Event description

Description

How would your life change if your computer could interface with your oven? What if your appliances could communicate with each other influenced by your habits and activity? In what ways can technology further alter and impact our day to day lives, and how can businesses offer increased availability and application of this burgeoning sector?

Join LCR Activate for a deep-dive into the Internet of Things - an exploration of how increased technological interconnection of ordinary, everyday home-items (such as smart toasters or wearable sensors) can and will be used to shape our lives.

Our fourth State of the Art event will bring together SMEs from the Liverpool City Region to hear from creative and digital experts about IoT. This event coincides with The Living Room of the Future at FACT, an immersive experience that uses data to personalise media to people delivered through multiple devices, in a home environment. There will be opportunities throughout the event for take part in a short interactive cinematic experience with the invitation to join us for the opening of The Living Room of the Future from 5pm onwards.


Speakers include:

Ian Forrester, Senior Producer at BBC R&D

Phoenix Perry, Lecturer in Physical Computing and Games at Goldsmiths, University of London

Patrick and Jen Fenner, Founders of DefProc and Initiators of The Things Network Liverpool

Dr Áine MacDermott, Senior Lecturer in Cyber Security and IoT at Liverpool John Moores University


Registration with tea and coffee from 1pm. Refreshments available throughout the event.
