Data-Driven Culture and Data Literacy: Why Digital Government Will Fail Without Them

Alan D. Duncan, VP Analyst, Gartner

We’re entering the second half of the Information Age; we have the network and software infrastructure, now we need to deal with what's really important - the data itself.

This session will outline practical advice for governmental business and IT leaders involved in digital transformation initiatives, ensuring that data literacy and data-driven culture are given the attention they deserve.
● How can you recognize policy, operations areas and behaviours inhibited by lack of shared culture for data?
● How can you take initial steps to bridge the communications gap and realize more digital business value?
● Why is it critical to assess the capabilities of your data and analytics community and improve data literacy?

Meetup: Best Approaches in Getting Buy-In and Sell Data and Analytics to Stakeholders

Getting buy-in is a consistent challenge for data and analytics leaders, such as CDOs. To do so, they must “sell” the overall vision and strategy for data and analytics and the measurable business benefits, while also overcoming any stakeholder objections and underlying change resistance challenges. How do you articulate the benefits of analytics solutions to executives? How do you link data and analytics efforts to business outcomes or trace them through to hard benefits? How do you encourage experimentation and entrepreneurialism while overcoming change aversion and the need for certainty? Meetups are networking sessions that allow you to connect with a small group peers, without Gartner facilitation, in the spirit of solving business problems together. Please make every effort to attend your Meetup as your peers will be looking forward to meeting with you. Please note: Reserved for end-users only. Pre-registration required.

Please Note: based on availability and eligibility you may sign-up for this session via Conference Navigator after you register for this conference.

Case Study: AI Ethics in Practice — Embedding Responsible AI in the Enterprise

Jason Tamara Widjaja, Associate Director, Data Science (AI), Singapore IT Hub, MSD International

The path to embedding AI as a sustainable value-creating capability has a high hurdle to cross. The autonomous nature of AI systems brings issues of ethics and values to the fore. These are topics that may not traditionally sit comfortably with technology and commercial teams and require new paradigms of leadership to successfully navigate. Touching practical focus areas such as algorithmic bias, video surveillance and recommendation engines, this talk provides an actionable overview of the AI ethics space, a framework to embed ethics by design based on Singapore’s AI governance framework, and insights into the talent and organizational shifts required to develop trusted AI solutions.

Guest Keynote: Adapt to Thrive: Driving Data for Good and Building Your Adaptability Quotient (AQ)

Tané Hunter, Cancer Researcher, Bio-Informatician and Science Communicator, Co-founder at Future Crunch

Technology is neither good or bad, nor is it neutral. That’s why we have to set our intentions right. If organizations want to deliver enduring success in a digital world, they must understand the need to act ethically, be unbiased, inclusive and use their data for good. Whilst digital transformation is, of course, enabled through technology, the human dimension is just as important. It’s not the machines vs humans — it’s machines and humans working in collaboration to augment our intelligence and capability.

Therefore it is important to foster what Harvard Business Review calls “the new competitive advantage” — your Adaptability Quotient (AQ). You’ve heard of IQ and EQ; this century belongs to those that are quick to read change and act on its signals. This keynote will dive into current cutting-edge applications and new ideas about how you can prepare for change, and take advantage of a dazzling array of unprecedented opportunities as data and AI transform almost every aspect of the world in which we live, work and play.
