Our Lead Product Architect Roman and CGO George had the pleasure of representing at the Talking Industry Live event at the MTC in Coventry last month.  

As a distinguished first-time panellist, Roman shared his insights on the AI & Industrial Data panel alongside Mostafiz Rahman and Stuart Mcleod. The discussion was both thought-provoking and informative, and Roman’s contributions were well-received by the audience.

And of course, our friends at Brainbox also stopped by to showcase their 3D printed version of our OctaiPipe Octopus, leaving us not only flattered but very impressed. OctaiPipe on the BB400? Only time will tell…  


Back on the 14th March, our CEO Eric took part in the EU Tech Chamber webinar, “Edge computing: Bridging capabilities of the cloud to smart factories” alongside Thomas Poett, Bhavishya Bhatt and the EU Tech Chamber host, Judith Yang.  

During the discussion, the speakers highlighted the importance of digital twins, which involves creating a digital copy of a factory and processing lines to bring together various technologies and analyse them using AI. These digital twins emphasise the importance of edge computing and zero-waste initiatives, which aim to reduce cardon footprints and promote sustainability. Pretty cool right?
