Chaired by AUT Adjunct Professor Rod Oram, this is the third of a series of conversations about the future of Aotearoa New Zealand in a global economy. Big Data creates enormous opportunities for better understanding the impacts and effectiveness of economic and public policy, such as social investment.

But our newfound capacity for collecting data and targeting intervention creates risks as well as opportunities. How can we get the best out of Big Data without enabling the worst, whether in government, business and society?

- Professor Rhema Vaithianathan (co-director of Centre for Social Data Analytics, AUT)
- Professor Tahu Kukutai (National Institute of Demographic and Economic Analysis, University of Waikato)
- Keith Ng (investigative data journalist)
