AlphaGo depends on using a large amount of data to derive "intelligent" decisions. Globally, AlphaGo's success is being celebrated as the beginning of new data industry and business. The question, then, is where the large amount of data come from? Has it been shared in a fair manner that benefits all the parties involved, including the owners and the users? We would argue that a new generation of data industry and business would not be possible if the fair sharing of a large amount of data is not properly realized. In this talk, we shall address issues related to the legal, economical, and technical aspects of the fair sharing of big data, aimed at creating a next generation of data industry and business that benefits every human being on earth.
