THE DATA ECONOMY WILL NOT BE BUILT ON DATA SYSTEMS ALONE
Data is changing our social and economic landscape, concentrating market power in a few industry sectors, and dimishing the relative value in others. For individuals, data is raising concerns about trust, privacy and security, as well as the equitable distribution of gains from data. A market economy cannot function without trust. Trust deficits can unravel data markets and undermine civic and social cohesion. All of these factors must be taken into account in our understanding and contributions to the evolving data economy.
CLDS is organized into research program areas, connected laboratories, a unique industry-driven business exchange (BX) program, educational workshops and workforce education and training.
CLDS partners with industry to provide state of the art workforce education and training modules. Pilot programs have been conducted in data science and blockchain fundamentals.
The goal of the Business Exchange (BX) program is to work directly with industry to conduct Proof of Concept (POC) studies, demonstrating that a design concept, system under test (SUT), or business concept is feasible.
CLDS research topic areas include studies in the data economy, business dynamism, public sector and civic technology modernization, and platform and ecosystem development. A specialized program area looks at global health policy and data analytics. CLDS also hosts the long-running "How Much Information" report series, tracking the rate of data, information and media growth.
