CWIC 2022 - THE HYPERCONNECTED HUMAN

Join us on the 2nd November at Hinxton Hall for an exploration of the ‘connected person’ and their connected environment

CWIC 2022: The Hyperconnected Human

Brought to you by CW (Cambridge Wireless)

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 will explore the 'connected person' and take a tour around their connected environment.

About the event

The CW International Conference (CWIC) is back in person at Hinxton Hall, the Wellcome Genome Campus. CWIC is a must-attend conference for business leaders in the wireless industry. Each year it attracts hundreds of Founders, Directors and C-Suite Executives to network and influence the topical issues of the industry. If you are interested in exhibiting, sponsoring, speaking or attending as a delegate please register your interest.

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 will explore the 'connected person' and take a tour around their connected environment.

Not only are humans externally more connected to their environment, we now have the possibility of robotic body augmentation. The human augmentation market is currently worth almost 90 billion dollars (2020) and is expected to reach over $290billion by 2028 with the largest slice from wearable devices. Can the human brain adapt to controlling an extra robotic digit added to the body by using the 'third thumb'?

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?

And let's not forget the Metaverse! The nebulous term for a group of interoperable technologies that encompasses augmented reality and virtual worlds where people play, work, shop and that live on even when you aren't actively in them. How is the human being changed by or changing this 'metaverse'? Does the metaverse go beyond gaming and by its adoption is it adapting to the 'self' or the 'self' adapting to the metaverse? Will the metaverse be the next tech watershed or is this just a second stab at Second Life?

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?

CWIC 2022 will explore the following areas:

  • Security, Identity & Privacy
  • Digital Mobility & Logistics
  • The Patient of the Future
  • Hyperconnected Entertainment
  • Living in the Metaverse
  • Connected Society

Call for speakers is now open
