Event description

Description

An informal conference designed to be inclusive and inspirational. Speakers will present thought provoking discussions around Tech For Good.

Daniel Melville - Bionic Hero for Open Bionics

Dan was born without a right arm, but this never stopped him giving everything a try. “When I was younger I used to wear a lot of prosthetics that didn’t really do anything other than make me feel negative about myself,” says Dan. “I never thought in my lifetime that I would ever be able to wear something like the Hero Arm. As a kid this was only a dream but now it’s reality it’s mind-blowing.” Dan has been part of the Open Bionics journey since 2014, demo-ing the arm all around the world.

Mark Stanley, Director Coraledge.

Mark will be talking Smart Berkshire –the Internet of “good” Things. He will introduce you to two exciting Internet of Things projects that have been funded through the Smart Berkshire programme. One project is concerned with the safety of women students, and the other aims to reduce the number of falls people suffer as they get into their senior years. Mark is UK “ambassador” for The Things Network and co-organiser of The Things Conference UK. He runs a small IoT company called Thingitude based in Reading – and he is hiring!
