讲座题目: Premier League Football and the Connected Crowd
主讲人：Professor Ian Wakeman
Football stadia present a difficult environment for the deployment of digital services, due to their architectural design and the capacity problems from the numbers of fans. In this talk, I will describe how we built the technology for an ad hoc network amongst the attendees at matches at Brighton and Hove Albion's AMEX stadium, so as to share the available capacity and supply digital services. We describe the protocol and how we engaged our users in service design so that the app was attractive to users.
In the second part of the talk, I will talk through our journey in building a company with the technology, distilling lessons that are transferable to any technology startup and that should in ensuring a sustainable business
