There’s much talk about how digitization has shaped the media environment, the way we influence “the market”, whether that is business or politically related. Some time ago, I tried my hand at shaping a sort of conceptual framework for “digital power” (here and here). I haven’t stopped being preoccupied about the topic.
Ahead of the Geopolitics for Business workshop on Sept. 21 – where we’ll discuss about how fintech shapes human resources and how all that plays for geopolitics, I decided to share with you some of my ‘readings’ on the topic.
- How does AI value chain look like? How is it tied to the physical world? What’s the geopolitics of AI (maybe)? An interesting report here.
- An article from South East Asia, reporting on India’s concerns on the current trade wars and their implication for data regulation – one question raised: what’s jurisdiction for data? And how can regional cooperation help high tech development and… protection? The full article here.
- A summary for tech evolution, good for contextualizing where we are at today – you can check it out here.
- A sort of advice-article on how to build business strategy to make best use of technology, while also making sure you avoid forcing institutional change (which, in turn, can lead to distress on your workforce). This is particularly written for financial services industry which is now rapidly implementing tech innovation – but is contextual enough to “fit” for most of other business sectors as well. To read it in full – here it is.
- And finally, a “fun read” – data applications for football (soccer) clubs. While fun, it is also providing a useful map for niche businesses seeking to use data analysis to achieve performance. With a focus on human resources. Check it out here.
