Invest in Finland hosted this webinar about the unique challenges of writing software in the automotive industry.

Digitalization, Connectivity, Electrification, Mobility Services and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are all becoming standard elements in Automotive Design. This trend has led to OEMs having to deal with the exponential increase in Software Content while attempting to reach Software Development speeds typical of “digital-native companies”.

Anna Chu, the architect of Microsoft Ignite, is interviewed by Dona and Sarah to ask her how she makes sure Microsoft’s largest tech conference of the year runs smoothly, what’s coming up next and the importance of avoiding conference burnout.

Seeker explains how a new kind of nuclear battery could power missions into deep space.

In April of 2020, NASA researchers announced they had come up with a new approach to fusion that has the potential to power missions into deep space, and maybe even future laptops here on Earth. This is really exciting news as when it comes to making energy, nuclear fusion is the ultimate goal because of the promise it holds of clean limitless energy that is available on demand.
