CMU Adelaide to hold big data executive workshop

An executive workshop will be held at Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) Adelaide campus on 24–25 October 2018 on the topic of ‘Future of Governance: Big Data, Participation and Effective Regulation’.

The workshop is aimed at regulators and policymakers who need to meet the challenges and opportunities presented by big data and predictive analytics.

Even as regulation is on the cusp of being challenged by these technologies, regulators are under more pressure than ever before to involve citizens in their processes.

The workshop will pose the question, do data-driven techniques for making decisions threaten to supplant regulators’ traditional approaches to problem-solving using their expertise and experience?

Included in the registration cost for the two-day event will be:

  • a half-day, hands-on session learning the techniques of data mining and predictive analytics;
  • use of industry software with data set — no prior skills required;
  • support from CMU’s technical staff;
  • lunch and morning/afternoon tea.

When: Wednesday, 24 and Thursday, 25 October 2018

Where: Carnegie Mellon University in Australia, Victoria Square, Adelaide

Cost: $1200 + GST

Register: Future of Governance: Big Data, Participation and Effective Regulation
