Intro Slides for Daniela Barbosa for the following panel:
Business Risks of Web 3.0. What Risks?
The business risks for Web 3.0 are fundamentally changing with increased public scrutiny of data privacy, portability, expanded Web Services, data sharing, cloud computing, etc. New privacy laws, new technological capabilities, and new user demands have created a situation where the question most frequently cited by students of Web 3.0 implementations have asked: we understand how beneficial it is to link data and derive new improved services, knowledge about our users/customers but what about privacy, regulation from the consumer perspective? Added to this on the enterprise side is the apprehension that with data portability, meshing data, comes loss of core business competitiveness. This session clearly explains why "you should have no fear": Web 3.0 is flexible enough to provide a tight access control relative to who, when, with whom data is owned, and by using Semantic Web Services, add a layer of security via programmatic and granular permissioning to which of your partners or developers can link to which piece of information (in a way that DBMS of today cannot). Key questions are discussed: who owns user data? How should users be able to reuse it? Why should companies consider allowing their users' personal data to be easily transportable? The answer here is: because in the end it will bring our users/customers closer, a finding many major enterprises have realized: Nokia, etc.
