13 May Doors 7pm
Event 7:30pm - 9:45pm
The Winning Post, 127-129 Bishopthorpe Road,
York YO23 1NZ
This exciting evening will explore how advances in the digital world are influencing how we live and learn. Head along and hear about the coming '6G' revolution, how augmented reality can help students to learn, what ultrasound can tell us about structures, the creative uses of social spaces, and the now ubiquitous impact of artificial intelligence. 

Seeing the Invisible: The use of ultrasound in ensuring 'health' of structures

Sam Hill (Lecturer in Data Science)
Sam will take you through how we can use sound to assess the integrity of built structures, such as buildings and bridges, and how this is essential in ensuring they are safe to use. Current industrial trends, such as digital transformation and industry 4.0, require new sources of data to feed ever increasingly complex machine learning models and create digital twins of industrial assets. Sensors, and the data they acquire, represent a bridge between the physical and digital worlds. Ultrasound is proving to be a useful sensing mechanism, with the ability to non-destructively sample a whole host of physical properties, thus enabling data-driven decision making and more energy-efficient operation of assets. This talk will explore how ultrasound can be used to 'see' inside structures and fuel the digital revolution.

6G and self-driving vehicles - are we there yet?

Hamidreza Bagheri (Lecturer in Computer Science)
Join Hamid as he explains what '6G' is, before providing an update on current research and industry trends on self-driving cars. The impact of 6G on intelligent transportation systems and what this means for Autonomous Vehicles in the UK will be explored.

The power of AI

Jabir Alshehabi Al-Ani (Lecturer in Data Science)
This talk will cover the use of AI (artificial intelligence) tools in our daily lives and explore its possible future impact - it will affect us all!

Augmented Reality for Teaching and Learning

Warren Fearn (Associate Professor in Design; Virtual and Augmented Reality)
Warren will describe how Augmented Reality can help to bridge the gap between the classroom and remote learning’ using a service design methodology approach. Warren will discuss the EPIC SCIENCE project, which explores the use of augmented reality in the classroom. EPIC SCIENCE has been funded by an EPIC MegaGrant, and is a partnership between EBOR Academy Trust, York St John University, and the Centre for Industry Education Collaboration. It endeavours to understand the impact of using augmented reality as a way of engaging young pupils in primary science.

Using space for expression

Ben Mason (MSc Student)
Ben is interested in the social science of how people use (public) spaces to express themselves. He is currently investigating political graffiti (or "tagging") and plastering (or "bombarding") and the relation between the government's restrictions on protest creates more secretive public rebellion
