He is also a prolific author of the blockbuster best-selling book, Big Data, which was a finalist for Financial Times’ "2013 Business Book of the Year," and the professor of internet governance and regulation at the Internet Institute at Oxford University. He has been studying data privacy, governance in virtual worlds, law and entrepreneurship, e-government, and big data and is an advocate of the right to be digitally ‘forgotten’ in the form of expiration dates for personal information. An expert on information law and regulation, he advises businesses, governments, and international organizations on the new economy and information society issues and helps organisations understand big data’s potential. For example, Walmart tripled sales by putting flashlights, batteries, and Pop-Tarts together at checkout during storms. He argues that big data analytics are revolutionizing the way people see and process the world, and each other. A revolution on par with the internet, it changes the way we think about business, health, politics, education, and innovation. He explains why big data is so powerful (it is more effective than random data sampling) and how it also poses fresh threats, from the inevitable end of privacy as we know it to the prospect of being penalized for things we haven’t even done yet. In a talk about the next big thing, Mayer-Schönberger helps audiences understand what they can expect from the vast amounts of information we gather and develop a data strategy for their organizations.
