I am grateful to the many of you who purchased my book Big Data and Law, subsequent to my post announcing the book’s publication in English and Mandarin in addition to the original German version.
The response from readers has been overwhelming, underscoring the need for more information about legal, regulatory and other aspects of Big Data, as current events continue to keep this topic in the headlines.
Clearly the topic of Big Data and GDPR is so vast and so dynamic that I’ve decided to continue sharing my expertise through a series of interviews and blogs.
I will speak with experts about Big Data and ask them the burning questions we are all wondering about concerning this provocative topic.
Duet will be a series of monthly blogs where I will be interviewing noted guests on topics related to Big Data as well as GDPR.
I will be asking legal, ethical, technical, geo-political and even philosophical questions surrounding Big Data today to start meaningful discussions about why and how Big Data will impact our present and future lives.
My guests and I will exchange ideas, identify challenges, propose solutions and, in the process, make the subject of Big Data more inspiring to you.
Be informed on these vital issues and follow me on this important journey!

in her Duet interview with DrRieke C. Harmsen, Dr Caldarola,author of Big Data and Law, discusses the current influence of digitisation on journalism and media.
From a Chinese perspective, data is a production factor on par with land, labour and capital. Shanghai’s first data exchange is one of the earliest examples of this new production factor being implemented. It aims at making the collection and sale of data transparent and at enabling companies which collect data to maximize the value and productivity of their business. The goal is to put data in the hands of entrepreneurs who can use it most efficiently – just as Western stock and bond markets allocate savings to the companies that can generate the highest risk-adjusted returns. Since artificial intelligence (AI) is the engine of the fourth industrial revolution, data is its fuel. Will there soon be a data exchange in Europe so that the EU can keep up in the field of AI?
In the latest of her Duet interviews, Dr Caldarola,author of Big Data and Law, and IT-Expert Prof. Dr Dennis-Kenji Kipker talk about the new data commerce in Shanghai’s data exchange.
Despite the fact that digital business models have created an unprecedented amount of shareholder value in the last decade, they are taxed at a surprisingly low level in the countries where they have the most customers. This has become the subject of heated public debate and has led to a number of regulatory initiatives, such as the OECD’s ‘Base Erosion and Profit Shifting’ (BEPS) 2.0 project. What impact will that initiative have on the relationship between digital service providers, consumers and tax authorities? Will the use of blockchain technology bring new opportunities to corporate tax enforcement by using real-time information from shared trusted data sources?
In the latest of her Duet series, Dr Caldarola,author of Big Data and Law, and tax expert, Svetlana Schiel, consider new developments in corporate tax laws as well as related future challenges.
