Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, declares London Is Open to global technology.
In anticipation of the London Tech festival a short 50 second film has been created, spreading the message that London is Open to technology talent, investment and innovation from all over the world. The LCN was selected to particpate in the film, to help showcase its word-class imaging, characterisation and fabrication facilities.
The film highlights that London is at the forefront of innovation, featuring scenes including a driverless 'POD', Londoners using VR headsets, Robots in the workplace and even The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, taking the first roboselfie of his Mayoralty. As London leads the way in the growth of smart cities, the film also illustrates how technology is already improving quality of urban life through smarter infrastructure and new approaches to health, fashion and transport.
The film is available to view here.
The latest innovations in drones, artificial Intelligence, and robots will feature as part of a packed events programme for London Tech Week 2017, which will take place across the capital next month (12th-16th June).
Throughout the week, attendees of Europe's largest festival of tech will have the opportunity to attend a host of events including a concert with the award winning composer Hans Zimmer, the Drone Racing League (DRL) Season Finale and The Europas, which will welcome 1,000 European start-ups to the capital.
The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan commented “London is Europe's leading technology hub. Our talent, diversity, entrepreneurial spirit and global connections put us at the heart of digital technology. London Tech Week 2017 will be a fantastic opportunity to show that London is open to collaboration, innovation and ideas that could change the way that all Londoners live and experience the city."
