Get In: TechCentral at the Party Conferences

Sponsored post.

tc-x-480
With the pace of dramatic change and innovation in the world of technology – from driverless cars to wearable tech – public policy in the UK has lagged behind technological advances. In many respects this is due to the technology industry being more distant from politics in comparison to other public policy concerns like health and transport. Despite Britain having a large and vibrant technologically advanced economy.

Key public policy issues have in the past all enjoyed dedicated zones at the party conferences, with delegates and politicians flocking to hear about the latest advances and discuss hot issues. It’s long overdue that there was such a public forum to bridge the gap between the tech world and the political world. That new forum is TechCentral – a dedicated technology space within the secure zones at Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrat party conferences, which will be attended by thousands of delegates.

It is unsurprising, given the importance of this year’s conferences ahead of next year’s general election, that TechCentral has secured partnerships with Facebook, Microsoft, EE, and TalkTalk. For example Microsoft will be offering sessions about coding and Facebook will be giving social media training for candidates using blazing fast 4G and wi-fi from EE. Afterwards Talk Talk will have you singing the night away with their X-Factor contest. Many other organisations will also be holding events in the TechCentral venue.

480-x-ad

A small number of opportunities for technology related organisations to hold their fringe sessions within TechCentral are still available. For more information about TechCentral, including partnership opportunities, pricing and the current agenda for each party conference, visit TechCentral or for more info email andrew@techcentral.org.uk.

    If you want technology in this country to continue to thrive, keep it far, far away from political stupidity.

    Electric cars never have accidents so no need for expensive (also taxable) insurance.

    If there is an accident then it is the fault of one of those human beings who can pay for the damage.

    one might be forgiven for imagining that the intellectual elite would have registered a glaring similarity. Betwixt acceptance and running of a bug ridden ideological programme, coded in some leader’s fevered brain then subsequently disseminated to followers, and the advent of virtual reality shoot-em down games. If this hasn’t registered and been immediately followed up by testing (through the use of elementary questioning techniques). To discover if an accepted ideology is sound in relation to external reality. Might that suggest politics is the last place to expect to find examples of an intellectual elite?

    Back in 2001 when I was as pleased as punch with my Q-Tek smartphone, I was visiting Britain and was amused that the Labour Party were so pleased with themselves that they had been communicating election message “slogans of the day” to their candidates by pager. “PAGER?”, I thought–“I remember them, just.” The Tories had nothing (maybe telegrams?)
    As late as 2006 I had to renew my passport and I asked the British High Commission in Pretoria if I could download the forms from their website. NO, they told me, that’s too complicated. But they did have a Fax-on-demand service.

    You can tax the profits of a company that utilises robots on a per-robot working hour basis. You could also (if the robots are truly mobile, as one hopes they will be soon, because my lawn needs cutting) ‘tax’ them by making the owner donate the robot’s services (say, cleaning hospital wards 2 days each week).

    This government does not do technology.

    I was part of the 1980-2000 technology advances in the UK. When it was destroyed by the tax changes I went abroad.

    Firstly social media is not technology. It is just a use of technology. It is like saying letter writing and pamphlet creation was technology. The advent of cheap paper and printing is the technology, but the use of it was not.

    The second point is that technology is never the answer. I might have a vested interest in its profits but it should never be used as an excuse for lawless acts. Government is there to protect us from technology.

    The third point is that technology can always be broken. For example driverless cars. We all know humans are fallible and that computers are far worse. What computers can not do is cope with the future. Any form of technology invites subversion. Hacking. Even the advent of the post office required laws to prohibit theft of letters.

    A driverless car going down a road uses an algorithm to determine its braking. Obviously it should brake heavily for a child in the road. Obviously it should not break heavily for a bird flying past.

    So some decision level, and attribute accounting, is needed to determine if the brakes go on.

    Now take a youngster. What would be better than to find that threshold. Will it be a balloon on a stick, or a rock thrown across the road. Could you trigger it with a streamer? What ever it is, it will be such a laugh to find out. I can see whole websites discussing the limits for each car model.

    Then when the first software fixes are sent out would you drive the next day? I do not even download Microsoft fixes when they are first issued. What would you do if a radio report stated that a child was killed by an automated car? Would you take the bus to work that week?

    Technology is never the answer.

    (The answer to cars is to abandon HS2 and build a network of car transporters that replace the motorways. These would be electric “trains” and would allow charging of the cars while on route. If we want to be a leader then aim for the removal of all petrol and diesel cars. Killing off a technology is as good as inventing a new one. How many steam cars do you see on the road these days?)

    “public policy in the UK has lagged behind technological advances.”

    It better had lag behind because the alternate is that politicians know more about technology than the people marketing it. It would be absurd not to lag.

