Data and Competitive Advantage

Here are three short interviews about “competing with data:” Erik Brynjolffson, Jeff Hammerbacher, and the Butler basketball coach Brad Stevens. The interviews don’t get into too much detail, at all, but nonetheless are interesting to read (or, you can watch the video format of the interviews at the above link).

Butler’s basketball successes are sort of curious, given their size/resources – so nice to learn a bit more about their approach (or, how they impute the success).  Of course, luck is always an alternative explanation for any success (Alchian, 1950).
