Data61 events explore the value of public data
The value of public data will be investigated at a series of free events for NSW Government employees in Sydney.
At the first event of the series, NSW Department of Finance, Services and Innovation together with the CSIRO’s Data61 will look at opportunities to unlock the value of public data to better inform public policy, improve services and benefit the citizens of NSW.
NSW Government employees can come along to the Sydney Startup Hub on Wednesday, 14 November to hear from a range of leading government thinkers about how technology can help governments drive impact through strategic use of their data, while managing risk and preserving privacy.
Attendees will be inspired about the value of data and walk away from the event with ideas about how data technology can be used to solve their agency’s challenges.
