About this event

Digital technology (and hence computation) is an indispensable and crucial component of our lives, society and environment. In a world dominated by technology, we all need to be more than just digitally literate. Across science and engineering, computing has moved on from assisting researchers in doing science, to transforming both how science is done and what science is done. In the context of (Welsh and UK) Government science, technology and innovation policy, computer scientists (of all flavours) have a significant role to play. Dr Tom Crick will ground this hypothesis by describing his research interests at the hardware/software interface, his broader work in education and science policy, and then finishing by presenting a vision for a Digital Wales underpinned by science and technology innovation.


 Lecture starts at 7.00pm. 
Refreshments from 6.30pm and after the lecture.

Speaker: Dr Tom Crick, Senior Lecturer in Computer Science, Cardiff Metropolitan University.
