Inside the United Kingdom's Tech The Current State and Future of Artificial 8 months ago   28:27

In this episode of Hello World, Bloomberg’s Ashlee Vance heads to England to find out how the country is fighting to inject new life into its technology industry. The trip starts out in Bletchley Park. From there, it’s off to Cambridge, the heart of England’s technology scene. Vance hangs out with learned cows and artificial intelligence whizzes, bikes past Newton’s famed apple tree (at least a reasonable replica of it), and goes punting with the inventor of the Raspberry Pi computer. From Cambridge, it’s off to the Cotswolds and the headquarters of Dyson to see its latest creations. And then on to London to check out some startups and whine about Brexit while drinking the world’s most exotic cocktails at the Langham Hotel.

Hello World is a Webby and Emmy-nominated video series from Bloomberg that invites the viewer to come on a journey across the globe to find the inventors, scientists and technologists shaping our future. Join journalist and best-selling author Ashlee Vance on a quest to find the freshest, weirdest tech creations and the beautiful freaks behind them.

Talking and bragging about the sole British undisputed tech titan ARM, the colosal chip designer that have no competitor at the global scale.
Yet as usual as the British thing....they sell it for a few the Japanese.
Tell me how many British valuable company that still in British hands...?
Not much left isn't it...?
Valuable or not they just sell everything that worth a penny or a buck.
I don't know for how long McLaren and Dyson's shareholders can stand for the lure of a few dollars that offered to them to let go off their hard built company...

Even better to scare off burglars than turning on lights: the sound of a gun cocking or its slide pulled and released.

It is not your grandfather's tech. What passes for tech today are massive time wasters. Advancing technology allows humans to devote more time to progressively more trivial activities.
A notable tech product that came out of the UK? Erm, the internet?

UK is 5th biggest economy in the world. We're not doing that badly. 😂😂😂

It's not really crazy that less people are applying to study computer science. Nowadays it's quite easy to learn most of computing at home and online from MOOCs so unless you are interested in a regulated profession like Medicine most things can be learnt at home this days.

I hate Americans that can’t tell the difference between England, Britain, Great Britain and United Kingdom.

What a threadbare, meagre display of British tech. Possibly all of 32 seconds of relevant content. As if it was intentionally empty of relevance.

Fire radiation at all angles at the skull to kill the cancer. 5G creates brain tumours that exact same way.

If I owned big pharma I could be getting rich...
Amstrad was British?
Sinclair was British?
