BCS offers a glimpse into the future with premiere of IT in 2057 films

Justin Richards

As the British Computer Society celebrates its 50th year, the BCS IT Management Forum is holding the premiere of its "IT in 2057" films on 11 September at BCS London.

The specially made short films will speculate on and explore how technology will develop over the next 50 years.

The event is designed to allow attendees to dip into the series of short films, each film exploring a theme of IT in 2057. The films will be shown in booths on a rolling basis.

The film themes include:

● What will the world be like in 2057?

● What are the IT challenges in health, transport, education and ­enterprise?

● How will they impact on the individual and society?

The films incorporate short clips from experts talking about aspects of IT in 2057, connected via a ­storyline, video clips and vivid images, with an original soundtrack.

Contributors to the films include internet pioneer Vint Cerf, Rodney Brookes, professor of robotics at MIT, Brian Collins, chief scientist at the Department for Transport, science fiction author Pat Cadigan, and futurologists Ian Pearson, Chris Skinner and Oliver Sparrow.

The event runs on 11 September from 11am to 1pm and then again from 2pm until 4pm. Those wishing to attend will need to pre-book.
