The HAT Launch Party, 18 May 2017
Laying out the roadmap for a new digital economy
The magic of the Internet is us. Zuckerberg showed us, when he made us the product at Facebook, and Netflix showed us, when they used the data about what films people liked to create video more valuable than what Hollywood had been creating on their own for years. The Hub of All Things is a technology asking us, "What is the world that we could construct, knowing all of this?" "Where could the value in that world flow?" If the world's most valuable resource today is data, and it is being created at a pace unrivaled by any commodity in any economy of any time, then its creation is the genesis of an entire new economy. On 18 May 2017 Prof. Irene Ng, and today's leaders of the innovation economy compelled their audience to embrace the future of personal data.
