‘The Data Economy – How to Succeed in a World of Data and AI’

The Amsterdam Business School is honoured to invite Professor Viktor Mayer-Schönberger to speak about what companies will need to do in order to succeed in the new data economy. His lecture will take place on Friday 25 May.

Due to an abundance of data and the availability of data-driven machine learning systems, we are entering the world of the data economy, an economy in which data is replacing money as the main driver of market behavior. In this economy markets will soar, conventional firms will struggle and traditional financial institutions will face unlikely competition by small groups and individual actors. The future will be driven by data, but run by digital superstars. Avoiding this oligopolistic dystopia will require bold measures.
