To commemorate International Women’s Day and the theme for 2023 of #embraceequality, Dr Helen Southall from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Chester will talk about some of the female inventors, scientists and mathematicians involved in key technologies used by our mobile phones; Bluetooth, GPS, and the programmable electronic computers that make it all possible.

It’s tempting to take all this for granted, but a huge amount of work and some inspired ideas went into the development of these technologies. Some of the people who did that work are famous, but many aren’t, often because they had to keep their work secret, or because of where or when they lived.
