30/03/17 CWIC Starter: Healthcare - Cambridge
Healthcare is a growing market that is moving away from the traditional manufacturers and is seeing a wealth of innovation from young entrepreneurs and SMEs. However to these new entrants the market can be overwhelming with acronyms, market led phrases and a language barrier between the technical and clinical stakeholders.

06/04/17 'How the crime business grew out of recession' Security SIG event - Cambridge
National statistics show a fall in surveyed crime to a third of the peak value over 20 years. Under this recessionary pressure criminal businesses have reacted with a strategy of consolidation and innovation. Leveraging early stage investments from international governments, cyber-attack has returned the crime industry to growth. Regulators, police and commercial companies have yet to mount an effective defence to this disruptive approach. In a half-day conference we will show clear opportunities for new business and good governance that emerge from a strategic understanding of crime as a service. Confirmed speakers include Dave Palmer of Darktrace

09/05/17 'State of the Nation - Use cases for Public Safety' Mobile Broadband Event - Cambridge
Commercial cellular networks have been driven by the needs of consumer and business users. The exceptional success of cellular has led to excellent economies of scale and constant rapid innovation. This environment has produced advanced standards such as LTE that provide multi-megabit per second data rates and multimedia capabilities, as well as traditional voice and messaging services. As mobile networks evolve to include promises such as network slicing, how will the networks adapt to dedicated services for critical applications such as connected car and public safety? Speakers include Peter Hudson of Sepura PLC and Nils Lofmark of Mason Advisory.
11/05/17 Artificial Intelligence & Mobility– the business implications
Artificial Intelligence (AI), or cognitive computing, is changing the world – so we are told. The level of media interest has never been higher. Widespread and radical transformation of society, jobs, and all aspects of business are almost de rigour in any forecast. Many smaller 'AI' businesses have scaled rapidly or been swallowed up through acquisition, large corporates are investing heavily in AI research. Cambridge is a hot bed of innovation in AI. But within society generally, and even within the engineering community, the understanding of AI technologies can be low – not helped by the 'buzz word bingo' now associated with the topic.

07/06/17 CW International Conference 2017 - Connecting Generations
The theme of this years’ conference is ‘Connecting Generations’. Each generation, from post-millennials to baby boomers and beyond, is adopting and driving the development of wireless applications in their own way. Can new generations of technology that we foresee meet these dynamics or are different approaches needed now?
13/06/17 'Broadcasting New Media - is 5G a solution or a diversion?' Digital Delivery and Content SIG
The broadcast industry’s business models and the way we consume content are evolving rapidly. Key developments include the availability to consumers of high quality mobile devices and TV screens, the evolution of video standards (migration to HD and the emergence of UHD 4K), the proliferation of internet protocol (IP), over-the-top (OTT) TV services and more recently the debut of the ‘IP Studio’ in production. These factors all create significant additional traffic and service requirements that could have serious implications for the satisfactory working of all types of fixed and mobile networks.
