Center for Analytics and Technology in Society
Thought leadership and practical insights into the use of analytics and technology in society, especially health care, media and entertainment, and platform businesses.
Platforms and analytics are strongly synergistic because the essence of a platform is to orchestrate among a massive number of ecosystem partners and to do so in real-time and possibly over a very fluid and rapidly-changing set. These requirements create the imperative for big data analytics and algorithms.
The Center aims to advance the applications of information technologies in business and society. It will bridge two impactful and paradigm-changing technological pillars – platforms and data analytics – which have recently attracted tremendous academic and industrial activity, but mostly in isolation.
