Big Data & Transparency
Katherine Pease, Cornerstone Capital Group
While recent political and corporate scandals have brought big data into the forefront in negative ways, the reality is that the ever-increasing ability to collect and manage large amounts of data is changing the way we do just about everything from online shopping to investment decisions. But, in addition to helping to develop targeted ads and match friends online, big data has the potential to solve big problems. What technologies exist that are harnessing this data for good? How can data be used to tackle climate change, supply chain transparency and political engagement? And how, as investors, can we use this information to better inform our financial and impact decisions? This session will explore how big data can be used by investors to tackle some of the world’s toughest problems. Hear from leaders in the corporate, investor and advocacy space on what we can expect in the future, and how we can better navigate and engage in a world of information overload.
