This is the biggest Big Data Week yet
The Pawsey Supercomputing Centre has been coordinating a series of events for Big Data Week since 2013.
Perth Data Week 2016 is a showcase of what WA has to offer in terms of data analytics and other ‘Big Data’ projects. Independent of other international big data weeks, the objective is to highlight and promote the ever-growing range of big data projects and applications here in Perth, and which have the potential to make WA an even better place to live and work.
The Hon. Bill Marmion MLA, Minister for Finance and State Development, and Western Australia’s leaders in big data across government, industry and research, will officially launch Perth Big Data Week 2016 on Monday 2nd May.
Students, businesses, government, academics and the general public are encouraged to attend a series of events to learn about the career, research and business opportunities that WA ‘Big Data’ initiatives can provide.

Sharing your data through Open Data WA, Tuesday 3rd May
Nearly 1,000 datasets from some 40 WA public sector agencies are now shared with the WA community through data.wa.gov.au. The WA Open Data team at Landgate have received requests from the community for much more – from land development applications, to shark attacks and popular baby names. That’s where you come in.
Help the WA community do more with the data we generate everyday by joining the WA Open Data team in The Vault @Spacecubed on 3 May for a short hands-on workshop on helping others discover new uses for the data you create. Celebrating Big Data Week 2016, we’ll help you start the journey of sharing your knowledge with the world in a new way through data.wa.gov.au over some good coffee and morning tea.
When: Tuesday 3rd May 2016, 09:30 – 10:30
Where: Spacecubed (The Vault), 45 St Georges Terrace, Perth
RSVP: Register today to join us for this short hands-on workshop by emailing the WA Open Data team at firstname.lastname@example.org. Spaces are limited so please get in touch soon.
