The Adventures of Art And Science

Christina Smylitopoulos (Associate Professor, Art History)
Art and science are often seen as two very different and disconnected things. In this talk we will explore such questions as How can art improve your science? And Is science a creative endeavour? In particular, we’ll explore how art can inform and inspire the design of technology and how we consider its use in our day to day life.

Decentralizing connectivity. How the phones we all have will connect the world with mesh networks and cryptocurrency

Jason Ernst (CTO Rightmesh, Adjunct Professor University of Guelph)
Half the world is experiencing a digital divide without reliable, fast and affordable access to connectivity. Most of these people have mobile phones and use them only occasionally. These phones can be used to form the entire network using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi direct. People who have Internet access can resell their data into the network. This RightMesh technology is being applied in Canada's north and around the developing
world to redefine what it means to be connected.
