The ride-hailing service had its licence after it was deemed that a "pattern of failures" had led to its passengers sometimes being put at risk. In particular, Uber was found to be employing unauthorised and unlicensed drivers following a change to its systems that allowed them to upload their own photos. The firm had previously been denied a licence in 2017 before a judge restored it on a probationary basis.

Communications infrastructure is often destroyed or damaged during a crisis, including in targeted attacks, wars and environmental catastrophes. This makes it difficult, or impossible, for emergency response teams and those at the centre of a disaster to call for help. One project exploring 5G drones as pop-up networks is the Distributed Autonomous and Resilient Emergency Management System (DARE). Launched by the UK’s Surrey, Glasgow and Kingston universities, and Malaysia’s University of Malaya, DARE has developed a system of portable, battery-powered communications nodes that use 5G to connect with airborne drones to deliver wireless internet access to ground users. Work on the project started in 2017 when it received £1.2m in funding fro.

Rare earth minerals are naturally occurring resources, which cannot be recreated or replaced. Some are present in only very small quantities in the Earth’s crust. They were created when the extreme heat and pressure conditions produced by a star’s evolution pushed atoms together to create elements. When a star’s core collapses, it explodes as a supernova. They accumulated over time as stars exploded and the elements fell to Earth. “Planets such as the Earth are made from the remnants of old, dead stars, and the products of star explosions like supernovae, all gravitating together; the Earth and everything on it, including ourselves, are made of stardust,” says Elisabeth Ratcliffe at the Royal Society of Chemistry. There are five very rare e.

The new strategy will apparently help companies and organisations gain greater access to data to drive “digital transformation, innovation and boost growth across the economy”. Among the proposals are plans to train 500 analysts in data science across the public sector by next year. The Government will also introduce a new chief data officer to lead its approach to transforming its use of data to drive efficiency and improve public services. It also intends to start a £2.6m project to address current barriers to data sharing and support innovation to detect online harms. Data-enabled UK service exports were estimated to be approximately £243bn in 2019 - around 75 per cent of total service exports. Globally, the UK now sits behind only the U.

Amid the US-China trade war, US President Donald Trump has focused much of his energy on attacking Chinese technology companies like Huawei, Tencent, and ByteDance, including through executive orders blacklisting the companies and pressuring US allies to isolate them. In May 2019, Trump claimed that Huawei was a national security threat which would assist the Chinese government in surveillance efforts, and , effectively preventing US companies from working with Huawei.

Cars are arguably one of the most significant inventions created by humankind. Without them, getting from A to B would have been – and still would be – limited, the world of motorsport would never have been born, and the range of technologies that go beyond the car bonnet that we see today would be non-existent. There’s no doubt that they have shaped our everyday lives, and there is so much more to come. In the next 30 years or so the technology itself will transform. This sets the question as to how new technologies will shape the cars of the future. Gadget fiend of ‘The Gadget Show’ and car nut Jon Bentley explores exactly that. In ‘’ (Atlantic Books, £9.99, ISBN 9781786496355), Bentley looks at the motor industry’s rich heritage and talk.

The automaker commissioned a survey of 2,000 people which found that almost half (46 per cent) of people do not intend to buy an EV in the future. The main reasons given for hesitation include perceived lack of affordability (53 per cent), concern about where to charge (51 per cent), and anxiety (33 per cent). In July 2017, the UK government announced that it would . This year, the government and included hybrids in the ban. While petrol and diesel cars still account for nine out of every ten car sales in the UK, automakers are increasingly focused on developing more affordable and practical EVs. The survey found that there appears to be a lack of understanding about how EVs work – and even what they are, at the most basic level – with 36 p.

Amid the ongoing trade war between the US and China, the Trump administration has focused many of its most aggressive attacks on influential Chinese technology companies such as Huawei, WeChat, TikTok and ZTE. According to reports from Reuters and other news organisations, the US Department of Defense and other US agencies are considering attempting to cripple SMIC by adding it to the 'Entity List', which already contains more than 275 Chinese companies alleged to be working against the interests of the US. The addition of SMIC to the list would force US companies to seek extremely difficult-to-obtain licenses to work with the company, effectively preventing it from using technology with US origins.

High Speed 2 (HS2) will connect London to Manchester and Leeds via Birmingham, with a Y-shaped network. Trains will be able to travel at up to 360km/h on the tracks. It is hoped that building HS2 will increase rail network capacity while causing minimal disruption to existing services, and will boost and rebalance the UK economy. After years of planning, disagreement, and reviews, the government gave HS2 the green light in February and construction has officially started. Work will begin on the London-Birmingham segment, and will initially focus on the largest engineering challenges such as tunnels and city centre stations, followed by the main viaducts and bridges. The Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in a statement: “HS2 is at the heart

Led by the University of Bristol, the quantum breakthrough has the potential to serve millions of users and is understood to be the largest-ever quantum network of its kind. By deploying a new technique, harnessing the simple laws of physics, it can make messages completely safe from interception while also overcoming major challenges which have previously limited advances in the much-hyped quantum sector. The team’s quantum technique applies a principle called entanglement, which Albert Einstein described as ‘spooky action at a distance.’It exploits the power of two different particles placed in separate locations, potentially thousands of miles apart, to simultaneously mimic each other.

Hearing loss happens to many of us. The US National Institutes of Health, for example, estimates that one in eight Americans aged 12 years and older has hearing loss in both ears. Twenty-five per cent of adults aged between 65 and 75, and half of those aged 75 and older, experience disabling hearing loss. According to NIH’s National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, 28.8 million US adults could benefit from using hearing aids. Those who could benefit aren’t necessarily rushing to achieve better hearing. While most first-time hearing aid users are in their late 60s and early 70s, their hearing problems will have started years earlier; it takes seven years on average to give hearing technology a try. Those working in th.

The idea that you continue to exist digitally after you’ve physically shuffled off this mortal coil is in some respects quite subtle. As anyone who has experienced receiving social media updates from someone you know to be dead can attest, it can be an unnerving experience. This is because in the digital age, there’s another layer to death quite unlike any society has experienced before. (The MIT Press, $19.95, ISBN 9780262539395) is philosopher Davide Sisto’s valiant attempt to explain the phenomenon of cyberspace as the biggest graveyard ever created, in which “countless acres” are taken up by photographs and videos, as well as the thoughts and memories of those that have shared their last status updates. ‘Online Afterlives’ essentially d.

Amid the US-China trade war, US President Donald Trump has imposed a series of restrictions designed to cripple dozens of influential Chinese tech giants like Huawei, which use some American hardware and software in their products. In May, Trump introduced new restrictions to . The restrictions are posing multiple challenges for Huawei, with the restrictions cited as a reason for the UK government U-turning on its decision to permit Huawei to contribute to the UK 5G rollout, and key supplier. Huawei does not currently have the capacity to manufacture the chips itself, while Shanghai-based foundry SMIC also lacks capacity to produce high-end silicon. This will result in limited supplies of the Huawei Mate 40 smartphones, which may be the last.
