About The Class

It has been said that data is the new oil in the age of AI and machine learning. Indeed, as the 4th Industrial Revolution unfolds, we will generate immense amounts of data, north of 175 Zetabytes a year. Much of that data and the insights we generate from it will be deeply personal to individuals or highly confidential to enterprises.

  • How do we balance the productivity promise, profit potential, and public benefit of those data-driven insights on one side with the need to respect privacy and confidentiality on the other?
  • How will this natural tension evolve in the future?
  • How can we design use cases and business models that allow us to navigate this well and responsibly?
  • What types of governance do we need to put in place to be trustworthy and achieve greater, not less, customer, and stakeholder intimacy?

This and more will be the focus on Prof. Olaf Groth’s talk during our free webinar on July 16th. Join us and help define the next frontier of digital growth ethically, equitably, and with foresight.
