    Price Discrimination, Big Data, and the Internet-of-Things

    1 PM EDT

    Debating price discrimination and consumer welfare is old news. But in the era of Big Data and self-learning price algorithms, near-perfect price discrimination may be possible. Online sellers’ efforts to use price optimization and dynamic differential pricing has sparked new debate over whether such price discrimination is permissible. Big Data is key to these technological advances, allowing companies to use customers’ location, demographic information, and search history to optimize behavioral advertisements, individual promotions, and pricing. Our panelists will discuss the sides of this debate in the context of talking refrigerators and self-driving cars.
