ICHU is a new initiative, focussing on improving the way that people communicate, using the oldest tool of all – voice. Speech Intelligibility is a growing challenge in voice communications – around 14% of adults globally have some impairment in the speech frequencies, leading to poor experience and the loss of precious minutes of time talking to our loved ones and colleagues. Add background noise to mix, and understanding what is being said becomes even more of a challenge. We want ICHU to make a difference to as many people as possible, by becoming the de-facto standard for Personalised Speech Intelligibility, working with telco operators to make the solution as accessible as possible for as many people as we can. https://ichu.io/wp/
The founders come from a strong academic and industrial background in the field of high-speed telecommunications, advanced control systems and localisation technologies.They have identified a cross-sector opportunity that addresses the need for precision localisation, orientation and robust communication in harsh and GPS-denied environments. The team have already developed a proof-of-concept that improves the spatial awareness and autonomy of robotic systems by providing high-speed and pinpoint accurate navigational information. They will now work with the IM support team to move forward their exciting plans for the next stage of the company.
Extend Robotics is a robotic technology company. We view ourselves as a special force taken on a mission to extend human capabilities beyond physical existence, using advanced robotic technologies. We augment human intelligence with machine intelligence to develop superhuman flying robots with scalable AI, and form an ecosystem to rapidly advance the robot autonomy under human control.
Extend Robotics is developing a non-conventional drone platform. It flies and perches with two robotic arms, which is guided by virtual reality technology over 5G internet. It works as a physical avatar of the user, to perform manipulation tasks remotely. By offering human-level dexterity at zero risk, it is a perfect tool to help industrial operators to perform installation and maintenance tasks in hard to reach confined high spaces. So that they can get the work done safer, faster and cheaper.
The vision of the Extend Robotics is to digitise the physical work to create scalable AI in robotic, while insuring rapid and smooth early adoption.

MajestEYE is a Data Analytics Technology vendor with the mission of empowering its customers to succeed in the transition to a data driven business model.
Founded by two Co-founders with complementary profiles, Business Transformation consulting and Data Science, MajestEYE crafts its vision for the value of data, its methodology for data analytics and its know-how into a proprietary technology that solve three main challenges faced by organisations engaged in Digital Transformation: First, scattered analytics resulting in inconsistent approaches and tools; second, the lack of open ended exploration of data leaving a wealth of knowledge untapped; third; the difficulty to deploy successful data analytics POCs at scale.
MajestEYE tackles these challenges first through a technology that covers the whole data value chain (from ingestion to deployment) following the best practices for data analytics methods; second, by dedicating an intuitive module for Exploratory Data Analytics and third, by using its powerful predictive analytics engine as a data modelling factory allowing knowledge extraction and deployment at scale.

Strokes are the 4th highest cause of death and the highest cause of long-term invalidity in the UK. More than 100,000 people experience a stroke each year and about 1M people are already living with the consequences. The treatment and rehabilitation for these patients, including the loss of productivity in the work place, costs the NHS and UK economy nearly £10bn annually. Heatley Consulting is leading the development of an innovative new medical scanner that will help to greatly improve these statistics by enabling stroke patients to be quickly scanned and diagnosed on scene. Treatment can then be commenced with minimal delay after the onset of the stroke, ideally within the first hour – the golden hour. This will greatly improve the outcome for these patients and reduce the incidence for long term rehabilitation. The new scanner uses safe, low intensity radio waves to determine whether a stroke has occurred. When fully developed its low cost, compact and readily portable construction will enable it to be carried in ambulances and first responder vehicles and used on-scene. This avoids the delays incurred in the current patient pathway, which requires stroke patients to be transported to a hospital for an X-ray CT scan before a diagnosis can be made and treatment commenced. The new scanner can also be deployed in hospital emergency departments and high dependency wards far more widely and at considerably lower cost compared with X-ray CT incumbents. With further development with non-specialist operators in mind, the new scanner could be deployed in nursing and care homes for the elderly where there is a localised population at an increased risk of stroke, as well as in GP surgeries and community health centres. Crucially, the scanner will help to increase the percentage of patients who present with stroke-like symptoms to be assessed, diagnosed and initial treatment commenced within the golden hour. This will significantly improve the outlook for these patients which in turn will help to reduce the annual ~£10bn cost of strokes to the nation.

Dotmatix takes the pain out of developing embedded code for IoT devices. Using our web based drag and drop interface, you can create and deploy simple or very complex applications in hours or days rather than weeks or months. Before deployment, you can step through your application using our online device emulator.
Our products can be used on Wifi, 3/4G or Ethernet connected devices and we support ISM wireless devices. Our platform can be used just for deployment and management, or you can use Dotmatix as your complete IoT platform. The deployment process also creates your own web interface.
Current applications based on Dotmatix include craft brewery fermentation control systems, remote internal combustion engine fault insertion, weather station monitoring, electric motor control, heating control and water, oil and water use monitoring.”

Farmers are facing a barrage of new digital propositions but without the skills or experience to take advantage of them. In an already fragmented and typically supplier-led industry, one which is increasingly facing new political, environmental, social and commercial challenges, the situation is only going to get worse. Diometer is developing a new solution to address these issues – an intelligent geographically based mapping engine accessible by farmers in the office and field. The Diometer system, incorporating the latest AI and ML techniques, will be able to integrate these disparate data sources and add further value with the introduction of new advanced agricultural features
