Closing the gaps: 5G, immersive and new behaviours in hybrid environments. Digital Catapult London


Please join us at the following event, and reserve your free ticket.

Digital Catapult and the Open Data Institute (ODI) conclude a series of events that delve into the relationship between arts and technology, with an interactive workshop event exploring immersive (virtual, augmented and mixed reality) and future networks technologies (such as 5G and the internet of things).

One of the biggest changes 5G promises is for ultra low latency which could result in major breakthroughs for how technology shapes our lives, from how we consume social media to how we work and play through its speedier networks.

It brings major opportunities for experiential immersive, interactive and virtually augmented content, shifting our perceptions of the boundaries of art and entertainment, and raising questions about the relationships we have with our own bodies in digital space, as well as the built environment.
During the evening participants will hear from and have the opportunity to discuss key questions with specialists including Danny Brown, Artist, designer, programmer, creative technologist, Katriona Beales, Artist, Dr Julie Freeman, Artist and computer scientist / co-director Data as Culture ODI, Manu Luksch, Artist, Open Society Fellow, Antonio Roberts, Artist, curator, creative technologist, Raz Schwarz, Head of Research, Oculus, Dr Jeremy Silver, CEO Digital Catapult and Richard Wright, Artist

The Hybrid Landscapes exhibition is curated and produced by Data as Culture at the ODI.
