effini’s 5th Birthday!

Happy birthday to us – we’re 5!

It’s been a fantastic journey – terrifying, exciting, tiring & inspiring. There’s been highs, and lows, and a lot of middling ground!

Robotics, AI and Edinburgh

Robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) have always been a fascinating field that is often over-shadowed by the image portrayed in popular media. When you say the word ‘robot’, most likely something such as the Terminator will pop into your head, or the more child-friendly Wall-E.

Week Note: 06 Dec 2021

The week started with a full day working with The Datalab in relation to their leadership training sessions. It was through these I first really got to know a number of folk there, when I got involved as an expert advisor on their panels a number of years ago.
