query:data – a national dialogue on innovation and fairness in the digital economy

Many benefits can arise from big data – improved public health, stronger fraud detection, improved efficiencies and processes, relevant advertising, and access to more suitable products. However, emerging issues such as lack of efficacy of privacy policies, an outdated approach to consent and  consumer profiling practices increase the risk of poor consumer outcomes.

CPRC will be releasing a new research report Consumer Data and the Digital Economy at our upcoming conference, query:data, in Melbourne on 16 July 2018. What’s really important at this stage of the policy cycle, is that we recognise the benefit of bringing together the disciplines and the sectors to explore how data is fundamentally changing our markets.

Business experts, academics and regulators will be participating in a national dialogue on ways to use consumer data to innovate, improve consumer control, and to drive competition. Keynotes include ACCC Chair Rod Sims and Australian Human Rights Commissioner, Ed Santow. Leading academics will also be discussing the ethical, legal and human rights considerations on consumer data collection, sharing and use practices.

Tom Burton, Publisher of The Mandarin will also be facilitating the days proceedings as MC.
