My Smarter Essex, Thu 1 Nov 2018 16:00-19:30, Anglia Ruskin University
We are pleased to announce that we are now taking bookings for our next My Smarter Essex event, which will be held on 1 November 2018 at 4:00-7:30pm, hosted by Chelmsford Science and Engineering Society (CSES) and Anglia Ruskin University (Chelmsford Campus).
The latest in this series of successful events will ask "The Internet: is it Good For Us?" by examining how data, connectivity and artificial intelligence will influence our health, looking particularly at physical health, mental health and 'cyber health'. An exciting new, more interactive format is planned for this session.
See the event page for more details.
We have limited spaces for attendees and places must be booked in advance, please contact us to book. Spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
On 11 April 2018, a small group of CSES members were privileged to receive a guided tour of Lord Rayleigh's laboratory at Terling Place, which remains today largely as it was left in the 1940s.
Our thanks to Professor Edward Davies, University of Cambridge, for offering us this wonderful and rare opportunity.
For those who missed it, we will try to organise another tour in the future, with priority spaces offered to those on the waiting list from April.
