Anton Musgrave Data vs Politics...whither the State?

Can algorithmic regulation ever replace or seriously challenge the role and relevance of Government inspired and managed regulation? Its a strange but interesting possibility.

Doug Vining Data vs Politics...whither the State?

Not only does the rise of the Internet of Things and Naked Data pose problems for the state, and its relevance in the future, but also for businesses and individuals. This article in the Washington Examiner highlights the dangers of a cyber-dependent world. What would a concerted cyber attack on the power grid do to everyone?

"Our cyber systems are inherently vulnerable," Internet Security Alliance President Larry Clinton said. "They were designed to be open, not secure. The attack community is becoming much more sophisticated. Attack methods available only to nation-states a few years ago are now available to common criminals. In addition, the explosion of mobile devices and the 'Internet of Things' has vastly expanded the surface available to attack."

Neil Jacobsohn What price online privacy?

This is one of the great debates of our time - to what extent should online privacy be ensured? Is it reasonable that government agencies scour the net for signs of illegal activities? Or - as has already been demonstrated in various leaks - does this constitute an unconstitutional invasion of individual privacy?
This article from Aeon Magazine provides good insights into the ongoing discussions. And see our 2014 MindBullet on the same issue, alongside.

Anton Musgrave Will big data deliver on its promise or are we being seduced?

How well will big data deliver on its promised dream of the ultimate customer intimacy and alignment? Big business has failed us so many times...can it do it well this time? I guess the answer lies somewhere close to the authenticity and commitment to an organisation's massively transformative purpose and whether this overrides short term greed and the tendency to be driven by short term market demands rather than long term alignment with customers best interests.
