BigInsights Data & AI Innovation Awards announced

The 2018 BigInsights Data & AI Innovation Awards have been presented by Innovation Minister Matt Kean.

These awards recognise teams and end users involved in groundbreaking work using data, AI and IoT to deliver business outcomes.

They were judged by a team of independent industry experts who conferred six awards that clearly demonstrated best practices in developing and deploying data and analytics or IoT techniques.

“While the ability to use data, IoT and AI has been talked about extensively for innovation, little has been discussed about benefits being realised by the early Australian pioneers in industry and start-ups. We acknowledge and congratulate these leaders in start-ups, government, research and enterprises who are using technology for data driven innovation,” said Atul Anjea, Partner and Awards Director at BigInsights.
