Moderator: KENNETH CUKIER
Business Correspondent, The Economist

The era of big data presents incredible opportunities -- smarter cities, stronger companies, faster medicine -- but just as many challenges. Storage is scarce, systems overloaded, governments and businesses know too much. The world now contains unimaginably vast amounts of digital information, which is growing exponentially. Managed well, this data can be used to engineer new engines of economic value, unlock scientific breakthroughs, and hold politicians accountable. Managed poorly, it can cause great harm.

The financial crisis showed that complex models that analyze large quantities of data do not always reflect financial risk in the real world. The financial crisis was sparked by big data -- and there will be others. But the data deluge will also generate millions of new ideas for how to solve big problems, build new markets, and expand existing ones. Ideas Economy: Information is a fresh look at knowledge management for the information age.

The Economist will bring together theorists, strategists, and innovators who understand how to harness data to create value and advance individual, corporate, and social good. We will sift through the vast quantities of current thinking on data to uncover the best ways forward. And we will apply the lessons of the Ideas Economy, about innovation, human capital, and intelligent infrastructure, to uncover new sources of growth and accelerate human progress across the globe.

WikiLeaks: Security, Diplomacy and Global Gossip

WikiLeaks: Security, Diplomacy and Global Gossip
With the media firestorm created by the content of WikiLeaks' release of US diplomatic cables, a corresponding debate over the future of diplomacy and the prevention of other leaks has also taken place. While many commentators agree that the cables have portrayed the US foreign service in a positive light, others argue that the potential for future leaks will make diplomacy more secretive, and ultimately less effective.

The Role of the Media in Post-Conflict Northern Ireland

The Role of the Media in Post-Conflict Northern Ireland
Since Northern Ireland's sectarian politics turned to power-sharing in 1998, the country has struggled to define itself within its "peace process". The media serves as a barometer of this progress as it re-defines its own purpose within the newly formed society.

Caroline Porter takes a look specifically at the role of different media outlets, with particular emphasis on the most popular radio shows, to see how the media becomes a player in the contemporary peace process of Northern Ireland.

For transcript and download versions of this lecture, please visit the event's page on the Gresham College website: The Role of the Media in Post-Conflict Societies: A Contemporary Look at Northern Ireland
