Users confidence and the proposal of a New Deal on Data

Professor Alex ‘Sandy’ Pentland, MIT and Board advisor to Telefónica Dynamic Insights proposes a New Deal on Data:

“In short, to achieve the exciting possibilities of a data driven society, we require what I have called the New Deal on Data – workable guarantees that the data needed for public goods are readily available while, at the same time, protecting the citizenry. Maintaining protection of personal privacy and freedom is critical to the success of any society.”
