TINWire Tech News Roundup: 18 Sept 17

Ashley Hibbard Tech News 0 Comments

Welcome to our mid-September issue of the TINWire –

This month’s Bloomberg Businessweek cover story on the extraordinary artificial intelligence work of Mark Sagar’s Soul Machines reminds us that New Zealand really is a heavyweight on the global tech stage –  we’re proud to see their name in lights.  “People get up to weird things in New Zealand”, in the words of Ashlee Vance, but weird is good (in my words).  

Other members of the TIN community we’re recognising as we count down to the unveiling of this year’s TIN Report include Rocket Lab founder and CEO Peter Beck who has literally blasted on to the world stage with his recent, historic rocket launch from Mahia Peninsula.  We’re honoured to have Peter as our guest speaker at next month’s launch.  Get your tickets now!  Xero’s another company from the TIN stable that’s been making headlines lately with its launch of a new suite of front-office products, taking it from being just an accounting tool into a global small business platform.  Read more about it below.

Enjoy TINWire and have a great week!

All the best,
Greg & the TIN Team
