MIT bigdata Living Lab at Lot Fourteen will bring together the public, private and research sectors to analyse big data to determine the most effective ways for South Australia to grow the economy and drive sustainable population growth.
A collaborative research initiative led by the South Australian Government in partnership and participation with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Bank SA, Optus and DSpark, the Living Lab will work to better understand social interactions within the various communities across South Australia.
The bigdata Living Lab will utilise MIT’s world leading secure data analysis tools and methodology to ensure data privacy is maintained and private and public organisations will be able to safely and securely analyse data to identify growth opportunities, improve government decision making and improve socio-economic outcomes.
