Public Lecture Series

Over three Thursdays from November 2, Massey researchers will be holding interactive lectures telling us about the world of technology and how it will help us. It's a great chance to better understand what's happening.

Brought to you by TNE, the Tech Simple Lecture Series is a FREE event held from 5.15pm at the Palmerston North City Library. It will cover everything from GPS, the homes of the future controlled by our phones and microscopic robots that may someday heal us. Sessions will last roughly 45 minutes and include a Q + A session at the end where people can ask questions.

The fridge that orders when supplies run low
Prof. Hans Guesgen on November 16 discusses the home of the future and the often-confusing term called the Internet of things which underpins it. How a home may be able to take care of us in our own age.

Repairing our bodies without surgery
Dr. Ebu Avci on November 30 will discuss the tiny robots which may someday be put in our bodies to solve our biggest biological problems.

No registrations required, just turn up on the night.
Starts at 5.15pm with tea.
At Palmerston North City Library.

Talks done:

How your phone knows where you are
On November 2, the series will begin with Dr. Faraz Hasan. Ever wondered how your phone knows where you are or even when it can't seem to find you? This talk looks at the building blocks of a Global Positioning System (GPS) and uncovers the principles and techniques used.
