Computing for the future of the planet

Bakerian Lecture 2017 by Professor Andy Hopper CBE FREng FRS


Digital technology is becoming an indispensable and crucial component of our lives, society, and the physical environment.

A challenge is how to use the power of computing to deal with the problems facing the world. In his talk, Professor Andy Hopper will present a framework for the role of computing in dealing with sustainability of the planet. The framework has a number of goals: an optimal digital infrastructure; sensing and optimising the use of resources in the physical world; guaranteeing the performance of indispensable systems; and digital alternatives to physical activities.

Join us to hear Professor Hopper discuss practical industrial examples alongside research goals and societal challenges and dilemmas.
