Network of Excellence in Internet Science (Definition and Applications, M.Ott, NICTA)

  1. 1. Science Envy• Physics – Looking for the GOD particle• Medicine – Curing cancer• Internet – Serving more porn
  2. 2. Mid-life Crisis• We are the plumbers• Industry ignores us• Our “Large Hadron Colliders” are privately owned• Most interesting publications – Patents!
  3. 3. Why?• Ubiquitous communication and low-barrier to information is CHANGING society – Work – Commerce – Organize• Traditional constraint (primarily geography) no longer hold• Historic artifacts no longer fit – state sovereignty – ‘local’ laws
  4. 4. Theory – Experimental Validation• We don’t have a FIXED base – Except maybe for basic human behavior• Measurements - Danger to predict the PAST – Behavior is often constraint by technology – Emerging behavior is often chaotic
  5. 5. Running out of Business Model• Mobile operators don’t have a business model in a few years• Need to change the way they operate• Very interested in FI ideas and solutions• Need to take advantage of all the information they collect or could collect Lots of DATA!!
  6. 6. Privacy• “Protecting Privacy” is the WRONG way• Personal data is a tradable commodity• What are the right mechanisms?
  7. 7. Big Data – An Education Issue• We need 100,000s researchers who can extract value• We need 1,000,000s of knowledge workers to be able to ask good questions
