Free Evening Event – The Future of Computing

Free Evening Event – The Future of Computing

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic caused a fundamental shift in societal norms. Billions of people were driven online, relying on technology to enable them to work from home and maintain social ties. This talk will explore the ever-growing world of interconnected devices, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the future of computing in the era of machine learning and artificial intelligence.

A Q&A session will follow the talk, and visitors will have time to explore the exhibition floor.

Refreshments will be available.

No booking required, just turn up on the night.
