The Internet of things is everywhere, from small sensors to Arduino and Raspberry Pis. But there is so much more to the subject and tonight we are organising a scintillating range of speakers on IoT.

We have the Micro:bit expert Carlos Pereira Atencio talking about IoT and the illustrious technologist, Ross Cruickshank, will explain AI, its role and how IBM's Watson can be used in IoT.

Also, there will be a short presentation on setting up a Raspberry Pi
