When the Sky is not the Limit: Digitising Conservative Industries

Brought to you by CW (Cambridge Wireless)

CW is delighted to support a series of webinars entitled “The digital (dis)comfort zone” from the Trust & Technology Initiative, based at The University of Cambridge. The next session will explore digitising conservative industries.

Registration for this event is now closed.

About the event

How is the availability and use of data transforming different industries? The webinar takes a closer look at several sectors known for high regulatory hurdles and sometimes conservative mindsets, among them Aviation and Construction.

We will explore the challenging properties of data; heterogeneity, accessibility, availability etc in general as well as hear about concrete examples of data-driven innovation and shifting attitudes towards our increasingly data-driven environment.

The event will be run as Zoom Meetings, with Q&A and breakout rooms, without recording. Attendance is free. 
Please register your interest on Zoom; this will help us with running the virtual event.

Your sign-up details are collected for the purpose of the webinar only and will not be made available to third parties, in accordance with GDPR principles. You will receive a joining link and password automatically after registration.

The Meetings are planned as a way to help you connect with other people who share your same interest in the digital world, so just bring a glass of any drink you like and enjoy an informative as well as refreshing digital happy hour (with an optional further networking extension). 

This webinar is delivered by Trust and Technology Initiative at The University of Cambridge, and supported by:
