The IET/BCS Turing EngTalk 2018
20 February 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The IET and BCS are delighted to announce that this year’s Turing EngTalk will be delivered by Dr Andy Harter, a distinguished computer scientist, innovator and entrepreneur, responsible – amongst other things – for VNC software; a remote access technology that today is on over a billion devices, on more different kinds of computer than any other application and an official part of the internet.
In his talk Andy will discuss the role of “art” in innovation and technology including not only the aesthetic but also craft, design, skill, invention and intuition and ask if we can do more to appreciate and promote the importance of “art” as a feature on the interdisciplinary landscape. Will the next Da Vinci be an engineer?
This talk is free to attend, open to both members and non-members and includes a showcase exhibition and networking drinks reception, so register online now to avoid missing out!
