miércoles 2 diciembre 2015, 19:30 - 20:30

Cowper Street, London, Reino Unido

Our last event of 2015 will be on Weds, 2nd Dec. We have two talks lined up so far, with two being announced next week. Also, I wanted to try a small experiment; since places for HNLondon get snapped up in a few hours, I would like to release 200 places now and another 200 when the full event details get announced. As an end of year treat, the brilliant Sanderson Jones will be joining us to compere the event  Speakers:Jamie Knight (BBC) - What's in a voice? - very personal technologyIf a watch is personal technology then assistive speech software is _very_ personal technology. In this presentation Jamie explores what it means to have no voice. Exploring social and cultural attitudes to speech and how this effects development of speech technology. Will Critchlow (Distilled) - The future of search: 5 ways search is fundamentally changingSearch is undergoing dramatic changes taking it away from a focus on keywords and websites, towards conversational search and app indexes. Will is going to discuss the ways Distilled believes search is fundamentally changing including compound queries, implicit search signals, user signals as a ranking factor, the move from keywords to intents, and the drive towards data driven search. As always the event is accompanied by tons of free beer and pizza. Our beer has now been upgraded to 100% craft beer courtesy of our friends at Craft Rebellion. Videos of past talks are online at vimeo.com/hnlondon . If you are into the whole Twitter thing, the hashtag for the event is #HNLondon. There is a free event on Tues. 24th Nov. where speakers from Shazam, AOL, WorldRemit & Balderton Capital will be sharing advice on how they go about hiring for their respective companies. It's run by HN London co-organiser Stevie Buckley so you know it'll be a good one.
