How Software Teams Can Create Happy and Sustainable Human-Computer Relationships - Senior Lecturer for the Department of Computer Science, Andy Davies, gives an introductory talk on a process software teams can use to create digital products users can actually love.

Hidden Figures, a Movie Star, and the Women of Bletchley Park: The Hidden Histories Behind our Mobile Phone Apps - Dr Southall's talk focuses on some of the female inventors, scientists and mathematicians involved in key technologies used by our mobile phones; Bluetooth, GPS, and the programmable electronic computers that make it all possible.  It's tempting to take all this for granted, but a huge amount of work and some inspired ideas went into the development of technologies. Some of the people who did that work are famous, but many aren't, often because they had to keep their work secret, or because of where or when they lived.
