Supported By: 
Dept of Education & Department of Employment

This category is all about the challenges faced by Australia’s future workforce. Based on current trends what will the workforce landscape look like in 2030? Can you help the next generation take advantage of opportunities? What is the changing face of industry and skills that Australia needs to take stock off. Can your analysis of data help inform policy direction for a prosperous future? Perhaps you can help educate parents of today about the future of tomorrow.

Real2Fake is a webapp, that allows government departments to wash their data of all identifiable information.

It does this by combinding the private information with a randomly generated salt, then transforming it into a hash, the hash is then used as a seed to generate a new fake identity for the record. This means that when looking at the data, the user can put a name and face to the data.

This easy process of washing the private information removes the excuse that the data is private, allowing all government departments to securely release all of their big data.

Problems Identified:

We have examined the overall problem of data security which is a growing concern globally. We have applied our focus for the GovHack event toward the Government Health sector which can be a vulnerable area of concern. Our findings lead us to the particular issue of "ransomeware" that highlights this problem to be a growing concern whereby 4000 attacks occur daily across the world in the health sector alone of which Australia would be included.

My City in Virtual Reality

Why do we need Virtual Reality?

Virtual Reality is becoming popular day by day. Using this technology, users can feel the virtual experience of the places. The Gold Coast is hosting the Commonwealth 2018 Games. The Gold Coast is going to attract more visitors from all over the world for this event.

How does the Virtual Reality app work?

The world around us is rapidly changing - driverless cars, AI, molecular gastronomy, robots and augmented reality.  What does future employment look like for the prep students of 2016?  This hack uses data from ABS, Department of Education and Training mashed with vox pop interviews to project into the future to see which regions of Australia will experience a rapid shift in its employment base: mining towns, manufacturing heartlands and clerical suburbs.
