Speaking at the inaugural May event we have:
Professor Kevin D Jones, Professor of Dependability and Security at City University London – The Internet is a Dangerous Place – could it kill you?
You know enough to explain to your grandpa that he can’t catch a virus from touching his computer, but did you know that there are many different kinds of attack in “cyber-space”? He’ll be explaining how groups from casual criminals through to terrorists can use the internet to do malicious things.
Bryony Frost gets people excited about all kinds of research for a living, she will be telling people how to – Build Your Own Universe (via the medium of LEGO)
You have probably heard parts of the story of the history of the universe. You have almost definitely played with LEGO. This presentation combines the two to mean that no matter what your level of understanding, there is sure to be something you have never seen before. And if not, then you can always build your own universe from scratch.
Recently voted by Newsweek one of 150 women who shake the world, Diana Nammi, will tell us – How to Lose a Revolution
What are the qualities you need to win a revolution – and what has to go wrong to lose one? Diana Nammi fought in the 1979 Iranian revolution, just unfortunately not on the side that ended up in power. She talks about the experiences of Iranian revolution, and factors that come into play when people try to overthrow a government.
All profits from the night will go to Diana’s charity Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation.
