2:15 PM Disruptor Session: How the NSW Data Analytics Centre is Acting as the Agent of Change to help Government Keep up with Innovation and Disruption

The Data Analytics Centre (DAC) is a start-up within the NSE Government and based in the Finance, Services and Innovation Department. Set with a various amount of tasks and challenges like investigating the 48,000 automatic fire alarms set off of which 97% were unwanted, they are overall looking to solve challenges while raising the level of ambition for agencies. The DAC’s ultimate goal is to help all agencies lift their data analytics capability and problem solving ability. They are doing this through sophisticated analytical approaches which go beyond data linkage like machine learning, continuous data based exploration and more.
