Polina Bayvel asks the public to take a closer look at our illusion of infinite Internet capacity
UNLOC director, Prof. Polina Bayvel engages the wider UCL and general public audience in the incredible story of several generations of scientists and engineers who work tirelessly to ensure the core global optical network continues to expand to meet staggering demands for bandwidth and speed. But are we reaching a point where our illusion of infinite capacity breaks into the wall of fundamental physical laws? How do UNLOC and other groups around the world keep pushing the capacity limits further? Watch Prof. Polina Bayvel at the 2016 spring edition of the highly popular UCL Lunch Hour Lectures.
