About the Talk

New York Times bestselling author, Professor Viktor Mayer-Schönberger, presents his new book “Reinventing Capitalism in the Age of Big Data”, a prediction for how data will revolutionize the market economy and make cash, banks, and big companies obsolete.

About the Book

In modern history, the story of capitalism has been a story of firms and financiers. That’s all going to change thanks to the Big Data revolution. As Viktor Mayer-Schonberger, bestselling author of Big Data, and Thomas Ramge, who writes for The Economist, show, data is replacing money as the driver of market behavior. Big finance and big companies will be replaced by small groups and individual actors who make markets instead of making things: think Uber instead of Ford, or Airbnb instead of Hyatt. This is the dawn of the era of data capitalism. Will it be an age of prosperity or of calamity? This book provides the indispensable roadmap for securing a better future.
