We have been writing algorithms for machine learning and artificial intelligence for years. We have combined our experience with the ability to think differently about the technology around us and applied what we’ve learnt to AI. As a result, we are redefining AI with our new methodology. It’s smarter, it’s safer and it’s more human than anything in AI before.

Looking forward to the #neurodiverse business networking skills workshop today delivered by the fantastic @SparkleClass, this amazing workshop is refreshingly aimed at giving the neurodiverse fishing rods instead of fish! If interested in talks like this one, DM @TheLandingMCUK.

Tue Jul 21 2020

It's sad to hear that @HackManchester is closing down, we've had a number of our team members attend past events & they've always said they have had a good time. We would like to thank the #HackMCR team for all the hard work they've put in over the past 8 years! 💛🐝 #HackMCRFav

With the new and improved features introduced they’ve allowed for developers to get even more out of each API call, meaning that greater and more powerful projects can be created by the use of #AI (5/6)

Fri Jul 17 2020

Scaling with user needs like AWS while simplifying its use is a savvy business investment into the dev' community becoming once again the training example for little Timmy's first @TwitterDev API. Allowing little Timmy’s app to now scale into an empire without recoding. (2/6)

Sat Feb 29 2020

Salah Sharief makes us question how we can dehumaning we can become with the less contact we have with people, the more physical and emotional distance we have to someone, using the milgram experiment as an example, we need to save our humanity! @TEDxManchester #TEDxManchester

Sat Feb 29 2020

Sat Feb 29 2020

Insperational personal story from @scopelandboxer, who persevered through discrimination just because they wanted to play sports, then becoming the first British woman to win the commonwealth boxing title years later, question your language 🥊 @TEDxManchester #TEDxManchester

Sat Feb 29 2020

Facial recognition is an incredible piece of technology, it can aid in verification and catching criminals, but what else is the data being used for, what kind of discrimination is it enabling and how accurate is it, amazing talk by @parmy. @TEDxManchester #TEDxManchester

Sat Feb 29 2020

Amazingly interesting music from @DuckOrchestra to kick off the second round of talks @TEDxManchester 🎶🎷🎻 #TEDxManchester

Sat Feb 29 2020

Non-verbals are the core of communication and are embedded into our limbic system, even people born blind will raise their hands to their face when then hear something they don't like, so many thought provoking insights from @navarrotells. @TEDxManchester #TEDxManchester

Sat Feb 29 2020

Success is much more difficult for specialists to achieve, those who specialise too early in their career might make more money in the short term, but those who generalise & have sampling periods often perform better, great talk from @DavidEpstein @TEDxManchester #TEDxManchester

Sat Feb 29 2020

Extremely interesting insights from @J_Bloodworth talking about his experience working in "gig economy" zero hour jobs at Amazon and Uber, it's definitely not the lavish life style that people think, with strict rules/punishments and bad pay @TEDxManchester #TEDxManchester

Sat Feb 29 2020

We've got our seats @TEDxManchester, not too long until the first set of speakers start #TEDxManchester

The work that @greatermcr are doing is amazing, we see a few familiar names/friends in the digital blueprint and we hope that INEVITABLE, along with our @CompiledMCR project, can assist with #GMdigital

Tue Feb 04 2020

On @Meetup alone there are over 170 groups, having hosted more than 3,000 events spanning the past few years. It's quite difficult to convey how large the community is, which is why we're working on @CompiledMCR, a tool for the #ManchesterTechCommunity

Thu Jan 30 2020

We have to thank @itsonlymepaddy tonight for his encouragement for us to talk tonight @eagle_labs_sal hosted @TheLandingMCUK, amazing first event organised by Paddy 🤖

Thu Jan 23 2020

Here's a little bit of irony for today, as we were putting together our last tweet spellchecker suggested that "abductive" should be "deductive", surely someone put that in as an easter egg.

Thu Jan 16 2020

Loving the data blocks, button and curation 💾

Thu Jan 16 2020

We're enjoying hearing fr several people about their different experiences and influences on the many different gadgets brought tonight for @mcrfuturists.

Thu Jan 16 2020

Thu Jan 16 2020

Thu Nov 28 2019

As part of our open-source @CompiledMCR project, we are happy to announce we have released the data from Meetup for the Manchester Tech' scene, along with the scripts we created to gather it. We hope to be able to feature data visualizations on it soon.

Sooooo we have released the source code for @CompiledMCR Events (formally Manchester Tech Meetups) after many requests, so please do check it out and give us any feedback, we do hope to put more development time into it soon 😁

Wed Oct 23 2019

Wo-Man: Today's sad, funny and true incitement of the human race is brought to us by Googles' word2vec model trained on Google News which we've been playing around with. For giggles, we retrieved the closest words for "woman" and "man", we think the results speak for themselves.

Sat Oct 19 2019

It was a pleasure to give our first talk @oggcamp, for those who are interested in collaborating with us, give us a DM. Here are the links/pictures for the projects from our slides: Image Classification Benchmarker - NavEnabled -

Tue Oct 15 2019

It has come to our attention that Meetup will soon start charging fees to event attendees, due to this, we will be pursuing more of our community focused open source projects. We hope to discuss some of them @oggcamp this Saturday and spark discussions with more collaborators.

Thu Oct 03 2019

We've just published our first public package on @npmjs as INEVITABLE, it's a simple package to make and test transfer learning, but our aim is to use it in a much bigger modular system.

Thu Sep 26 2019

It was a pleasure to officially be introduced to Paddy, our new Ecosystem Manager for @eagle_labs_sal in @TheLandingMCUK, we will sorely miss @darren1_obrien, but this is definitely how business cards should be done at Eagle Labs

Thu Sep 19 2019

It's good to see @RosieCampbell back talking @mcrfuturists @AutoTraderLife, one of our particularly favourite meetup groups due to the frequent focus on AI.

Mon Sep 16 2019

It was a pleasure catching up with @guettel @OfficialUoM after hearing his talk @Manc_ML on "Symbolic Time Series Representations" today

Thu Sep 05 2019
