Future Communication Systems

Saturday 15th October 2016 10:30AM – 11:30AM

The Earth is about 4.5 billion years old, and yet the use of electromagnetic waves for wireless communications first happened just around 100 years ago! So how will we communicate 100 years from now and what sort of devices will we use?

The answers may surprise you.

Dr Des McLernon is a Reader in Signal Processing for wireless communications at the university of Leeds. He researches the mathematical algorithms that make all electronic devices work – from satellites to mobile phones and from sat nav to television. When not doing that he plays jazz piano in restaurants and pubs.
