A look into the future of technology with Cambridge University


By Ortis Deley | Published on 10 May 2019

My next destination as a Line Resident for Great Northern is The Institute of Manufacturing at Cambridge University to discuss the future of technology, and how this will further transform our everyday lives in years to come.

Journey with me as I take the short trip from Kings Cross direct to Cambridge to meet Tim Minshall, Professor of Innovation & Head of the Institute for Manufacturing, Thomas Bohné, Senior Research Associate and PhD student Nadeem Gabbani. Together, we discuss how simple technologies are transforming millions of lives a day, how VR is being utilised to safely train staff in some of the most dangerous jobs, and how the latest lasers are being developed to build the cities of the future.
