Digital Shoreditch: from the Internet of Things to cyber security
12th May 2015
The internet is rapidly moving from mainly connecting humans to connecting machines through the Internet of Things (IoT). This has the potential to support many new and exciting projects that use the internet for good and we want to play a part in defining and shaping it.
We have a London office, in Rivington Street, and we’re building on our roots as the .UK domain name registry, exploring a wide range of technologies based on understanding our data and the future internet. Right now we’re involved in lots of spaces where we think our IoT technologies might be relevant, ranging from smart cities and cyber security to TV white space (TVWS).
We’ve been pioneering our TVWS technology to power the Oxford Flood Network, providing wireless connectivity for the flood sensors and we see great potential in the use of TVWS in both smart cities and connecting remote rural areas.
You can find out more about us at our session this Wednesday where we’ll be talking about Solving real-world problems with connected devices, from flooding to dementia. We’ll be on the panel at the What’s Next in Civil Tech too.
You can also catch up with us on Friday, where our Head of IT Security, Cath Goulding, is presenting her ten minute, top tips talk on How Not To Get Hacked – not to be missed!
