• Basingstoke 5G - Network slicing: A new paradigm for enterprise and 5G networks

    This talk is an external event by Basingstoke 5G Meetup Group ... https://www.meetup.com/Talk5G Network slicing offers a new paradigm for implementing network services by enabling the bundling of connectivity with compute & storage resources into abstract service constructs that meet specific end-user requirements. In so doing, the ‘network slice’ becomes both a new product that offers new monetisation opportunities and a valuable organising tool for the management and operation of networks. In this session Speaker Bio Dr Vassilis Seferidis, CEO and founder of Zeetta Networks, will share their experience in deploying NetOS®, the company’s network virtualisation and slicing orchestration, in Ashton Gate Stadium and 5G Smart Tourism testbed.

  • Win Cafe Sci: “Wireless Communications: a Connected World of People and Things"

    Basingstoke science enthusiasts are invited to this talk by K. Satyanarayana on the subject of "Wireless Communications: Towards a Connected World of People and Things.”. All talks at Winchester Discovery Centre, Jewry Street 7.00 for 7.45 unless otherwise advertised. Licensed bar serving hot drinks, cakes and snacks. No charge to attend. Contributions welcome. Licensed bar available from 7pm. SUMMARY “Wireless Communications: Towards a Connected World of People and Things.” Wireless communication has evolved from pigeon-post to paging, voice calls, text messages, video calls – and now Internet everywhere. It has become the ubiquitous means of socializing, doing business and of entertainment. There are around 5 billion mobile phones in use through which we transmit around 60 terabytes of data every month. And yet, this is just the beginning – the future is even more exciting as we are moving from the internet-of-things to holographic video calls, which can conjure up the image of a person right in the room when we talk to them. However, one of the key issues of this technology, whether we have the capacity to accommodate all these users at a high quality-of-service. An obvious solution to circumvent this problem is to increase the bandwidth used. But we only have a limited bandwidth. In this talk, I shall shed light on how to address this problem. SPEAKER DETAILS K. Satyanarayana (www.satyanarayana.xyz) received his B. Tech. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India, in 2014. During Jul’14-Aug’15, he worked as a research assistant at Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. Currently, Satya is a research scholar in Wireless Communications at the University of Southampton in liaison with InterDigital Europe, London, UK. His research interests include millimeter wave communications, hybrid beamforming, with an emphasis on transceiver algorithms for wireless communication systems and multi-functional MIMO. He has over a dozen publications and a patent.

  • Soton Cafe Sci: "Portsmouth University: The Extreme Environment Laboratory""

    St Denys Community Centre, Main Hall

    Basingstoke Cafe Sci subscribers are invited to the Southampton Cafe Sci talk at the Community Centre in St Denys in Southampton. The talk is being delivered by Dr Clare Eglin from Portsmouth University and is titled "Portsmouth University: The work of the Extreme Environment Laboratory". SUMMARY "Cold water - friend or foe?" - is cold water immersion a dangerous threat that should be avoided or is it beneficial to health and should be encouraged? VENUE: Note: There is a strict policy of no drinks to be brought over from the pub to the community centre. There is level access with no steps. 200 metres from the Adelaide Rd side of St Denys railway station. Previous use of this hall finishes at 20:00 with 15 minutes grace, so the earliest expected start to the science cafe talks would be 20:20. Therefore no point in arriving here before 20:00 , but the foyer would be open , should it be raining. ARRANGEMENTS: For the first talk there will be a charge of 2 pounds per person to cover room hire, this may change in later months, dependent on the numbers of people turning up. With this room-hire structure there is no commercial element in requiring a break, so Q&A will follow immediately after the talk and so the end of the full session should not be much later than the previous structure. The only noise in that venue on Tuesday nights is from a chess club. For any note takers, please bring a small torch with you as the lighting will be all high power fluorescent (prior to talk) and next to nothing (during talk), except spill-over from the projector, light from the foyer and a couple of other low level light sources, assuming the usual problem with fluorescent lamp "dimming", in practise. The format of the evening is usually a talk of 30 to 40 minutes, followed immediately by questions and discussions about the talk. Entry is £2.00 on the door and is open to everyone. Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore and debate the latest ideas in science and technology. Hosted by: Nigel Cooke, Southampton Cafe Scientifique Organiser

  • Winchester Skeptics: "Christmas Special – How to be a Psychic Conman"

    The Winchester Discovery Centre

    Basingstoke Cafe Sci subscribers are invited to the talk hosted by Winchester Skeptics In The Pub. Tonight is the Christmas Special titled “How to be a Psychic Conman” and is hosted by the award winning magician Ash Pryce. Winchester Skeptics hosts a guest speaker on the last Thursday of every month. They provide an opportunity for people who are interested in science, skepticism, rationalism and critical thinking to socialise and discuss matters of interest. WHAT'S THE EVENING ABOUT? Roll up! Roll up! Roll up! Gather ye round the travelling caravan, as Snake Oil Salesman Ash Pryce demonstrates the miraculous curative abilities of psychic surgery taught him by a wise man in the Philippines (or a magicians’ tool book, whichever sounds more wondrous). See with amazement the telekinetic forces at work as you learn how to move objects with your mind, psychically manipulate your finest silverware and read the minds of your peers. Or maybe, it’s all just a trick? The show will involve demonstrations and explanations of telekinesis tricks, metal bending, psychic surgery and remote viewing as well as look at government funded research into psychic phenomena, and the shoddy protocols that allowed “psychics” to beat the legendary Zener card experiments in the 1930s. And if that wasn’t enough, there will be numerous on-stage demonstrations of mentalism. Warning to those on the front row… there will be blood! THE SPEAKER: Stagetime Promotions Magician of the Year 2017, and Edinburgh Horror Festival Sell out performer 2016 and 2017, Ash Pryce brings his crowd-pleasing mix of paranormal illusions, comedy and entertainment to the UK as part of a summer tour of 2018. Find Ash on most social media as “Psychic Conman” and check out his Website THE VENUE: Tonight the suggested donation on the door is £3 for entry into a book raffle. The Licensed front cafe bar at the Winchester Discovery Centre area will be open from 7.00pm. The talks for Winchester Skeptics in the Pub start at 7.30pm in the main theatre. SKEPTICS IN THE CURRY HOUSE ... After the show, there is a group of Skeptics who go to the nearby Gurkha Inn for a late night curry. Everyone is welcome to join in if there is space ... it is first come, first served on spaces. This event is hosted by the Winchester Skeptics in the Pub
