Identifying policy issues applicable to the information technology sector and providing guidance to IET members, government and the public.
The IT Policy Panel identifies and advises on policy issues in the field of information technology. It provides expert input to IET submissions to government and parliament. It also provides guidance to the IET across all relevant professional activities including IET strategy formulation.
The panel's composition is drawn from senior members of the IET and influential representatives of the IT profession, drawn from the public, private and research sectors and covering ICT, security and computing.
It is one of fourteen policy panels established by the IET policy department.
2012 is a very special year – marking 100 years since the birth of Alan Turing.
To celebrate this special year, IET worked with the BCS to deliver the IET/BCS Turing Lecture 2012.
The lecture speaker, Professor Ray Dolan, Director of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, UCL at the IET/BCS Turing Lecture 2012 took to the stage to discuss the challenges Turing faced in relation to the Enigma, exploring Turing’s strongly Bayesian problem solving approaches and looking at the similarities with the problems the brain faces in making sense of its environment.
