Justin Fox: "What Are the Rules of the Game For the Big Data Revolution?"
"The issue really isn't whether companies or governments should partake of these data riches — of course they should," he writes. "What is an issue is how the data is gathered and used. What are the rules of the game for the big data revolution?" Some feel that this surveillance is an intrusion of privacy. On the other hand, big data collection also serves many beneficial purposes for consumers. In the case of the NSA, Fox lightheartedly adds that big data might also "help catch a terrorist here or there." With better regulation, the The Myth of the Rational Market author says that the pros of big data collection could outweigh that creepiness factor. In his insightful writing and thought-provoking keynotes, Fox finds the pulse of key issue in economics, technology, finance, and international business. His speeches draw unique and useful parallels between these events and our daily lives.
