The OzNome Initiative seeks to embrace the information age, big data and digital technology to deliver a more connected Australia and an innovation boost to enhance national productivity.
The concept – what is OzNome?
Imagine that all of the data and information about Australia was linked and readily accessible to those with a right and and need to use it. Imagine that this information was connected seamlessly to our knowledge base as encapsulated in various predictive models. Imagine a world where fit-for-purpose information, necessary for a particular activity, regardless of the scale of that activity, is available as and when it is needed, ready for use, delivered to where it is needed, sensitive to any privacy concerns.
The OzNome Initiative proposes a 10-year research programme to undertake the work necessary to realise such a world. An initiative that, on completion in 2025, would see Australia as the first country to boast an historical, current and future digital representation of everything, and the ability to explore, update, and model this capability to improve economic, social and environmental outcomes across the country, and drive unprecedented increases in national productivity.
