    Encouraging future generations into STEM

    Encouraging future generations into STEM

    Despite a huge boom in technological innovation around the world and an expanding tech industry, the number of graduates who have come from STEM subjects remains relatively low. Just over a quarter of university graduates in the UK have studied a STEM course, and in the US it’s less than 1-in-5.  Within that, there is still a huge disparity in gender after secondary school compulsory education.
    In this episode we’ll be looking at how we can engage the next, and future generations in science and technology-led professions, and the importance of role models in showing what can be achieved by a career in STEM, with former NASA rocket scientist, STEM ambassador, entrepreneur and confirmed future astronaut, Aisha Bowe.
    This is Technology Now, a weekly show from Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Every week we look at a story that's been making headlines, take a look at the technology behind it, and explain why it matters to organizations and what we can learn from it.

    Facing the ethical concerns of AI

    Facing the ethical concerns of AI

    The ethical question of AI has been at the forefront of its development. Today, there is a global rush to establish legal and ethical frameworks around AI, such as the European Parliament AI Act, which aim to legislate around concerns surrounding potential bias from bad data sets or algorithms, privacy concerns, and non-discrimination.
    Our guest this week is Principal Data Scientist and AI Ambassador at HPE, Iveta Lohovska. We’ll be discussing the practicality of placing guardrails around AI, as well as the ethical approach that needs to be taken for training models - and whether the sheer scale of its growth is leaving us vulnerable as a society.

    Why does the circular economy matter to IT? HPE's Technology Renewal Center re-visited

    Why does the circular economy matter to IT? HPE's Technology Renewal Center re-visited

    We’re back in the studio this week, revisiting Michael’s trip to HPE’s Technology Renewal Center in Erskine, Scotland. There, over three million pieces of IT equipment are renewed or recycled every year, with over 80% finding a new home according to HPE.
    So why does it matter? This week, we’ll be looking at tech renewal in more detail, with un-heard interview audio from Michael’s tour of the center with his guide, Ray McGann: Managing Director of HPE Financial Services Ireland, and Worldwide Enterprise IT Asset Lifecycle Leader.

    The end-of-use tech finding a new life at HPE’s Technology Renewal Center

    The end-of-use tech finding a new life at HPE’s Technology Renewal Center

    According to 2023 figures from the World Economic Forum, around 53.6 million metric tons of e-waste is produced every year worldwide.
    Combating that is HPE’s Technology Renewal Center (TRC) at Erskine, just outside Glasgow in Scotland. It takes in around 3 million pieces of end of use tech every year to help it find a new life. In fact, according to HPE's figures, 9.2 million assets have been put back into use over the last 3 years.
    This week, Michael’s been out visiting the Technology Renewal Center to discover how end of use tech is getting a second chance, with his guide, Ray McGann: Managing Director of HPE Financial Services Ireland, and Worldwide Enterprise IT Asset Lifecycle Leader.

    How AI is creating a digital twin of the human brain

    How AI is creating a digital twin of the human brain

    According to Alzheimer Disease International, there are 10 million new cases of dementia across the world every year. That’s the equivalent of a new case every 3 seconds.
    It’s a devastating disease which manifests differently in different patients, but a new and novel approach could revolutionize treatment. A team from University College London is developing a foundational AI model of the human brain, with the hope it can be trained to trial individualised treatment plans for dementia sufferers, as well as better understand the disease.
    Our guest this week is one of the project leaders. Parashkev Nachev is a Professor of Neurology at University College London. His team have been working in collaboration with HPE to create these AI-based digital twin, bringing together the best of AI and human medical expertise.
    This is Technology Now, a weekly show from Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Every week we look at a story that's been making headlines, take a look at the technology behind it, and explain why it matters to organizations and what we can learn from it.

    Exploring the Isambard AI supercomputer

    Exploring the Isambard AI supercomputer

    The UK’s fastest supercomputer, the Isambard-AI, is due to be completed in Summer 2024. According to the teams involved, it will reach up to 200 quadrillion calculations per second, and will give researchers and industry leaders new possibilities in the UK: the opportunity to work with the huge potential AI has to offer in the fields of robotics, big data, climate research, and drug discovery.
    Our guest this week is one of the project leaders: Professor Simon McIntosh-Smith from University of Bristol. We’ll be looking at how Isambard-AI will be an open hub for all AI research in the UK, powered by around five-and-a-half-thousand GPUs. 
    This is Technology Now, a weekly show from Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Every week we look at a story that's been making headlines, take a look at the technology behind it, and explain why it matters to organizations and what we can learn from it.

C/Smoothie ,

Fantastic show!!

I’m a software engineering student at ASU. I really like how this keeps me up to date with what’s happening today and what the world might look like when I graduate. I only wish they came out with new shows more often. Thank you for producing this!!
