government agencies and the general public interested in PsychTech (psychology + technology). We will look at the currently young trend, it’s current and future applications and possible implications.

TOPIC
Is PsychTech (Psychology + Technology) - the Next Big Thing?

SPEAKERS
Here is the current line-up of the upcoming speakers (will be updated over time):

(1) Benjamin Horvath, Character
Benjamin is a pioneer in the PsychTech industry. His app Character uses a sophisticated algorithm to match people seeking new friends. The used algorithms identify people’s core personality traits and can thus predict a range of everyday traits from interests, to habits and hobbies. The power of Cambridge Analytica’s algorithm can be used for positive applications, too, Benjamin says. Because this approach has proven successful in dating and marketing - Benjamin thinks it will soon be applicable to most industries and products.

(2) Adam Janes, F35
After his studies in Economics and Computer Science at Harvard, Adam worked on different projects including a parenting app. His current endeavor is F35, a consulting firm that takes a data-driven approach to building a strong and supportive team culture. In his experience, companies underestimate the importance of personality traits in hiring, management and project assignment. PsychTech in HR is a new trend, that is already used by McKinsey, Bridgewater Associates, and other top-class companies.
