An Empirical Study of Data Prices in Commercial Marketplaces

16 Jun

Santiago Andrés, PhD Student at IMDEA Networks Institute, Madrid, Spain

In-house Presentation

“Data” is emerging as a key cornerstone of the knowledge economy as the digitalization of key industries and sectors progresses. A large number of Data Marketplaces (DMs) have recently entered into scene aimed at helping owners monetize their data, and data buyers feed their ML models and make better data-driven decisions.

In this talk, we present a first of its kind measurement study of this thriving ecosystem and shed light on several totally unknown facts about it, such as what the prices of data products, or what the most valuable data categories are. We also compare prices across different DMs by means of ad hoc trained classifiers, and conduct a regression analysis for revealing what features are effectively driving the prices of financial, marketing and healthcare-related products in commercial DMs.
