One of the highlights of the UK technology calendar, the jointly hosted BCS and IET Turing Lecture, takes place over the coming week. Sir Michael Brady FRS FEng, BP Professor of Information Engineering, Keeble College, University of Oxford, will be presenting his lecture “Information Engineering and it’s future”. Summarising his knowledge in the areas of mobile robotics, computer vision, signal processing, medical image analysis and artificial intelligence, Professor Sir Brady will then examine what information engineering really means and the possibilities for the future of the field.

- London – Tuesday the 27th of January 2009

I’m hoping to get along to tomorrows lecture at the IET Head Office, at Savoy Place, so expect a write up to follow.
