More Details..

Barely a week goes by without a new privacy revelation or scandal. Whether by hackers or spy agencies or social networks, violations of our personal information have shaken entire industries, corroded relations among nations, and bred distrust between democratic governments and their citizens. Polls reflect this concern, and show majorities for more, broader, and stricter regulation -- to put more laws "on the books." But there was scant evidence of how well tighter regulation actually worked "on the ground" in changing corporate (or government) behavior -- until now.

This intensive five-nation study goes inside corporations to examine how the people charged with protecting privacy actually do their work, and what kinds of regulation effectively shape their behavior. And the research yields a surprising result. The countries with more ambiguous regulation -- Germany and the United States -- had the strongest corporate privacy management practices, despite very different cultural and legal environments. The more rule-bound countries -- like France and Spain -- trended instead toward compliance processes, not embedded privacy practices. At a crucial time, when Big Data and the Internet of Things are snowballing, Privacy on the Ground helpfully searches out the best practices by corporations, provides guidance to policymakers, and offers important lessons for everyone concerned with privacy, now and in the future.

What happens when Big Data is made open to YOU?

Discover how Open Data can benefit you, your business, and your brand

Open Data Now is an instant classic—essential reading.” --Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence and Focus

What is Open Data? Open Data is the world's greatest free resource--unprecedented access to thousands of databases--and it is one of the most revolutionary developments since the Information Age began. Combining two major trends--the exponential growth of digital data and the emerging culture of disclosure and transparency--Open Data gives you and your business full access to information that has never been available to the average person until now. Unlike most Big Data, Open Data is transparent, accessible, and reusable in ways that give it the power to transform business, government, and society.

Open Data Now is an essential guide to understanding all kinds of open databases--business, government, science, technology, retail, social media, and more--and using those resources to your best advantage. You'll learn how to tap crowds for fast innovation, conduct research through open collaboration, and manage and market your business in a transparent marketplace.

Open Data is open for business--and the opportunities are as big and boundless as the Internet itself. This powerful, practical book shows you how to harness the power of Open Data in a variety of applications:

  • HOT STARTUPS: turn government data into profitable ventures
  • SAVVY MARKETING: understand how reputational data drives your brand
  • DATA-DRIVEN INVESTING: apply new tools for business analysis
  • CONSUMER IN FORMATION: connect with your customers using smart disclosure
  • GREEN BUSINESS: use data to bet on sustainable companies
  • FAST R&D: turn the online world into your research lab
  • NEW OPPORTUNITIES: explore open fields for new businesses

Whether you're a marketing professional who wants to stay on top of what's trending, a budding entrepreneur with a billion-dollar idea and limited resources, or a struggling business owner trying to stay competitive in a changing global market--or if you just want to understand the cutting edge of information technology--Open Data Now offers a wealth of big ideas, strategies, and techniques that wouldn’t have been possible before Open Data leveled the playing field.

The revolution is here and it's now. It's Open Data Now.

PRAISE FOR OPEN DATA NOW

"In Open Data Now, Joel Gurin presents a strategy for success in the coming era of massive data. Open Data gives business unprecedented power to understand customers and earn their trust. Any organization that wants to connect with the people it serves needs these lessons. Open Data Now is an instant classic—essential reading for entrepreneurs, small business owners, corporate executives, or anyone who needs to understand this new information reality." -- Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence and Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence

"Data is the new oil of the Internet, yet much of it is locked up because of habits inherited from the days of index cards and filing cabinets. In Open Data Now, Joel Gurin, who lives at the epicenter of this new data-driven world, describes how these hidden resources can be transformed into public wealth and vibrant commerce, and gives us a road map for making it happen. This book will convert you to a new way of thinking about data and open your eyes to huge new possibilities." -- Alex "Sandy" Pentland, Director, MIT Media Lab Entrepreneurship Program

"This compelling and cutting-edge book is a must-read for anyone following the panoply of issues swirling around personal and public data." -- Josh Gottheimer, General Manager, Strategic Initiatives and Operations, Microsoft

"Open Data is one of the most important ways in which society can tap information, extract new economic value, and promote government transparency. Joel Gurin has used his wide-ranging expertise to identify the landmarks--and the landmines--in this critical issue of global significance." -- Viktor Mayer-Schonberger and Kenneth Cukier, coauthors of Big Data

"Joel Gurin is a consumer advocate and big thinker. His insights into the new world of data mining and how it might change our lives give us a very important glimpse into what's to come in a society where data greases the wheels of its progress and problems." -- Bill Baker, President Emeritus, Educational Broadcasting Corporation

More Details..

