Big data, data analytics, personal data, open data, linked data,
metadata, data journalism, data science, data infrastructures….and still
you can add a new “data” phrase!
Data has become a buzzword used in a number of disciplines, by technical
and business communities. At the same time, the growing interaction
among corporate, governmental and personal information spaces introduces
a novel set of opportunities and challenges for the economy.
The DATA ECONOMY workshop will try to engage scholars and professionals
from multiple disciplines including economics, management, open
governance, data science, computer science and software engineering in
discussions related to how digital data, scattered in decentralised
information systems and applications and being accessible via the Web,
change the economy and the ways we are doing business.
Possible topics for discussion (but not limited to):
● Economic theory and practice related to online data and the Web
