The Future Of Voice: Part 1
Voice technologies are everywhere. You can’t avoid seeing someone using voice for “something”, whether that be a five year old playing their favourite music on an Echo, or an adult in a pub settling a debate via smartphone. We decided to put together a series of blog posts commenting on the future of voice technology. […]
Blackstone + Cloudreach – a year on

Google Cloud Platform – Momentum gathers
It’s fair to say that the cloud IaaS/PaaS world has thus far been dominated by AWS, and Microsoft are now recognised by most as the second “horse in the race” with their ever evolving Azure offering. I spent some time down at the Excel centre in London this past week at the Google Cloud Next […]
