CENSIS 5th Technology Summit, 8 November 2018
Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow, Scotland G2 3NY
9:00 am – 5.00 pm, followed by a drinks reception
CENSIS is Scotland’s centre of excellence for Sensor and Imaging Systems and the Internet of Things. Almost 400 people attended our 4th Tech Summit in 2017 and the event is fast establishing itself as a fixture on the Scottish tech scene and a growing national event for sensor systems and IoT. This year more than 500 have already registered.
Now in its fifth year, the event brings delegates together for a day of presentations, exhibitions, discussion and networking. The event also includes a large exhibition area, with demonstrations from technology providers and near-to-market academic research groups.
Our final agenda has been published and our day includes presentations on IoT business models, cybersecurity (the speaker will be from the National Cyber Security Centre, a part of GCHQ), Industry 4.0, autonomic and connected vehicles, case studies and much more. We even delve into how sensing, AI and IoT can help prevent crime detection and identify security threats with word forensics experts Prof Niamh Nic Daeid of the Leverhulme Centre for Forensic Science.
Our Chair is Melinda Matthews Clarkson, CEO of CodeClan, Scotland's digital skills academy and our opening address will be give by Ivan McKee MSP, Minister for Trade, Investment and Innovation.
Our keynote will be given by Hugo Fiennes, CEO of Electric Imp. Hugo led the hardware team at Apple for the first four generations of the iPhone, before moving to Nest where he helped to build the Nest thermostat. It was during his time at Nest that Hugo realised connected devices were going to change the world for the better, but only if they were secure, maintainable, and flexible, and so Electric Imp was born.
Hugo will also be delivering an IoT masterclass the following day, 9 November. This is selling out fast but we are taking names of people who are interested and are looking in to live streaming this.
Exhibition space is sold out and over 40 exhibitors will join us on the day.
The event is free to attend.. For more information visit https://censis.org.uk/2018/06/27/censis-5th-tech-summit/
