Oliver Wyman Forum Explores the Future of Data at Davos

Sponsored by Businesswire

The Oliver Wyman Forum will explore how unrestricted access to data has led to both innovation and risks for individuals at the World Economic Forum Annual Global Meeting in Davos.

The invitation-only panel on Wednesday, January 22 titled Data Futures Collide – Enabling Responsible Data-Driven Innovation will explore questions of data ownership and how regulation can serve the needs of both business and society. The panel will be moderated by Douglas Elliott, a partner at Oliver Wyman, who focuses on the intersection of public policy and finance. Elliott serves as the co-lead of the Oliver Wyman Forum’s Future of Data initiative. Panelists include:

“Society is moving towards increasing constraints on data and further coordination and thinking is needed on how to unlock the benefits of data in a way that minimizes its risks,” said John Romeo, Managing Partner and Head of the Oliver Wyman Forum. “We will explore the potential collision of present and future data needs, how to manage data and why the structures, architectures and partnerships we create today will determine future winners and losers.”

The Future of Data is a new initiative for the Oliver Wyman Forum. The Forum also focuses on the impact of AI on cities, the future of mobility, and cyber risk.

Media is invited to attend but seating is limited. For more details or to RSVP, please email:
