As part of Local Enterprise Week 2018, The Mill and the Local Enterprise Office Louth are delighted to invite you to the upcoming Refresh Boyne talk in The Mill Enterprise Hub.

As Managing Director of eir Television and eir Sport, Glen’s responsibilities include the strategic, operational and commercial direction of the eir Television platform, channels and apps. Prior to joining eir, Glen was Managing Director of RTE Television from 2010 -2016 where he was responsible for the commercial, editorial, operational and strategic direction of all of RTE’s Television channels. He was a member of the RTE Executive Board and was President of the EBU Television committee which represents the interests of over 70 public service television channels across Europe and North Africa.

Traditional TV has changed dramatically in the last 5 years, with increased use of the internet and social media. Increased competition may see Technology giants such as Amazon, Netflix and Facebook all weighing up the possibilities of getting involved in Premiership football. Amazon have already netted the rights to show 37 ATP tennis tournaments in the UK and Ireland, with Facebook beginning to broadcast Champions League matches thanks to an agreement with Fox Sports. Amazon Prime is now livestreaming NFL games. A recent report revealed that the average U.S. Wi-Fi–enabled household streams an average of one hour and 40 minutes of Netflix content directly to their television on a daily basis. In August 2017, the Social media giant Facebook made a move into dedicated video, pitting it against YouTube and TV networks. Facebook Watch will be personalised so that users can discover new shows, based on what their friends are watching, and viewers will also be able to see comments and connect with friends and dedicated groups for shows.

Refresh Boyne and The Mill Enterprise Hub are delighted to have Glen speak on the future of TV and how technology will affect our viewing habits, and access to sports.

As part of the M1 Payments Corridor initiative, The Mill and partners has been working with local teenagers on a Digital Payments Dojo for the past year. It is a fun and exciting project relating to payments and payments technology that allows the group to develop their skills in Coding, Project management, and Digital communication (graphics, video & social media).

Impacts to date include:

– Development of Digital Payments Info website, http://bit.ly/DigitalPaymentsInfo

– Fortnightly meetings where teenagers work on projects

– Visit to MasterCard Centre of Excellence

– Presentation at Paypal on Blockchain as part of Louth LEO Enterprise week in March 2017

The next stage is to create and develop an App related to digital payments. However, we need additional support from mentors to realise this ambition. The Dojo-ers have the raw talent, but need some assistance from experienced app developers.

The Dojo-ers will make a short presentation outlining their achievements to date, and what they plan to achieve in coming year. Please register to attend, and find out more about becoming a mentor: http://bit.ly/2BPkrGT.

The second half of the session will include a facilitated workshop amongst Dojo-ers and attendees on how we want the Dojo to develop, and a look at some of the technical opportunities of developing a Payments App.

M1 Payments Corridor is a key part of the Government’s NorthEast Action Plan for Jobs which proposes the creation of a ‘digital payments hub’ along the M1 economic corridor with the potential to create hundreds of sustainable new jobs. It is an industry grouping of ePayments / Fintech companies, and allied stakeholders (IDA, EI, DCU, DKIT, Louth Economic Forum), promoted by The Mill, that serves the wider geographic M1 corridor in a Fintech vertical known as ePayments. Industry members of the M1 Steering Group include Vesta, PayPal, State Street, Aphix Software, Yapstone, and Coca-Cola International Services.

Bitcoin recently surged past $7,000 to hit a new record high. Why exactly are bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies on the rise? How secure are they?

It has been a year of unprecedented growth for the largely unregulated market, with dozens of new currencies appearing every month in “Initial Coin Offerings” or ICOs. There have been at least three dozen heists of cryptocurrency exchanges since 2011. More than 980,000 bitcoins have been stolen, which today would be worth about $4bn.

Refresh Boyne and the M1 Payments Corridor are delighted to welcome Jack Nagle to discuss the growth of cryptocurrencies, explain what exactly they are, and look at some of the potential security issues.

This will be an opportunity for informed debate on the merits and risks of cryptocurrency, and some prediction on it’ future.

 

Jack Nagle is Head of Business Development at DCU’s Irish Centre for Cloud Computing and Commerce (IC4). A thirty year veteran of the IT Industry, with over 20 years in the area of Security and Compliance in a career that has spanned start-ups, consulting for the European Commission, implementation of major international projects, and positions with companies as varied as Baltimore Technologies, Cybertrust, McAfee and Verizon.

The Irish Centre for Cloud Computing and Commerce (IC4) is multi-institutional research centre located at Dublin City University. The vision for the Cloud Computing Technology Centre is to be an internationally recognised industry-led centre of excellence for innovation and applied research, that accelerates the development and adoption of Cloud technology and show cases Ireland’s capabilities in this field.

TEDxDrogheda 2017: “Private Lives”

TEDxDrogheda is back! The second TEDx event in the North-East of Ireland has been officially launched on Monday, 28th August 2017 under the title “Private Lives”. The event will be hosted in the Droichead Arts Centre on 3rd November 2017 and will provide a broad interpretation of the theme “Identity”, with presentations by artists, social activists, entrepreneurs, historians, and academics from our local community.  A call out for speakers is currently taking place on TEDxDrogheda website: http://tedxdrogheda.com/ , deadline for submissions – 30th September 2017.

The organizing committee consists of Anna Kurtisa – administrator at The Mill Enterprise Hub, Orlaith Carmody – former RTE news reporter and Managing Director of Gavin Duffy and Associates, Seán Ó Cearrúlláin – director of Sky High Productions, Barry James – speaker of TEDxDrogheda 2016.

“We are interested in asking whether the concept of Identity is related to personality or whether it involves something much broader such as our health, creativity, social equality, or environment”, said Orlaith Carmody, the Managing Director of Mediatraining.ie. “TEDxDrogheda represents technology, the arts, education, youth programmes, business and not-for-profit organisations.  Our common aim is to reach a diverse cross-section of our community and ensure a truly inspirational set of topics and talks”, said Graham O’Rourke.

Because TEDx events are intentionally small, designed to be intimate events that provoke discussion and promote connection, the seating at TEDxDrogheda will be limited to 100. “We are seeking an audience representing the broadest possible range of the community, including local residents and other members of the general public who are inspired by ideas and interested in connecting with others who share the same passion for knowledge”, concluded Anna Kurtisa.

Tickets will go on sale this month, priced at €30 for a Standard Ticket, and €15 for a Concession Ticket (students, unemployed, and senior members 65+).

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TED Talks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

About TED

TED is a nonprofit organization devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. Started as a conference in California 1984, TED has grown to support those world-changing ideas with many initiatives.

At a TED conference, the world’s leading thinkers and doers are asked to give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes or less. TED speakers have included Roger Ebert, Sheryl Sandberg, Bill Gates, Elizabeth Gilbert, Benoit Mandelbrot, Philippe Starck, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Brian Greene, Isabel Allende and former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

On TED.com, talks from TED conferences are shared with the world for free as TED Talks videos. A new TED Talk is posted every weekday. Through the Open Translation Project, TED Talks are subtitled by volunteers worldwide. Through our distribution networks, TED Talks are shared on TV, radio, Netflix and many websites.

The TEDx initiative grants free licenses to people around the world to organize TED-style events in their communities with TED Talks and live speakers. Selected talks from these events are also turned into TED Talks videos.

The annual TED Prize grants $1 million to an exceptional individual with a wish to change the world. The TED Fellows program helps world-changing innovators from around the globe to become part of the TED community and, with its help, amplify the impact of their remarkable projects and activities. TED-Ed creates short video lessons by pairing master teachers with animators, for use in classroom instruction or independent learning.
