Share this on social media:

ConTech 2019 is aimed at information providers and content owners who increasingly have to address the challenges of competing in a data world, driven by machine learning, artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies. The vent is aimed at helping organisations assess their organisational and product data maturity. It will explore how data science and analytics are changing the world, by driving data informed decisions made by people and, in some cases, machines. 

Core themes will include:

  • The intersection of content, data and technology is changing the landscape – What data science tools and techniques can you adopt to improve content creation, management and delivery? What role do artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning have in developing the next generation of content products? What does a good content project built around data look like today? What will the content product of the future be?
  • Demonstrating the value of AI? What choices do you make? – Organisational, staffing, cultural directions to pursue to How do you manage the cultural issues of bringing content and data specialists together? How do you develop a culture that embraces data? How can your content teams become rapid and flexible enough to exploit the opportunities of richer data? What does a good data driven content project look like?  What are the lessons of projects that have deliverable measurable benefits?
  • Data communication and visualisation – our programme will explore the critical importance of these disciplines. We will look at how data analytics projects can fail or not have the desired impact – and in this theme we can talk about the right staffing and organisational structures as well as data visualization techniques. ConTech 2019 will introduce a poster ‘gallery’ to further provide examples of this point; and
  • Data ethics and innovation – How do you adopt a more data driven approach to your content while maintaining the trust of your users? What is best practice in data ethics and how does it impact your reputation? How might geo-politics impact future innovation? Will the 'data permissive' own the future? How can we responsibly use data? Where is the balance?

There are pre-agenda registration rates available.
