Wednesday, June 3, 2015

BBC SCIENCE ZONE, Cheltenham

Internet of Things technologies – fitness wristbands and smart watches – are moving health from the hospital to the home. But if your watch, thermostat and games console could manage your well-being, how would you feel about being constantly monitored?

Engineer Ian Craddock and social scientist Madeleine Murtagh delve into the technology and the ethics, and ask if this is a future of health we can live with. This event will be chaired by technology and business writer, Martyn Perks.

Adrian McEwen with cybersecurity experts Sadie Creese and Martyn Ruks explore what you need to know. This event will be chaired by technology and business writer, Martyn Perks.
