Summary

This panel brought together experts in information architecture, statistical methodology, and the economics of the internet in order to consider how "big data" is shaping the 21st century economy. Panelists Susan Athey, Hal Varian, and Larry Wasserman discussed the challenges that large data sets present, the questions such data might help us answer, and what that means for all of us in the years ahead. Kayla Reinherz, a fourth year economics student, moderated the event, which was co-organized by University of Chicago undergraduates and the Becker Friedman Institute for the benefit of the undergraduate community.
