Women In Tech

Further to National Women’s Day on the 8th March, RWA delves into statistics to find that women are a minority in modern day tech. Despite the fact that women have always been instrumental in technology development, according to a survey by PwC, only 15% of employees in STEM roles in the UK are women and only 3% of females say that a career in tech is their first choice.

AI’s Impact on UK Jobs In The Future #2

The CBI is calling on the government to establish a joint commission tasked with examining the impact of AI on people and jobs across all sectors of the UK economy.

Based on research it conducted into the way that technology is changing the way we live and work, the CBI said recently that it had identified three technologies - AI, Blockchain and the Internet of Things - that are set to move from the fringes to the mainstream within the next five years.

Oxford’s Tech Sector Moves Into Second Place Behind London

Oxford’s growing technology sector has helped it move into second place, behind London, in a table of UK cities ranked by total economic output.

According to the Q4 2017 UK Powerhouse report, Oxford’s output was valued at £498m and its economy £8.3bn, a rise of 2.2% in the 12 months to the end of June.

Up to around 30% of existing UK jobs could face automation over the next 15 years, but new AI-related technologies will also boost productivity and generate additional jobs elsewhere in the economy, according to new analysis by PwC in its latest UK Economic Outlook report. 

The study estimates that the UK (30%) has a lower proportion of existing jobs at potential high risk of automation than the US (38%) and Germany (35%), but more than Japan (21%).

AI and Cyber Security - Grave New World

The recent cyber attack on organisations around the world, including our very own NHS, has been in the minds of professionals for a long time yet nonetheless for many others has clearly been something of a wake-up call. In the near future, as artificial intelligence (AI) systems become more capable, we will begin to see more automated and increasingly sophisticated social engineering attacks. 

Digital Business Growth - the Thames Valley vs London Tech Clusters

The digital economy in the UK is thriving. The UK-wide nature of the industry was supported by the Tech Nation research report from Tech City UK - the agency originally created by the government to promote the east London tech cluster but which now promotes tech business growth UK-wide.

Using data from fast-rising digital businesses like Duedil and Adzuna, the Tech Nation 2015 report predicts that digital job growth will outperform all other occupation categories by 2020 - with digital employment itself set to grow by 5.4% by 2020.
