  • We will be meeting at 57North Hacklab to bring together like minded people, discuss digital freedoms and explore the use of cryptographic tools.

They may be designing a new product, discussing a marketing strategy, or planning a hostile business takeover. Or they may be living in a country that does not respect the rights of privacy of its citizens. They may be doing something that they feel shouldn't be illegal, but is.

    Talk 1 SmartRural - The journey and anatomy of a data point.

    You’ve heard about “Farm to Fork”, but what about “Farm to Server and back Again”? How do we gather new actionable data and add value to the rural ecosystem?

    SmartRural is establishing a user owned cooperative LPWAN to be deployed across rural Scotland. The aim of this is to bring digital connectivity and innovation to every corner of Scotland, uniquely servicing the Scottish Government’s Digital Strategy objective of “Outside In”. This new infrastructure will facilitate an explosion in LPWAN IoT with a accompanying tsunami of data, but what does this new data actually look like, how will it arrive, how can we access it and what can we do with it?

    Talk 1 Alan Russell - “Visualising the ownership of Scottish football”
