We have been measuring the physical world for a long time, so what’s changed?
What is all the hype about? In a word, it's connectivity. We can now connect all of these disparate systems and literally instrument the entire world.
The world is just beginning to recognize the enormous potential of connectivity, particularly in the industrial technology that makes our society work efficiently, and the insight that we can gain from all the data we acquire every day.
We are now using data and connecting instruments that will have a significant impact on the way we farm, fly, design cities and so much more. Professor Danielle George will discuss her work on solving one of the 14 World Engineering Grand Challenges and how she makes it part of her mission to show how creative engineering is. She will discuss her projects in radio astronomy, farming and aerospace and tell us about the smartest machine she knows.
Danielle George is Professor in Microwave Communication Engineering and is the Vice Dean for Teaching and Learning in the Faculty of Science and Engineering, University of Manchester.
This event has been organised together with the Sid Vale Association.
