The data challenge. Fundamental questions

Not long ago, people saw the Internet as changing how we communicate, learn, and shop. Now, we realise the real revolution is in the data spun off by our online travels. Thanks to our digital footprints and machine-to-machine communications, we have an ultra-HD view of patterned human interaction.

For researchers, this is giving us a view of economy and society far more detailed than any previously imagined. This holds the promise of fundamental breakthroughs in our ability to explain and anticipate opportunity and risk across all the major topics in studies of markets, organisations, and social interactions.
