Eventbrite - EECS Flagship Seminar Series -Computing for the Future of the Planet - Professor Andrew Hopper

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

A framework for the role of computing in dealing with sustainability of the planet will be presented. The framework has a number of goals: an optimal digital infrastructure, sensing and optimizing the use of resources in the physical world, guaranteeing the performance of indispensable systems, and digital alternatives to physical activities.

Practical industrial examples will be given alongside research goals and societal challenges and dilemmas.

When: Wed 3rd May 2017
Where: Fogg Lecture Theatre

Eventbrite - EECS Flagship Seminar Series -  Laser communication in space, technic and potential - Dr Uwe Sterr  
Title: Laser communication in space, technic and potential

Laser communication will help Earth-observing satellites to transmit large quantities of potentially life-saving data down to Earth in near-real time. Geostationary satellites use optical links to gather low-orbiting satellites’ information at far higher data rates than traditional radio frequency beams.

Laser communication will provide near-realtime data where it matters the most. Disaster relief efforts and the maritime sector will use the system to get information when it counts. The International Space Station will also use laser communication to relay its findings down to Earth.

In the first EECS Flagship Seminar for 2017, Dr Uwe Sterr will be presenting giving his talk, titled: Laser communication in space, technic and potential, where he discusses laser communication and it's key role in providing real-time data transfer from satellites and aircraft infrastructure.

When: Wed 12th April 2017
Where: Graduate Centre - Room GC222
