Your Invitation to CWIC 2022: The Hyperconnected Human
2nd Nov 2022, 8:30am
Connectivity is now a ubiquitous part of our lives, round the clock we are connected; from wearables and smart devices to connected cars, houses and cities, people are ever more ‘plugged in’. CWIC 2022, to be held on Wednesday 2nd November 2022 at The Wellcome Genome Campus, Hinxton, will explore the ‘connected person’ and take a tour around their connected environment.
CWIC will explore the societal impact of being ever more connected. How are we teaching our kids about technology? Is it through the tech itself, are they learning about the world and social values through Alexa, Google and TikTok? Are there marginalised groups being left out (such as the elderly) or does this uber-connectivity allow for more inclusion?
But, with our lives relying so heavily on connectivity, what happens if we pull the plug, and the network goes down? And does all this connectivity come with increased vulnerability with cyberspace and data security. Who controls all this connectivity and how securely?
This year’s sessions will cover:
- Society & Community
- Security, Identity & Privacy
- Living in the Metaverse
- Mobility & Logistics
- Hyperconnected Entertainment
- Health & Wellbeing
