  • TechMunch: The London Motor Show: What’s happening in the motor industry?

    May 9, 2017

    Last week FHF descended on the London Motor Show. As the industry transforms itself from nuts and bolts manufacturing firms, to highly innovative tech companies, tech enthusiast Ben Fletcher and Lara Bunston visited London’s biggest motor show to see what’s going on. British brands are back! The prospect of Brexit put a gloomy cloud over the British automotive industry, but this was far from evident at the London Motor Show. British heritage dominated! Gallantly, a...

  • TechMunch: Communicating complexity

    April 26, 2017

    At the heart of communications for technology lies a persistent requirement to make sense of the complex. Having wrestled with my fair share of impenetrable technologies over the years I thought I would share some techniques that I find handy when translating the impassioned rantings of someone with a doctorate in electronics (or indeed the internal language widely repeated by marketing folk at large tech companies). Break down acronyms: This is a good place to...

  • TechMunch: What’s coming up in (you guessed it!) AI?

    April 19, 2017

    In my first TechMunch I spoke about technological determinism, a bit heavy I must admit so for my next post, I wanted to talk about something a bit easier to digest - the topic of the moment, AI. With less than a month to go until the AI Summit here in (at the time of writing) sunny London, there is plenty going on and with an AI programme recently beating six poker players to win...

  • How to land an authentic apology

    April 13, 2017

    The CEO of United this week released his second statement to the media following worldwide contempt for the way a passenger was man handled and removed from one of its aircraft. With over 36 hours since a video of the man bloodied and being seen dragged across the floor of the airplane went viral, and with almost $1 billion wiped off United's share price the CEO (and presumably those around him) decided they had to come...

  • TechMunch: Is technology driving change or do people drive technology?

    April 10, 2017

    In our inaugural TechMunch post, my colleague, Lakshmi, finished her post by saying “the opportunity for physical interaction, the opportunity to use all of our senses, and just connect as people, has become all the more powerful.” This week, I ask the question is it the technology itself or us driving change through technology? Technological determinism vs social determinism. At its most basic level, technological determinism presumes that a society's technology drives the development of its social structure...

  • What next for food labelling after Brexit?

    April 6, 2017

    The news that the Prime Minister last week officially notified the European Union of the UK’s intention to leave has had a cool reception from figures in the food and drink industry. Prominent voices in the sector have not hesitated to publicly express their concerns as manufacturers face key challenges on multiple fronts, including the reality of operating under tariffs and barriers, and restricted access to a shared labour market – something food producers are...
