This Conference brings together insights from government, policy makers, business, and academia on the latest research in the innovative use of data science, especially within the areas of finance, economic policy, agriculture, and GIS.
New data created by new technologies and devices are rapidly emerging as important to supplement and in some cases replace datasets collected by traditional means.
Data integration and the potential to enhance traditional datasets by linking, calibrating and interoperating them with ‘new’ data offers exciting opportunities for researchers, policy makers and businesses to gain new insight and perspective on existing research challenges, and to investigate new questions in the context of an increasingly connected and digital world.
Delegates will hear about how different datasets, and the way in which they are being used, are advancing research and policy decisions.
