Economics of Data Workshop

December 7, 2018 | Location TBD

Friday, December 7th and Saturday, December 8th, 2018

Location TBA

This workshop is devoted to the ways in which data is restructuring existing competitive markets (i.e. by enabling better price discrimination, changing the boundaries of the firm, and creating monopoly power), as well as the design of  ‘data marketplaces.’ It will run over two days. The first day will begin with speakers who will give us a bird’s eye perspective of the role of data. In the second day, leading specialists will focus on particular aspects of the economics of data.

Organized by Annie Liang, Christopher Yoo, Aviv Nevo, Michael Kearns, and Rakesh Vohra.
