Multibillion-dollar industries, from search engines to social networking to online advertising, have been built on the aggregation of personal data, information the World Economic Forum likens to a “new type of raw material … on par with capital and labor.”We believe a new war will soon breakout, a War on Data.

Two personal data experts, Owen Tripp, co-founder and COO of and World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer, and DJ Patil, Data Scientist in Residence at Greylock and former Chief Scientist at LinkedIn, encourage businesses and entrepreneurs to disrupt the status quo through data.