    Government role is to protect the people from the misuse of technology. It has to wait until it is hacked, subverted before it make laws. We do not want politicians to each learn the pit falls of a technology while carrying out government business. For example, if the government did not use memory sticks then we would be a lot safer. They should observe, not take part.

    The use of social media is just social media. It is not technology. First it was painting in caves, then came portable stones, slate and we continued to advance until we have, our pinnacle of achievement, a tablet that you can use a finger to write with.

    Wake up, we are still in the silicon age. There is the neural age to come.

    Picking Winners says:

    At last! A serious post on Guido…even if it was paid for.

    This is indeed the sort of thing our politicians should be focussed on. In the modern age governments do need to get involved in picking winners. Modern fracking emerged directly out of government-funded programmes.

    As a country that punches above its weight in terms of science, technology and manufacturing know-how, we should be doing much more to support the creation of wealth-generating industries.

    One example is energy power storage. The government has made a small contribution to Highview but really that is the sort of technology we ought to be putting on a war footing with development over six months, not six years.

    Here is another example of a British development that has been ignored until recent validation by NASA:

    http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2014-07/31/nasa-validates-impossible-space-drive

    Other examples where we need to focus effort include cheap assembly housing, electric transport, electric roads, 3D printing and indoor farming.

    To be fair the government is doing some things right e.g. supporting Spaceport development. Few people realise how much this country earns every year from space business – we are a world leader in the satellite business (thanks to good ol’ Rupe initially it seems, who based Sky here.

    Sadly though we are sinking a lot our investment potential (some $50billion) in High Speed rail, which looks more and more like a defunct technology – why make a complicated three or more part journey via High Speed Rail, tube, bus, taxi etc, if I can get in my driverless car and be taken door to door (at speeds in excess of 100 MPH on the motorway, because the technology is so safe)? The High Speed rail time saving will be negligible or non-existent and in a small country like the UK the driverless car will win out on convenience completely.

    A E’uropean anti-ballistic missile system would be a worthwhile outcome.

    Most are unaware of the real implications of R’ussia breaking the INF Treaty.

    http://nationalinterest.org/feature/the-inf-treaty-russia%E2%80%99s-road-war-11001

    US it is not so much a problem for, but intermediate R’ussian nuclear ballistic missiles are an existential threat to E’urope – a security concern that the INF was in part meant to remove. Commentators seem reluctant to make that connection.

    Food for thought.

    I think diverless cars should have drinks cabinets in the back, too. Driverless camper vans could be even better.

    If Brussel’s was not quite so close to L’ondon that would not be of such a direct problem to the UK.

    However, the industrial centres further east would be more in the cross-hairs.

    INF transgressions should be stimulating real investment at the E’uropean level. Purchasing US systems would help bridge a gap, but locating of US NMD in E’urope before was one of R’ussia’s legitimate complaints, so US systems may not be politically wise to deploy.

    R’ussia could not raise the same objections to a E’uropean defence.

    Does the government produce anything other than written laws that they can not even keep up to date on their website. A system that does not have properly linked documents.

    Does the government investigate by committees in rooms.

    Does the government travel to other countries to talk with other leaders?

    Does the government meet in one place to make decisions by getting up and walking?

    Government does not do technology. It should not be seen to either. It is best to have traditions, as opposed to be always be classed as backwards.

    The only need for social media is for their own social gratification. I know they do not listen to any individual, so it must be for their image, which makes it an election issue only. It would be like giving training to politicians in how to stand on a soap box or survive a visit to a city centre pub. That is the old social communication avenues.

    R’ussia’s breaking of the INF Treaty was very muted big news.

    INF is a bit arcane but when the terms are looked at and a bit of reasoning is applied it becomes clear why it was pushed for as a replacement for the previous ABM treaty.

    As it stands, other than seeking to reduce nuclear warhead count globally, the only real interest for the US would be to keep its security costs for E’uropean defence down, and also suppress the need for E’uropean’s to develop their own anti-ballistic missile systems, and indeed ballistic missile technology itself.

    Avoiding a ‘missile race’ developing between E’urope and her neighbours would also have been a concern – one which R’ussia is now rendering void with its aggressive military expansion.

    Direct confrontation with R’ussia is best avoided, which is why containing R’ussia is important.

    Limiting the ability of R’ussia to project its force, and neutralizing its offensive capabilities are very valid policy options. E’uropean missile shield certainly fits, and would be an important part of the containment strategy.

    Revamping E’uropes intermediate range deterrent could help R’ussia choose to develop its own missile shield.

    That could coerce the country towards defensive rather than offensive capabilities, which in the long term would be much more in R’ussia’s interest.

    Placing US controlled or produced arms for purpose of defending E’urope from R’ussia’s intermediate threat would be politically hazardous.

