Panel 2: Adding Data to Your IP Monetization Playbook
Data assets are now a key driver of corporate value.   Starting with software companies such as Facebook and Google, and proliferating into the automotive and other leading industries, data-centric innovation is rapidly reshaping the competitive landscape and has been fueled by advancements in the internet of things (IoT), autonomous systems, connected devices and vehicles, and artificial intelligence (AI).  The tremendous value of data is widely recognized, but navigating the complex minefield of ownership, protection and privacy issues can be crucial to effective data monetization and business survival.  This panel of experts will explore the state-of-the-art in data rights, data protection and licensing strategies, prevailing and emerging monetization business models, and perspectives from industry leaders in managing and leveraging data from internal sources, external users, and along the supply chain.  The panel will include an IP attorney specializing in data, privacy, and licensing matters, an IP valuation expert who is actively engaged in valuing data assets, as well as industry leaders with unique insights on optimizing data and its value.
