Join us at the Cheltenham Science Festival

Posted on 15/06/2017

For the fourth year running, Computer Science is present at the Cheltenham Science Festival, June 6-11, 2017.

You will find us in the Discovery Zone, where we challenge you with The Magic of Things: clever devices that, because they are controlled by a computer hidden behind a simple interface, without a screen, seem to behave like magic!

This is what is now starting to happen in our daily lives through The Internet of Things. The Internet of Things is not about more screens through which we interact with computers, but rather about computers embedded in devices that can perform apparently impossible tasks, which will reduce the attention required to control technology.

We allow visitors to imagine the coming future where 'undercover' computing will enhance the magic of everyday activities, without requiring human intervention.
