Local Digital Thought Leaders (evening event): The Internet of Things & Local Public Services

8 Jun 2015 @ 5:45 pm - 8:30 pm

Event Navigation

DCLG’s Local Digital Campaign invites you to attend our flagship Local Digital Futures Thought Leaders briefing on the Internet of Things.

Anything with a smart chip in it can now be connected to head office via the internet – enabling sensors to send data back to HQ, or machines to receive instructions remotely. Devices can include traffic sensors, smart building controls, heart monitors, lampposts and, yes, fridges in politicians’ kitchens.

The sheer scale, availability and rapidly falling cost of this technology offers new innovation opportunities to local public service providers.

You can register for this event or register further below by selecting a ticket type.

Speakers on the 8th June include:

  • Jonny Voon, Lead Technologist, IoT, Innovate UK
  • Debbie Johnson, Head of ICT Business Development, Kent County Council
  • Jos Creese, President, BCS and former CIO, Hampshire County Council
  • Sarah Gonsalves, Head of Performance and Information, Milton Keynes

The briefing will be followed by drinks and networking.

We will also be unveiling the results of our research ‘What does the Internet of Things mean to your council?’ To add your thoughts fill in our quick survey click here:
