The Big Data Debate – 3:45 pm

Big data has the potential to reveal insights into consumer behavior, improve health outcomes, and our quality of life. There is no question big data, coupled with advanced analytics, can generate value for businesses, consumers and society. But the use of big data also presents big challenges for privacy, including accountability for how the insights gained are ultimately used. This panel is framed as a debate: are privacy laws up to the challenge of big data, yes or no?