    One should note that R’ussia’s approach became more hostile after the US decided to cancel their final phases of NMD in E’urope. That fact is relevant and should not be ignored.

    It should be clear – those are R’ussian H’elicopters operating on R’ussian territory, just across the border from an area where R’ussia has been sending tanks, artillery and other heavy weaponry into U’kraine.

    That is undeniably a R’ussian declaration of their intent.

    Quite an impressive amount of hardware to mobilize. On top of the national mobilization of reserves announced earlier this week – should be concerning.

    Note: WWI started properly after R’ussia mobilized.

    They seem to have sobered up, and M’oscow has reportedly had it’s best troops along that border for a while now.

    What you describe is more reflective of the ‘separatist’ force which R’ussia put in to DNR / LNR.

    R’ussia does lack the numbers to make this an easy win, or to hold captured positions decisively in the face of U’krainian counter attack.

    This war will be messy and long and needs to be contained.

    That’s right. They blamed the British for dying! It was nothing to do with Irgun, who planted the bombs and killed innocent people. It was all the fault of the British! And who was one of the guests at the 60th anniversary celebrations? That’s right, the current PM of Is*ael! Bibi very nice, Bibi very good!

    British and German holidaymakers joint worst, says rest of Europe

    EUROPE has ended the argument about whether British or German holidaymakers are the worst by confirming that they both are.

    Tourist destinations across the continent have confirmed that the ones who won the world wars and the ones who won the World Cups are essentially interchangeable.

    Dimitris Martakis of Greece said: “Both are fat, both are blindingly white, both drink beer until it is seeping out of their eyes and both are idiotically proud of their damp, grey hellholes.

    “When a shaven-headed man with tattooed moobs is screaming at me to pour the shots in his mouth quicker, does it really matter which language he screams in?

    OK. Jim, the Scottish troll (not to be confused with Jimmy) has suddenly gone shy. Shit happens.

    I had posted “Many of the greatest Scots have left their country. Who can blame them? Be honest!”

    He responded with:

    ..and many haven’t.
    Has no-one great ever left England, or Wales?
    Is your inference that no-one great is left here, or that no-one
    great should be?
    
    Or is it that this place is such a shit-hole no-one would want to be?
    
    If you think that living in one of the sunniest places in Britain
    with a tropical climate, white sandy beaches and within the
    most uninhabited areas of Europe, able to fish for atlantic
    salmon or shoot wild venison, is bad, then I pity your
    narrow mindedness.
    
    The fact that we have virtually zero state interference,
    amazing wildlife, stunning scenery, a relaxed way of life,
    great roads, friendly & helpful neighbours, and a lot of wealth,
    whilst being able to tap into employing some of the cleverest
    people in the world, is just a wee additional benefit to the above.
    
    My guess is that you were thinking of the wee strip through
    the middle.
    
    I’ll gie you the tar, if you’ve got the brush! 
    

    I say this:

    You are reading my post out of context.

    I often quote David Hume on here. You may be aware of his Fork…

    My travels have taken me to every inhabited island bar one. I have a great deal of love for the place and its peoples, even for the wee strip through the middle.

    That central belt is the now the metaphorical inheritor of the previous savagery between the MacLeans and the Campbells.

    But as you say there is much beauty in the lochs, the isles and up the bens.

    But there are one or two shortfalls which I am sure you might admit to.

    * I swam for almost a mile in the 25° waters of the Adriatic yesterday. Last time I swam off the Isle of Harris (at Beitearsaig, on the Bagh Huisinis, have you been there?) it was 7° and I did not stay in for long…

    * The overweight stage of so many in Glasgow and surrounds is distressing. No wonder their average age is the lowest in the UK, at just over 60. Tragic.

    * The rain does get on your tits eventually. RLS’s relocation, ultimately to Samoa, is perfectly understandable.

    * The hold that socialism has taken in Scotland is distressing.

    But I believe that the people have a choice and they will exercise this soon.

    I also support the independence of the Shetland Islanders from Scotland and hope you will add your voice to this! :-)

    (3) The Threat from Boko Haram.

    (4) Political Corruption and Bureaucracy.

    (7) North (Islam) and South (Christian) divide.

    (8) Nigeria is overpopulated and Nigerians are uncivilized. They are among the most dishonest, lying, cheating, pretentious, homophobic, closet-racists, aggressive, materialistic, money-obsessive scumbags.

    (9) It is among the top 20 failed states.

This isn’t about killing terrorists or destroying Hamas, this is about obliterating the civilian population and civilian infrastructure. If you support that, that’s your right, I’m just curious to know if you would support any overt admission by Is*ael that full scale genocide is their goal.

    Perhaps it was out of context, but the inference was still there that the place is not worth staying in, depressing, rampant socialism aside, I give you.

