Can Big Data save the GDP from becom­ing outdated?

Prof. Dr Marc Bertonèche

The dig­i­tal rev­o­lu­tion is accel­er­at­ing auto­mat­ed process­es and will most like­ly damp­en the major­i­ty of the dri­ving forces rais­ing the GDP, name­ly by reduc­ing the num­ber of work­ing employ­ees, decreas­ing the demand for skills and shrink­ing the avail­abil­i­ty of cap­i­tal stock. Is the GDP still the right para­me­ter to assess the per­for­mance or the eco­nom­ic and social well-being of a country?

In her lat­est Duet Inter­view, Dr Cal­daro­la, author of Big Data and Law, has asked Prof.  Marc Bertonèche, Eco­nom­ics Pro­fes­sor at Uni­ver­si­ties such as INSEAD, Har­vard, Oxford, Bor­deaux, to dis­cuss the impact of Big Data on economies.


Is there room for human­i­ty in the world of Big Data?

Edzard Reuter

Big Data offers many new pos­si­bil­i­ties: Dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion and the automa­tion of val­ue-added chains lead to greater effi­cien­cy in pro­duc­tion and ser­vices. At the same time, Big Data is behind cre­at­ing cus­tomer pro­files and analysing these to ren­der the mar­ket­ing of prod­ucts and ser­vices more effec­tive. Fur­ther­more, Big Data can also be use­ful in low­er­ing cor­rup­tion in admin­is­tra­tive areas owing to soft­ware-sup­port­ed doc­u­men­ta­tion and much more. What changes will we see in our soci­ety? Where is it all head­ing or where should it be going?

Dr Cal­daro­la, author of Big Data and Law and for­mer CEO of Daim­ler Benz AG Edzard Reuter reflect on the mean­ing of being human and human inter­ac­tion in the dig­i­tal age.


Does Big Data offer con­struc­tive solutions?

Prof. Dr Maren Urn­er – Pho­to: Lea Franke

Big Data is a quan­ti­ta­tive tool that mea­sures and depicts cor­re­la­tions, com­par­isons and fre­quen­cies. Does it pro­vide us with solu­tions, or does it mere­ly serve to indi­cate where a solu­tion might be found, owing to its eval­u­a­tion. How can Big Data serve as a con­struc­tive solu­tion, as well as aid­ing and sup­port­ing the human brain?

In her Duet inter­view with neu­ro­sci­en­tist and best sell­ing author Prof. Maren Urn­er, Dr Cal­daro­la, author of the recent book Big Data and Law, talks with her on the pos­si­bil­i­ties of con­struc­tive crit­i­cism and news cov­er­age in rela­tion to Big Data.
