"The Uses and Abuses of Technology"
Disruptive technology is a term we are used to hearing to describe exciting new technical developments, but disruptive behaviour can often result from the misuse of technology, perhaps reflecting the darker side of our human nature. Steve will be considering whether we could or should we take account of this when designing for the future?"
Jonathan Mitchner,Lead Technologist, ICT, InnovateUK“Glimpse of the future – The direction of travel …"
A brief overview of some directions that disruptive technologies of the future could take us in, setting the big picture of the ways that the world is changing, at an inevitably increasing pace. The aim will be to stimulate and open minds to consider beyond the current situation and the impact that such changes could have through a number of examples.
PLACES ARE LIMITED & ATTENDANCE IS BY REGISTRATION ONLY by contacting Nicky Daniels.
