What are EngTalks?

Featured EngTalk

A day in the life of a smart city

With the recent COP26 held in Glasgow, sustainability and climate adaption are on everyone’s minds. The main outcome of this has been an agreement to strengthen 2030 targets by the end of 2022.

On 21 February 2022, the Turing Talk discussed the role of the Internet of Things, specifically sensor-based technologies, in both providing data to better understand resource usage for optimization and reduction, as well as providing ground truths to track those targets are being met.

The Turing Talk was hosted by Mark Birkin, Programme Director for Urban Analytics - Alan Turing Institute with an Insight Talk from Eneni Bambara-Abban, Robotics Engineer and STEM Communicator.  Prof. Julie A. McCann, Professor of Computer Systems, Imperial College London, delivered the lecture that explored potential solutions and illustrated where the technologies are heading with a future look.
