Panel Description

Navigating Big Data Challenges: Access to data, and capabilities to analyze the same, redefine the business moat for corporations and governance opportunities for governments. Data dictates product and policy success. It also raises complex challenges. With ever increasing hacks and vulnerabilities, data security continues to confound us. Data-driven businesses and governments also question core assumptions of privacy and individual reputation. Machine learning and deep learning, facilitated by data crunching algorithms, can either be coded to discriminate or learn from human data sets and imbibe the very same prejudices. This panel will deliberate upon these varied challenges, and explore possible policy frameworks to address them.

The panelists are:

  • Ann Cavoukian
  • Rahul Matthan
  • Vishnu Shankar
  • Rob Sherman
  • Sunil Abraham

Chaired by B.N. Srikrishna, former judge, Supreme Court of India
