5G for Sceptics
Studio Resident, Tim Kindberg joins us for this lunchtime talk, the latest in his For Sceptics series, this time tackling 5G and how and whether it will change our world.
In 5G for Sceptics, the latest in his series of For Sceptics talks, Tim will cover the essentials of this new networking infrastructure so that we can consider its value for creative applications, and its implications for society. How will our world change as 5G is rolled out, and who wants it to change? He will cast a sceptical eye on the mass rollout of densely connected devices that 5G will facilitate, and consider how we can respond creatively to the implications for surveillance, security and our wellbeing as citizens.
Please note Tim previously did this talk as part of the 5G Smart Futures showcase in March 2019.
This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
