Hear how data analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning helped to deliver more efficient employment services and matching of applicants to vacancies – and positive feedback from both applicants, partners and employers.

Coert du Plessis
Chief Executive Officer, MaxMine (AU)

Mining is intrinsic to human progress and survival. It produces essential elements, not only for our modern lifestyles but also for our green NetZero future. The IEA estimates we need to mine SIX times more metals than we do today! To better manage humanity’s scarce resources, MaxMine was born and has mastered operationalising data with operators and leaders to optimise performance and reduce mining’s carbon footprint.

Coert will touch on 3 lessons learnt at MaxMine in accelerating and advancing analytics in mining, a traditionally slow adopter of digital and data technology. Big Data Gamification, Establishing Data Trust and Making Sustainable Impact

Kate Bower
Consumer Data Advocate, CHOICE

After several consumer data controversies in recent months, including the Optus data breach and CHOICE’s investigation into the use of facial recognition tecnology in retail, consumer trust in businesses handling of data is at an all-time low. I’ll present CHOICE’s original research on the issues of most concern to consumers and suggest how we can restore trust in the system, so consumers and businesses can share the benefits of responsible data use while being protected from the harms of bad data practices.
