Speaker:
Bob Crooks, MBE, Chair of the BCS Green IT Specialist Group

Details:

The BCS Green IT Specialist Group is taking forward an initiative to raise awareness of the Internet of Things and the issues this new technology raises. Last year we developed a demonstrator for the IoT using simple and cheap technologies including sensors and Arduino and Raspberry PI processors, typically available through retail outlets. We have now worked with a small team at Leeds Beckett University to produce a 45 min video of that demonstrator and to explore the wider context and challenges presented by the IoT.

I will provide some background on IoT and then run the video and lead a discussion about IoT its impacts, opportunities and challenges. I will also be able to provide a summary of the government Digital Catapult study around the policy issues IoT raises for the UK eg privacy, dependency.

This event is open to the public and is free of charge. You do not need to book for the event, you can just turn up.
