It aims to totally immerse the audience in the possibility of the Cyber World and how it is changing our lives. Along with this it will outline a range of emerging technologies which will bring benefits to many areas of our lives including health care and education. With these great benefits, though, there are also threats, and some of these will be presented through a range of practical demonstrations.
