Demo Nights: Emerging Technologies

Demo Nights is back for another instalment taking place on April 24th at PwC's offices in Spinningfields.

For this session we're going to be exploring some of the most exciting and innovative emerging technologies that the region has to offer.

There'll be more demos, more discussion and more opportunity to get hands on with the tech.

Speakers include:

Dom Raban, managing director, Corporation PopDom will be demoing the Xploro app. Xploro is a mobile app that uses augmented reality, gameplay & artificial intelligence to deliver health information to young patients, reducing the stress & anxiety associated with hospitalisation, improving health literacy & fostering better engagement with health services. Corporation Pop have been developing the app for almost 4 years with support from Innovate UK and the Nominet Trust.

Jon Abbott, CEO and co-founder, ThreatAware. ThreatAware enables managers and directors to check the status of all their IT hardware and software, and check compliance with policies and procedures at the same time. The easy-to-use dashboard provides complete visibility, alerting them to threats, making it clear what actions need to be taken and by whom, and keeping records for compliance purposes.

Joshua Riddett - Managing Director - Easy Crypto Hunter. Josh will be presenting the premium Cryptocurrency GPU Mining Rig. The machines use a combination of specialist hardware and software to provide processing power to the Blockchain, in return for providing the service it is paid in cryptocurrency. This arrangement is similar to a business paying for web hosting, they are paying to use someone else's computer power.

Join us on 24th April to look at some of the cutting edge products and tools that businesses in Manchester are creating.

Our speakers will provide 300 second elevator pitches on their products and will share insights into the thoughts behind the tech through a panel discussion. You will also have the opportunity to demo and play with the tech that they bring along.

This event is sponsored by PwC.
