Today is a big day for the Global Health Network, as we launch the Global Health Research Process Map. This is the first digital toolkit designed to enable researchers anywhere in the world to conduct rigorous global health research. It offers step-by-step guidance for planning successful global health research projects and has the potential to revolutionise the current process, speeding the development of new research and therapies.
We must make sure that we take economic advantage of our discoveries, translating them into new businesses, jobs and economic growth... To keep Britain at the forefront of the international competitiveness league tables, science and technology must remain a backbone of British industry.
In the UK we're just embarrassed of wearing them, which is a very British response. So in theory Glass is great but the reality is that after a while we all got bored. As my youngest said: "What's next Dad?"
It's clear that county councils have some major cultural and structural issues to address to enable them to start taking full advantage of new technologies such as the cloud. Until then, I'm afraid, there will be more tut-tutting and exasperated sighs.
I have no doubt we'll soon see lightweight gimbals marketed at consumers who are tired of shaky footage of their holidays or the kids' sports day. When that day comes, people will be able to have high quality, smooth movement to go with their HD cameras.
The Science Museum in London is among the most popular tourist attractions in the country, but on Monday 14 July it will be opening its doors to some of the biggest arms companies and most oppressive regimes in the world.
Sometimes commercial viability of biomedical inventions or therapeutics exists only in developed countries, even though minor product optimisations could increase access to life-saving medical care in resource-limited settings through cost reduction and functionality additions.
The "right to be forgotten" could be seen as a potential coup for brands and consumers who wish to rid themselves of those old, embarrassing search links once and for all... Instead of being asked in the fine print if we wish to opt out, the marketing industry may need to get used to the idea of politely asking consumers to opt in.
Britain is... one of the least science-intensive economies in the G8. Our news media, despite all its past travails and improvements, still comes under fire for communicating science badly. Funding for science is an incredibly tiny proportion of total public spending.
If ad verification isn't taken seriously, it will be the end of digital advertising as we know it. The industry has to grow and the only way it can is through universal verification that is accepted by the entire ecosystem.
Having been one of the lucky ones to snap up a ticket for the opening night of Monty Python's live comeback show yesterday, I still have Always Look on the Bright Side of Life stuck in my head. But just when I thought that penis-shaped swirly canons expelling a stream of frothy bubbles all over the audience was as Pythonish as you could go, it got even better.
The European Union is still predicting 900,000 IT-related job vacancies across its member states by 2015... We should not think that coding is very difficult to learn: it's not... If tech is to continue to be a powerhouse sector then it requires the right skills, from both our generation and the next.
Delft University of Technology has devised a 'game-changing' new method to convert what are often historic buildings into modern energy-efficient structures without major renovation... the possibility of energy-neutral, sustainable urban living is no longer a dream for millions of people right across the continent.
To the roboticists of course, potential practical applications for such products are endless - including within business, education and security.
Why don't we have the big ideas that the U.S. seems to capitalise upon so instantly? ... Britain's hesitant risk-taking culture, lack of venture capitalist funding availability, and lack of established mentors in the high tech area are what put Britain at a distinct entrepreneurial tech disadvantage.
Many of us have got used to the idea of recycling. It is common for people to recycle their old paper, tins and glass. But we are now taking baby steps into a new world in which science is helping make bolder contributions to a more sustainable environment. Discarded fish skins and urine are clearly just the beginning of a new approach to extreme recycling.