This book aims to answer two questions that are fundamental to the study of agent-based economic models: what is agent-based computational economics and why do we need agent-based economic modelling of economy? This book provides a review of the development of agent-based computational economics (ACE) from a perspective on how artificial economic agents are designed under the influences of complex sciences, experimental economics, artificial intelligence, evolutionary biology, psychology, anthropology and neuroscience.

This book begins with a historical review of ACE by tracing its origins. From a modelling viewpoint, ACE brings truly decentralized procedures into market analysis, from a single market to the whole economy. This book also reviews how experimental economics and artificial intelligence have shaped the development of ACE. For the former, the book discusses how ACE models can be used to analyse the economic consequences of cognitive capacity, personality and cultural inheritance. For the latter, the book covers the various tools used to construct artificial adaptive agents, including reinforcement learning, fuzzy decision rules, neural networks, and evolutionary computation.

This book will be of interest to graduate students researching computational economics, experimental economics, behavioural economics, and research methodology.

More Details..

Innovation generates wealth and helps solve the problems facing humankind. Organizations and societies that are more innovative create more value, growth and jobs. But, despite these obvious and well established benefits, managers, industry leaders and politicians still struggle to find ways to foster innovation, ensure its continuity, and enhance its ability to harness knowledge and resources. It is not uncommon that public policies, competitive strategies and innovation practices designed for these purposes fail to achieve their goals.

This book builds on state of the art thinking and on the empirical observation of renewal processes in several sectors of the economy. By comparing these processes and sorting through their complexities the contributors highlight the core systems, mechanisms and strategies that converge to produce continuous innovation.  The editors argue that strong knowledge and financial resource feedback cycles can emerge around certain types of innovation activities. The resulting book not only advances the theory of innovation dynamics but can also help officials and practitioners to adjust institutional conditions in ways that “de-construct” innovation systems prone to long periods of innovation drought and “reassemble” them into systems with renewal cycles that perpetuate innovation.

More Details..

With the failure of economics to predict the recent economic crisis, the image of economics as a rigorous mathematical science has been subjected to increasing interrogation. One explanation for this failure is that the subject took a wrong turn in its historical trajectory, becoming too mathematical. Using the philosophy of mathematics, this unique book re-examines this trajectory.

Philosophy of Mathematics and Economics re-analyses the divergent rationales for mathematical economics by some of its principal architects. Yet, it is not limited to simply enhancing our understanding of how economics became an applied mathematical science. The authors also critically evaluate developments in the philosophy of mathematics to expose the inadequacy of aspects of mainstream mathematical economics, as well as exploiting the same philosophy to suggest alternative ways of rigorously formulating economic theory for our digital age. This book represents an innovative attempt to more fully understand the complexity of the interaction between developments in the philosophy of mathematics and the process of formalisation in economics.

Assuming no expert knowledge in the philosophy of mathematics, this work is relevant to historians of economic thought and professional philosophers of economics. In addition, it will be of great interest to those who wish to deepen their appreciation of the economic contours of contemporary society. It is also hoped that mathematical economists will find this work informative and engaging.

In this book, Alexander Ebner reconstructs the theory of entrepreneurship from an institutionalist perspective. It provides a fresh account of current theorising on entrepreneurship, specifically addressing Schumpeterian thought as well as Neo-Austrian, Neo-Schumpeterian and evolutionary approaches. A synthesis of these institutionalist arguments allows for outlining a new approach to the theory of entrepreneurship. It conceptualises the innovative generation and coordinative assimilation of technological novelty as an evolutionary process that is marked by paradigmatic qualities. The underlying emphasis on the relationship between institutional and technological change informs a reconsideration of the institutional embeddedness of entrepreneurship.
