Algorithmic Strategies Panel at Web 2.0 Berlin


If somebody would ask us what a perfect panel would look like in autumn 2007, it'd had to be focused on the upcoming Open Protocol and Algorithm ideas in a world based on, but beyond, the current mainstream web trends. We'd first think of our very own Tom and very dear Dirk Baecker as foundation, invite Sean Park because of his views and brilliant Amazonbay video and also Jean-Paul Schmetz as Burda's digital renegade. When it comes to eloquently gluing all that together, Ms. Bunz would be the host of choice.

Well, thanks to Brady Forrest, the O'Reilly Web 2.0 Expo in Berlin and the people mentioned above this will come true on Tuesday, November 6th, as we've been invited to organize said panel, more information here. The abstract:

"Google's commercial success is based on the idea of identifying a variety of factors, from text analysis to human interest, and use them as variables in a giant mathematical equation that generates billions of revenue, widely known as AdSense. But how would a traditional corporation look like when it'd work like AdSense? Will we offshore intelligence to machines? What are the opportunities and threats? What happens when the whole world, from culture to politics become financial markets driven by algorithms? A joint state-of-the-art review of a new breed of businesses relying on mathematical models, potential scenarios how this approach will become mainstream and what this might mean to you and your business."

Would be a pleasure to see you there, and also a week later at the second X-Organisations: Berlin Biennial for Systemic Management.
