Doug has been invited to speak to the Parliamentary & Scientific Committee at their meeting on Smart Buildings on 22nd October. He will attempt to stand up for humanity in the face of technology, with a talk on the consequences of not including building users in the decision making. As usual Doug will try to make as much of his talk as possible available on this blog after the event.
The Parliamentary and Scientific Committee was established 1939 to be a primary focus for scientific and technological issues providing a long-term liaison between Parliamentarians and scientific bodies, science-based industry and the academic world. The main aim is to focus on those issues where science and politics meet, informing Members of both Houses of Parliament by indicating the relevance of scientific and technological developments to matters of public interest and to the development of policy.
