Your attributes, preferences, and behaviors online have fueled the rise of a multitrillion-dollar industry that has changed the way business fundamentally works. The online and offline worlds are merging, with your identity viewed as a valuable asset at the center – and we are only at the start of knowing what sort of profound changes that will lead to. The social network, data broker, and the way we exchange information are all about to undergo massive changes.
In this Expert Connect webinar, Tarun Wadhwa, founder of Day One Insights, a strategy and advisory firm, will discuss the future of the personal data collection, storage, and analysis industry. He will present a critical analysis of the concept of data ownership, explore what sorts of tools and institutions we need to move this field forward, and discuss the alternative futures that lie ahead if we can manage to advance our architecture and means of proving our identities. Tarun is a guest lecturer at Carnegie Mellon University and is working on a new book, Identified: The Digital Transformation of Who We Are, which explores the global rise of digital identification systems, to be released this year.
