Action AI's John Taylor is joined by Hayley Freedman of CHARGit.
Yeah yeah, Elon Musk has sent some bits and bobs up into space. Big bloody whop. In the words of Shania Twain – ‘that don’t impress me much’. The best thing to happen to the tech world this week is this podcast.
Sue, Sarah and Paul had plenty to get their heads around this week – it all starts with a chit chat about live chat.
Experience of online chat can vary for lots of people. Some will be a robot that won’t understand you, others will be humans that will take an age to reply to you (probably because they have so many on-the-go) and then you’ll have some really good ones. If it’s the latter – it’s probably down to John Taylor’s company Action AI. They’ve been using some clever software to improve customer experience.
Our other guest is solving one of the most frustrating issues in this modern technological age. Charging. Don’t you hate it when you’ve got 2% left on your commute home but you’ve got no wires to juice up. Enter CHARGit – Hayley Freedman explains how she got into the wireless charging industry.
On this week's podcast, we meet Alina Bezuglova from TLA Russia and Tom Lipinski & Danya Kivell of Q-Bot
If you’re still not over the stress of filling out a rushed last-minute tax return to HMRC, we’ve got a podcast that might calm things down.
After all, who doesn’t love a bit of tech debate? Sue, Sarah and Russ were delighted to get talking with this week’s guests.
First up, we talked about Russia.
What do you think of when you think of Russia? Red Square, The Kremlin, Vladimir Putin? What about all of the amazing technology coming out of the huge state? We were delighted to be joined by Alina Bezuglova – she is co-founder of the TLA Russia Group and also Rutech Ventures. She has her finger on the pulse of Russian technology.
From Eurasia, we flew back home and burrowed into the nooks and crannies of UK houses for our next guest. We were delighted to be joined by two of the team at Q-Bot – they provide a layer of insulation in the hardest-to-reach places with their clever technology. Tom Lipinski tells us how a passion for architecture turned into the creation of this company and Danya Kivell tells us how she’s the brains behind the work itself as Mechatronic Design Engineer.
Tom Gere who heads up the TLA VR and AR working group is joined by Taff Morgan from The Open University
If you were a latecomer to the Bitcoin craze, you’ll probably be quite glad that this is a free podcast. While you count losses, the next hour might give you some good advice on where to invest next time.
Sue Nelson and Russ Shaw had some extremely interesting topics to discuss on this week’s show – Space & VR anybody?
To start with we chatted to Thomas Gere from Realities Centre, who is also head of the TLA VR & AR working group. Anything that he doesn’t know about VR or AR, isn’t worth knowing!
From a virtual world, to out of this world and into Space, Sue recently met Taff Morgan at an event. Taff works for the Open University in the Physical Science department – we talked about the future of Space travel, among many other exciting and futuristic things.
Paul Miller from Bethnal Green ventures talks 'tech for good'
The temperature is cold and the skies are grey – if you ever needed something to blow the January blues away, we have it here and now for you. How about a bit of brand new tech to get you in the mood?
With all the gloom, it took a bit of coaxing to get Sue Nelson and Paul Armstrong out of their warms homes and into the presenters’ chairs at TechTalk HQ – but as soon as they heard who our guest was, they were ready and raring to go.
Paul Miller is a bit of a star on the London tech scene and is the CEO of Bethnal Green Ventures. They help talented teams launch and scale “tech for good ventures”, which are Tech companies with projects that will significantly improve millions of lives.
Over the course of this episode, Paul talks a little about some of the brilliant companies that he has helped – some that you’ll have definitely heard of and others that are ones to watch for the future.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from TechTalk - we've had a great 2017 and we have some brilliant highlights for you to listen back to.
It was been all change this year as we moved into a new studio overlooking London from Euston Tower and welcomed a new high-profile presenting team.
Sue Nelson, Sarah Luxford, Paul Armstrong and Russ Shaw have put their heads together to put together an hour of some of our favourite interviews. One hour won't be enough, so we'll have some more next week.
Struggling for motivation? Of course you are! It’s time to clock off for the festive period and we want you driving home for Christmas with Sue Nelson and Paul Armstrong, not Chris Rea.
For this last episode before Christmas we had Andre Kay coming to town, not on an open sleigh but rather the London-Midlands service into Euston station.
Andre is the CEO of Voyager Blue and he is decking your wallets with cards of protection. Credit card crime is becoming easier with modern technology, but Andre’s team are creating card blockers and other tools to ensure that you enjoy the most wonderful time of the year.
Also on the show, it’ll be jingle bells to your ears if you’re looking for a job in the technology sector because Sue has also recently caught up the team at Global Resourcing.
Happy Christmas to all of our followers – next week we’ll be hearing our highlights from 2017 in a special show.
