How data science will change the way banks relate to people

By Tatiana Vorontsova, Group Account Director at data science consultancy Profusion There’s an idealised image of town life, perhaps 40 or 50 years ago, where high streets were full of independent shops, bread was delivered by a boy on a bike, everyone said hello to each other and you could leave your front door unlocked at night. In this Werther’s Original vision of Britain, the bank manager was a person of high esteem who knew every member of the community...

Don’t feed the hackers: How your attitude to data security could affect business

By Sonia Blizzard, MD of Beaming These days, putting your information online is something that appears to be an almost-daily occurrence. Credit card details, date of birth, mother’s maiden name – these are just a few things that we have all entered into a website at some point or another. But, where is this information going? Who can see it, and, are you sure you know exactly who has access to that information? As we go into an ever changing...

#4 - MerrEEE Christmas If you’re not that into games, you might be oblivious to the fact that next week is Nerd Christmas. E3, or the Electronic Entertainment Expo to give it its full title, sees all the big-hitters in videogames converge on LA to give the world the first glimpses of the latest things they’ve created, in order to empty my bank account. Again. The first E3 was 20 years ago now, coming into being as a response to the...

In less than five years, Gartner tells us that there will be more than 26 billion different connected devices in our homes, cars and businesses.

Metal Gear Solid: The Re-Write

This originally appeared on playthroughline.com Written by Ed Smith, the following script is a re-write of 1998's Metal Gear Solid and it's fucking hilarious and weird, and Joannes from playthroughline.com very kindly gave me permission to post it here for you all. Also a big thanks to Ed Smith for writing it or yapping it out-loud to his man-servant. I don't know his process but it works. Hope you all enjoy it. (Ed.) EXT. WET DOCK – SHADOW MOSES ISLAND...

#3 Festival of the Spoken Nerd  Last Sunday, I was down in Brighton with Rob Sedgebeer (All Hail King Rob) to preview our new live video-gaming/comedy game-show “thing”, WiFi Wars. We were the second half of a double bill at The Old Market (brilliant theatre, go there) and the gang that made up the other half were Helen Arney, Steve Mould and Matt Parker – better known as Festival of the Spoken Nerd. They’ve been doing shows together since 2011,...

FIFA 16 Controversy: Misogyny Update!

Misogyny; not just the title of the prettiest lady in Ogyny, but the most used word in gaming this week thanks to the bastion of equal rights that is football. Specifically (and quite rightly), EA are going to include the top women's national teams in the next FIFA game (not for the first time though, you've been able to play as a woman in  the career mode of their NHL franchise since 2012) which neatly cued up two competitions. One contest,...

This week I’ve been playing a lot of Splatoon, to write a review and some features about it (top ten levels, guide to multiplayer, stuff like that…) for Ginx TV. If this article goes online in-time, you can catch me chatting about the game on Ginx Live at 6pm tonight. (Virgin Media Channel 286, and www.twitch.tv/ginxtv) If you missed that, either because you didn’t read this until after...

An Idiot’s Adventures In Gameland – Steve McNeil

#1. Oh, hello, I didn’t see you there… Greetings, dear reader. My name is Steve McNeil and I’m lucky enough to have been asked to write things about the gaming industry for the marvellous London Economic. Each Friday, I’ll be beaming my brain-thoughts into your eyeholes via the internet, based on whatever I’ve been up to that week. As this is the first article, I’ll begin with a bit of background biography guff so you can quickly judge me and...
