The journey of building a technology company in the UK and how LiFi technology is disrupting the way the world connects with light
LiFi is wireless communication technology, which utilises light to transmit data and position between devices. The term was first introduced by Professor Harald Haas during a 2011 TEDGlobal talk in Edinburgh. In technical terms, LiFi is a visible light communications system that is capable of transmitting data at high speeds over the visible light, ultraviolet, and infrared spectrums. (source: Wikipedia)
Professor Harald Haas, co-founder of Pure LiFi is the speaker in this live streamed public colloquium to celebrate the International Day of Light.
Professor Haas will speak about the journey of building a technology company in the UK starting from a few researchers in a lab to the growing scale-up it is today with more than 130 deployments across more than 24 countries. Professor Haas will speak about the fundamental advantages of LiFi. He will illustrate a vision for LiFi and how this revolutionary light communications technology will transform the way the world connects and how it will enable other disruptive technologies and applications. He will share a few case studies of where LiFi is making a difference for industries and communities today.
The lecture will be presented from the new offices of the Institute of Physics in London. We will live stream the lecture via YouTube.
The lecture will start at 15:15 after some introductions by Professor Paul Hardaker, Chief Executive Officer, Institute of Physics.
The talk will end at 4.15pm followed by questions for 30 minutes after (You can ask questions on twitter they can use #IOPLiFi)
