This presentation argues that in order to understand Big Data and its societal consequences, a combination of ethical and epistemological analysis is needed as certain ethical implications – e.g., related to issues of anonymity and privacy – can only be properly assessed if the underlying epistemic practices – e.g., new ways of re-identification and de-anonymization – are recognized and taken into account.

Many Intellectual Property platforms have been created with various degrees of success but no widely recognised institution exists that can help owners wanting to sell or license their Intellectual Property or support buyers in identifying IP that they may be interested in purchasing.

This state of affairs perpetuates a situation in the Intellectual Property market in which costs are high and deals are made only following extensive negotiation (often on the basis of non-transparent price structures).
