Presented by the Wharton School of Business

Networks powered by algorithms are eating everything. Many of the contemporary technology trends with the greatest significance for the economy and for public policy—Internet of Things, Big Data, Platform Economy, Blockchain, and Algorithmic Society—should be seen as manifestations of this larger phenomenon. This conference will consider the deep questions the algorithmic networked world poses for freedom, innovation, fairness, and human agency. Several TAP scholars will participate.
