Sponsor NoticesMicrosoft talk: The Future of Tech with James Whittaker
*Said Business School, 12:15pm Tuesday (6th week)*
Apps are eating the web. The Internet of Things will ultimately mean more
Internet traffic generated and consumed by machines than by humans.
Machines are learning our habits faster than we can form them. What does
all this mean for the future? How will we interact with our devices when
they are as smart or smarter than we are? How will anyone manage to make
money is this coming world? Join Microsoft Distinguished Engineer James
Whittaker for an entertaining and thought provoking jaunt into the future -
a future coming a lot faster than most people imagine.

Entrepreneur First Student Partner opportunity
We're on the lookout for a Student Partner to help us change the way the
most talented students think about their careers. At Entrepreneur First we
specialise in supporting people to build technically defensible companies
from scratch and we're looking for ambitious Student Partners to help us
inspire and engage the best student technologists to build a startup with
EF. This is a great opportunity if you're interested in tech startups and
either see yourself founding one or working for one in the future.
You'll be helping us grow EF's brand at your university and encourage the
best student engineers to start companies. This is a community-facing role
and you'll be the eyes and ears 'on the ground' - gathering first-hand
insights about our customers and helping them to kick-start their startup
journeys with EF. You'll be focused on building a technical community and
running tech and startup-focused meetups and events. You'll play a key role
in driving applications to our EFX Internship programme enabling students
to experience working for a startup first hand.
