Cambridge Global Challenges


Cambridge Big Data, CamBridgeSense Strategic Research Initiatives and the British Antarctic Survey are holding a networking day to explore the current state-of-the art in the interlinking fields of robotics, sensors and big data, challenges for the future, and to spark potential collaborations by bringing together people with a range of interests and expertise.

CamBridgeSense and Cambridge Big Data are networks linking hundreds of academics across the University of Cambridge and beyond, as well as companies, to facilitate potential research collaborations. The new Aurora Innovation Centre at British Antarctic Survey has a focus on technologies for extreme environments with a keen interest in robotics, autonomous devices and big data.

The day will include presentations from industry, showcasing Innovate UK projects in these fields; an overview of the new robotics hubs and their visions; industry and academic keynotes setting the scene of current capabilities; and, at the end of the day, a keynote speaker articulating the challenges for the future.

Registration for academic attendees is free; it is also essential, due to the limited spaces available. When registering, applicants should explain (in a sentence or two) how they would benefit from attending.
