CAKE 41: #CyberFest – Innovating In Cyber Security Through Art
Date: Wednesday 8th September
Time: 10am – 11:30am
CAKE 41 will explore the relationship between art and technology, and how this can help to communicate issues such as cyber security.
According to Christies, ‘Art and technology have a complex but meaningful history of working together and influencing one another’. Innovation in one often leads to innovation in the other. How can we develop this relationship further to enhance innovation, improve understanding and help communicate seemingly technical issues, such as cyber security, to a broader audience?
