    “As a society we are now experiencing a tsunami of new technologies,” says Jorge Velázquez, Director of Business Transformation at Spain’s BUPA-Sanitas Hospitals. From stem cell therapies to the bio printing of human tissues, exoskeletons to bionic implants, ‘Big Data’ to AI, a dizzying range of new technologies is coming to the healthcare sector. All these new technologies could help doctors and patients treat illnesses better.

    IoT is one of the key ways of sourcing data about how buildings and facilities are being used. That’s why over the last few years, Mitie, the UK’s largest facilities management company, has embarked on a journey to evolve from a manpower-driven business to a technology-driven business -- with IoT as the key enabler.

    Mitie is one of the largest strategic outsourcing firms in the UK, employing 50,000 across facilities management and professional services. IoT now serves all of the group’s business units, but the group’s energy management and mechanical and electrical maintenance clients have felt the most benefits.

    Currently, there’s a lot of posturing amongst the major car manufacturers, as they jockey for position in the autonomous vehicle chase, with most of them predicting that there will be some form of self-driving vehicle on the roads by the early to mid-2020s - most likely as ride-hailing services (think Uber and Lyft) or commercial transportation (set routes, set times). Similarly, other industry voices chorus that autonomous vehicles are “coming soon,” with everyday people now becoming more accustomed to the idea, too.

    Notwithstanding the optimism, and before we all climb into robotically chauffeured cars or have our online goods delivered by people-less vans and trucks, there are still many hurdles to be overcome - not only from a technological, but also from a business, regulatory and ‘user’ point of view. Trial and error, never-ending learning, infinite software updates and our new-old friend ‘artificial intelligence’ are paving the road that autonomous vehicles will cruise on.

    Quite rightly, people are both excited by and fearful of the prospect of truly autonomous transportation. Positive thoughts relate to the elimination of human error (an autonomous vehicle is unlikely to be pulled over for reckless or drunk driving, accidents due to drowsiness or heart attacks…). But the thought of technology literally with a ‘mind of its own’ driving on our open roads and neighbourhood streets, is also a scary idea.

    In a recent article, I wrote about the amazing customer experiences to be had in airports such as Changi and ways to enable that customer experience. Here, I propose to extend my stopover by looking at what goes on landside, rather than airside, and how one carrier is leading the way in using the latest digital tools to reimagine operations. 

    Just as Changi embodies how airport operators are reworking the customer experience, Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) is a template for how smart use of data, communications and infrastructure can reinvent the back-end processes that enable passengers to move swiftly from point A to B.

    The Internet of Things (IoT) may still be in its relative infancy, but it’s gradually building apace – as more enterprises begin to uncover the power it possesses when looking to harness data.

    From manufacturing to healthcare, or logistics to financial services, more industries are becoming aware of its critical capability to process and convert information into rich, meaningful real-time analytics, in order to do everything from flagging potential issues with infrastructure to tracking demand for services and understanding consumer behaviour.

    IoT adoption shows no signs of slowing down either, as its implementation has proved to have helped many firms stay ahead of the curve and have the correct operational efficiencies in place – all of which can be adapted, and evolved, to successfully provide useful knowledge to operate more efficiently in a challenging economic climate.

    As DevOps Technical Lead at Virgin Atlantic, Martyn Coupland has two primary responsibilities. First, he is one of the subject matter experts for the airline’s Microsoft Azure platform and the subject matter expert for the Azure toolset which enables its DevOps program.

    In addition to the technical legwork, Martyn also provides expertise “around the softer side of DevOps” - in other words, the people and process side of things: “As technology changes, people change and processes change. DevOps will always be here to ensure all three sit together and provide real value,” he explains. “This allows not just technology teams at Virgin Atlantic but other parts of the business to adopt DevOps methodologies.”

    In August 2019, Russian media reports began to emerge that orphans were being brought to summer camps in Lithuania and taught to kill. The catch? The story wasn’t true – it was ‘fake news’. Although summer camps do exist in Lithuania (as they do the world over), the young attendees weren’t being taught warfare techniques.

    Misinformation campaigns have long been used by hostile governments against enemies and competitors, yet in the past few years the problem of ‘fake news’ has grown dramatically in scale. Facilitated by social media, it’s easier than ever to spread lies and confusion online. But concerned citizens are starting to take a stand - and they’re using AI to help.

It’s been a good morning so far, it’s important for us to get across, not just our technology, but the company as a whole and we’re meeting with lots of different people from lots of different verticals so this is key. We’re already talking about about booking a stand for next year."
    Regional Sales Director UK & Ireland, Telit
