Th3: The Digital Century / Professor Neil Stansfield, National Physical Laboratory
It has been said that the nineteenth century was the century of chemistry, the twentieth century the century of physics. The twenty first century is the century of digital. In 2020 over two thirds of the earth’s population had internet access – 96% in the UK. The number of active smartphones in the world grew to nearly 3.5 billion. 30 billion devices were wirelessly connected to the internet to form an ‘internet of things. Welcome to the digital age, where digital technologies are the engine of the economy and of society, and data is the fuel. But can we be confident in the technologies that are the bedrock of this digital world? So join us to talk about the digital world and discuss how we can harness science and engineering to provide trust and confidence in this rapidly changing world.
We will offer a varied programme of workshops, shows and presentations between 1.30pm pm and 8pm each evening Monday- Friday. For more details and a full e-programme please visit https://www.talkphysics.org/groups/talking-physics/forum/topic/welsh-physics-teachers-conference-brecon-2021/
