Alex Pentland, one of the most influential Data Scientists in the world, sees the realization of a new world, a world in which data is the new oil and AI the only machine able to refine it.
Starting from the key themes present in his forthcoming book "Building a new Economy", Pentland will outline the features of this new ecosystem of data and algorithms to which everyone, from States, to companies, to people, need to adapt quickly in order not to fall behind.
Some are already preparing for this new world and, starting from their example, Pentland, will help us to identify how to get ready for this "New Economy".
He will discuss the following topics:
- data as capital: sources, security, regulation and ethics
- new ways to use data and AI in business
- new platforms and ecosystems
- the forerunners of the new data economy.
