The Future of Data-Driven Innovation

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation is pleased to present its research report on The Future of Data-Driven Innovation. 

This report explores the tremendous growth in data collection, delving into the implications on business and public policy. 

How big is Big Data? How can it be used for good? What about privacy? What role should the government play? This report seeks to address these questions and many others. 

The Foundation has invited six distinguished researchers to weigh in with chapters examining various aspects of data. 

We invite you to read each chapter here online, or read and download the report in PDF format.
