CMA Technology in Museums Symposium
Blink, and the digital landscape changes. As new technologies emerge and others become more accessible and enhanced, museums need to step back and consider their options. We may agree that innovation and staying ahead of the curve are cornerstones to survival; but let’s face it, it gets tricky after that. Sometimes technology intended to help tell the story becomes the story. Sometimes, throwing ever more powerful technology at a problem doesn’t always provide the best answer. Are we taking the time we need to ensure we’re investing resources, time and skills in the right areas? Attend the symposium and take some of that time with us.
TIMS 2019 presents some of the latest technology tools and projects developed for the museum sector and beyond. This interactive Symposium features case studies, keynotes and practical demonstrations that will shed light on how technology can be used in many diverse areas of museum practice, helping you to stay right in the flow no matter how swift the current!
Facilitated round table discussions form the cornerstone of the Symposium. Topics will include:
- How do you successfully manage technology?
- Artificial intelligence — AI
- Apps — what is the problem you are trying to solve?
- Immersive technology
Delegates will also have the opportunity to try out new digital tools and devices, as well as discuss today’s challenges and opportunities surrounding the use of technology in museums during Techtails where attendees of TIMS will meet up with tech companies exhibiting the next wave of innovative technology.
