How much do companies know about you? Your habits, tastes and deepest desires constantly monitored by every single device in your house. Knowledge is Profit looks to explain the links between past present and future of corporate espionage and how companies have been striving to mine our data in order to predict our behaviour. How much of it is a marketing strategy? How far can they go? Is privacy gone for good? With the race for control over artificial intelligence, and the world in a sensitive state, companies now have the chance to keep a track on our every move, and turn George Orwell’s Big Brother vision into reality. In the not-so-distant future where society is cashless and technology is smart, microchips are the new ultimate espionage weapon that will allow full control of our lives to powerful corporations.
