Australian Govt Publishes Response on Proposals to Turn Citizens Into Data Points

The Australian government published last Wednesday its reply to proposals to use citizen information as Facebook-like data points, pledging 65 million AUD for the move to harness big data.

Responding to the Data Availability and Use inquiry, Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Digital Transformation Michael Keenan mentioned three features that will underpin the data use plan: a new Consumer Data Right that will give citizens more transparency and control over their data, a new National Data Commissioner who will oversee the public data system, and new legislative and governance arrangements to improve data use while protecting sensitive information.
