RTÉ Radio 1 DAVIS NOW LECTURES: ‘Bricks, Mortar and Data: Technology and the Home of the Future’

Tune into RTÉ Radio One on Sunday 19 January , 6pm for the RTÉ DAVIS NOW LECTURES: Making Home radio lecture by Professor Linda Doyle recorded at Workhouse Union last summer.

‘Bricks, Mortar and Data: Technology and the Home of the Future’ is presented by Professor Linda Doyle, Vice President Dean of Research and Professor of Engineering and the Arts, Trinity College, Dublin

For this lecture, Linda Doyle brings her technological research and knowledge of the wireless world to imagine a house of the future, a so-called ‘smart home’. Or is it a house of today? Describing the different interventions already in the home, and the pieces of technology that might potentially fill the home, Doyle raises issues around responsibility and around the ethics of technology. She argues that these present and near-future changes, transforming our homes into ‘bricks, mortar and data’, might be the most radical ever experienced. How then, must we respond?

RTÉ DAVIS NOW LECTURES: Making Home is a series by consulting editor and host Ellen Rowley and RTÉ Radio series producer Clíodhna Ní Anluain.

Contributors include Etaoin Holahan of Fennelly’s of Callan; Rosie Lynch, Workhouse Union;  KCAT Studio artist Brianna Hurley and Patrick Lydon, Camphill Callan/Nimble Spaces
