The discussion paper is now .

 

Australia needs to start a conversation about data governance in professional sport, including creating appropriate legal, organisational, and ethical limits around athlete data collection and use.

The event will launch a discussion paper, ‘Getting ahead of the game: Athlete data in professional sport’, developed by the Australian Academy of Science and the Minderoo Tech & Policy Lab at UWA Law School, with support from the Frontier Technology initiative of Minderoo Foundation.

The discussion paper reveals that Australian professional sports are collecting more personal information about athletes than they can meaningfully deal with. Concerningly, this data—which is personal, unique, and intimately revealing about individual athletes—amounts to excessively more information than has been proven to be useful. What are the stakes of exponential and unregulated growth in human monitoring for the workplace of professional sport, and beyond? What are the challenges, the opportunities, and the imperatives to act?

This event will bring together experts in professional sport, sport science, artificial intelligence, law, and governance to discuss the issues raised in the paper. The panel discussion will be chaired by renowned sports broadcaster Tracey Holmes.

Date: Wednesday 13 April 
Time: 6.00pm-7.00pm AEST, followed by refreshments 7.00pm-8.00pm AEST
Venue: Shine Dome and online

This event is delivered in partnership with Minderoo Foundation’s Frontier Technology Initiative and the Minderoo Tech & Policy Lab at the University of Western Australia.
