The collection and manipulation of data holds promises and pitfalls for our future. Data makes predictions possible and allows us to look for deeper meaning in the universe, but it is a double edged sword - bad data and biased data wreak untold havoc in our interactions.

These are the stories of the future that big data is bringing to our doorsteps; the extreme adventures in gathering remote data; the real world dangers of predictions; artificial intelligence and sentient machines, and hacks and exploits that expose our darkest secrets to the world.

In each episode, over 4 dark and mysterious stories, experts contribute their hypotheses as the narrator unfolds the elements, telling the story through archive imagery, stock footage, and a data driven approach to motion graphics and CGI.
