We are delighted to announce details of this seminar, which is hosted in conjunction with the Visually Impaired Computer Society of Ireland (VICS) and which will explore innovations in a range of new and emerging technology.
Technology is connected with everything that we do, whether we’re in work, studying, on the move, or relaxing at home. We are connected to many services and have numerous options when it comes to how we interact with these services.
This seminar aims to discuss some current and emerging technology. There will be lots of time for questions and hands-on with the many gadgets on show on the day.
Saturday 4 March 2017, from 11:00 to 3:30 pm
