Digital platforms have been proliferating around the world, including Southeast Asia, at an increasing speed. Increasingly, they compete across different market segments to offer distinct products and services. As these digital platforms grow in size and scope, they have access to more data which enables their algorithms to better understand the needs of businesses and consumers.
This webinar brings together speakers with significant knowledge and experience with digital platform business and competition law to discuss the business strategies of digital platforms driving the development of their product ecosystems, as well as explore the roles and responsibilities of digital platforms as “gatekeepers”. The speakers will also examine the benefits and competition concerns arising from the ability of digital platforms to collect large amount of data from their users’ activities, and the competition law implications of utilising algorithms.
