Morning Briefing: Virtual Competition

 

Brussels, 1st December 2016, 08:00 am – 10:00 am

While consumers reap many benefits from online purchasing, the sophisticated algorithms and data-crunching that make browsing so convenient are also changing the nature of market competition, and not always for the better. In markets continually manipulated by bots and algorithms, is competitive pricing an illusion?

Virtual Competition raises timely questions, amongst which computers colluding, consumer profile-tracking, behavioral discrimination and the impact of sales of personal data on competition.
