The oil and gas industry is finally embracing digitalisation. But for such a technically advanced industry, it’s also a culturally conservative one. This talk will outline where the industry is on its digital journey, and what prize is being chased.

18:50 - 19.10 Vasilis Kapsalis (Director Deep Learning & HPC)

A full description of this talk will be added soon.

19:10 - 19:30 Matthew Rice (Open Rights Group)

With Brexit comes change. The UK government has confirmed that it will be leaving the Digital Single Market. In doing so, it breaks away from the common set of rules, for good and ill, that the Digital Single Market aims for the 28 Member States. For developers based in Britain, or offering services into Britain, the legal landscape will shift. In particular, cross-border service provision into and out of the UK will be affected. Issues will include compatibility of services, legality of transmitting and processing personal data, and regulatory jurisdiction. IoT developers will have to figure out how to navigate this new legal landscape and its consequences. Open Rights Group have produced a series of briefings as part of its VIRT-EU project, on the implications of Brexit for the Internet of Things. Scotland Director, Matthew Rice will be presenting the key findings of these briefings and discuss recent developments in the Brexit process.
