Third Thursday May 2019

data smartcities innovation

We live in the age of Data. But how do Data, SmartCities and Innovation connect?

This month for Third Thursday we were joined by Merrick Spain, Smart Cities Lead, Telstra Enterprise and Adam Beck, Executive Director, Smart Cities Council Australia New Zealand to discuss how data-driven communities and their stakeholders can discover value through exploratory data collaboration.

Adam and Merrick explained the importance of extracting value from data and also understanding what it means to you and your business/organisation/startup.

If you are interested in finding out more about the Northern Territory Data Workstream associated with the Switching on Darwin Project and would like to be involved, please email our Program Director, Wendy Pech.  Workshops will be commencing early June with Telstra Enterprise.
