CSIRO's Data61 welcomes for its second year, D61+LIVE – Australia's premier data innovation event.
Bringing together the D61 Network of technology companies, government, universities and startups across sectors and disciplines, D61+LIVE is a forum to discuss the innovation challenges we face today and debate the opportunities for Australia to lead and define its place in the world in the digital age.
Australia is at a tipping point. Every sector of the economy is digitising; industries and markets that were previously disconnected are now converging and the intensity of competition is increasing.
This structural change is happening locally and globally and is profoundly impacting the way we work and live. Platform companies like Google, Facebook, Uber, Amazon and eBay are collapsing incumbent business models and disrupting entire industries.
Companies and countries are being forced to respond by pursuing data-driven, multi-sector and multi-disciplinary collaboration and problem-solving at a different pace and scale.
D61+ LIVE features global and national innovators at the coal-face of transformation and new industry building. The event will explore how leadership in entrepreneurship, science and academia and traditional industry, can enable Australian organisations to adapts to fast-changing competitive environments.
Breakthrough science and digital technology being developed across Data61 and the CSIRO will be showcased with 40 demo booths.
