What might technology look like in the future? The
Internet of Things is a hot topic that has vast potential
to change the way we live our lives. This is the concept
of connecting any device to the Internet and to each
other. If the traffic is heavy and you are going to be
late for a meeting, what if your car could access your
calendar and notify the other party by text message?

This talk will discuss how the Internet of Things could
shape journalism, from drones reporting on natural
disasters to interactive paper. John will consider a
future internet that exists beyond smartphones,
tablets and laptops.

Free for members & non-members. Booking essential.
