  • Does your phone make travel difficult?

    Do you find that wherever you go, you always end up in the same place: in front of your smartphone? Using it, or letting it use you, to stay ‘connected’? Connected with what people are up to back home. Connected with the latest news reports. Connected with work. Connected with games, YouTube videos, Wikipedia. Connected with photos from the last holiday you took, and the one before that. What kind of ‘connection’ is that, really? This situation is something that’s crept up on us, and maybe it’s time to start making some decisions…

  • IP & Machine Learning

    Reading about an app using machine learning to recognise lemurs led me to imagine the conversation I might have with a client using machine learning to recognise some animal, perhaps cats. Whilst there are no specific provision of patent law directed at machine learning (ML), the particular characteristics of ML do present specific issues when trying to obtain intellectual property rights to protect developments in this field. The following strings together elements of many similar conversations I have had with clients in this field.

  • 5mins with Third Space Auto

    We catch up with Arshia Gratiot, Director of Technology Applications at Third Space Auto – one of the ten Discovering Start-Ups Competition finalists, pictured above. Are you finding it tricky to recruit talent? We are an early-stage startup so we don’t have deep pockets. This means that our choice of talent is often relegated to fresh graduates and / or interns which is great because one of our core principles is to train, mentor and give graduates and talented individuals a leg up. But even in this case the people who do come on board have to also pay their bills so often times are working second jobs so can’t be expected to give 110% which is what is necessary at this stage. Often times we need experienced people who can help guide and shape the product as we don’t have the liberty of time but we can’t afford them. Its tricky because investors base their decisions to go with you or not (at least at this stage) on the quality of the team so getting the right people on.board is critical. When we can’t afford them it does feel like we’re stuck between a rock and a hard place. The other challenge has been in recruiting qualified talent for our needs as they are very specialised. We need software engineers in the areas of machine learning and automotive software development. It’s been hard because we are competing with the likes of Jaguar Land Rover, Delphi etc for automotive engineering talent and  Entrepreneur first and Google for machine learning developers. Far and few in London and beyond. It’s been an a combination of leading through personality and luck that we were able to find the right development team, based in Romania and ex-collegues who have been advising us along the way.