    My irk was with the fact that one can find shite or gold in most places, it just depends where you are looking.

    The socialism which exists here is indeed depressing, but it is a throwback to the clan days to which you allude. (never trust a campbell!) The majority of Scots have a pathological desire to percieve wrongdoing, and attempt to right it, no matter how deluded the path. That is a problem, I grant you, but equally it has enabled us Scots to have a disproportionate level of success and invention throughout our more enlightened times, and to a lesser degree modern times.

    We may fuck things up occasionally, but bejeezus we will give hammer and tongs for our beliefs.

    I swam off a sandy beach yesterday, here on the Scottish riviera, and whilst I didn’t have a thermometer strapped to my ankle, it was warm enough to be pleasant, but definately not 25deg. The lack of civilisation and a beautiful sunset made up for the discrepancy in temperature.

    Glasgow fatties are not my concern, I live in the country, am not fat and my missus is 30, Polish and ex swimwear model, so I get to see a nice figure whenever I want. (That really is true, even my pals tell me I’m punching above my weight.)

    The lower life expectancy here is shocking, after 15 years of devolution that is an embarrasment. The waste I see in the NHS is terrible. They scream Westminster doesn’t give us more of our own money back, I reckon they need to be more efficient.

    And yes I’ve been to Harris, sailed past it only 3 weeks ago en-route up the caley canal to Bergen, via Faroe, Orkney and Shetland.

    @Jim

    Inference is in the mind of the beholder

    I have given you a clue of how closely I have known your country and you have granted me something in your first paragraph.

    So perhaps neither of us is as apart as we first thought. Call me an old fool, I don’t mind, really.

    But you say you don’t care about the obese in Glasgow (they are by no means confined to that part BTW.) The real point is that you are paying for these types! And they cost the NHS a disproportionate amount of money. They are, if you will, fed by socialism and look what good it does them!

    As for your Polish missus. Good for you. It is in the mind that you find equivalence though. So your remark about punching above your weight is highly limited. Many women in the UK have a highly predefined disposition to how a man-woman relationship should be. It is judgmental on an incredibly trivial basis. My experience of continental woman is that they trust their instincts much more. If there is any truth in what I say, I blame the British media, especially the ghastly BBC.

    Caley canal? Love it. All those locks which used to be a swine to traverse before they mechanised it, within my memory.

    But this is a political blog, not a travelogue! The hearts and minds business. There is a referendum coming up. Many of the ‘deep-fried Mars-bar brigade’, you will appreciate I am using mental shorthand, are going to take a Braveheart view of events which bears little resemblance to history.

    Think about what it might be for an English person to give the opposite view from what suck folk may expect. It is to provide a rather colder shower than the dip you enjoyed yesterday. You will know that, when you emerge from that cold water, your brain goes extraordinarily clear after twenty minutes or so due to the improvement in blood circulation to the brain that this provides. Far better than any drug. So think about how stance must often be opposite to what is expected in order to elicit a given response…

    Not that it means anything much, I have four Scottish histories on my bookshelfs including the four-volume ‘Edinburgh’ by Duncan. I have the complete set of Johnson’s papers too. I do make attempts to find out what happened in past times, Campbells or McLeans notwithstanding.

    Do not worry! We can still call each other names, whatever happens… :-)

    Dauddery Auld Sod is a term of endearment in ‘these parts’, which belies a little respect.

    I think we are talking at cross purposes, I am severly in the minority in my thinking amongst my Scottish friends and collegues. I hate socialism, and I hate what it has done to my country. Lazy, fat people abound.

    But that doesn’t mean that we are ALL like that. It is the generalisations about Scotland I cannot stomach. Our supposed prediliction towards deep fried mars bars being one example. I am nationalistic, but abbhor nationalism, patriotic but not blinkered.

    Unfortunately, I have attempted to engage with the Braveheart brigade, and they are ‘not for turning’. I think one of the most difficult tasks in the world is convincing a Scotsman to change his or her mind. As I said, it is a trait which can be a help as well as a hinderance, but in wee Eck’s mind he is banking on this fact.

    The moment Glasgow won the commonwealth games bid, I was sure that his plan would be to amplify the differences between nations, at the same time as competing ‘together’. I think he felt it illustrated his point of ‘Independence’. I am acquianted with a couple of people whom were responsible for the bid, and these folks had shallow self-interest in the outcome.

    I have no doubt that the skewed impression of my country is in largepart based on the portrayal by our supposed national broadcaster. Although, I do not wish to see the sort of blinkered Scottish-only reporting which is all that is offered as an alternative.

    You started with the name calling (Scottish Troll) and I am happy to desist.

    And yes, the Caley canal is much better with the mechanical locks!

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
