The FlexPai phone offers a tablet-sized screen when open or three separate displays when folded up.

 

With a new Apple phone X meanwhile costing well over £1,000, the price of this innovative bendy screen phone seems to be a "bargain" for anyone loving their gadget. It equally shows that as a newcomer to the market you can beat others to the game of first launching the long time announced bendy screen phone.

 

Apple is long rumoured to have one in development and every year it is expected to be their next big launch. However to me Apple has become not necessarily the company that launches innovations the first and is happy to look at how others deal with the children illnesses in the product to then launch their own matured version or with their archest in money just buy up the company and integrate the technology/innovation in their products.

 

A strategy that has paid off for them and for other giants in other industries (Volkswagen re. electric cars i.e. Tesla)

      The adoption of FinTech will bring significant changes for the future of Investment Management - from which products are offered to clients and how they are delivered, to the overall structure of the Industry itself. This level of disruption will also impact the future careers of the individuals working in or entering the Industry today.
       
      According to the European Fund and Asset Management Association (EFAMA), there are 610,000 professionals employed directly or indirectly across Europe in the Investment Management ecosystem, with over 100,000 in the UK. Which of these roles could disappear over the next couple of years, where are the opportunities and how should you navigate the disruption?
       
      In our latest report, The Disrupted Career: FinTech, Innovation and the Future of Careers in Investment Management, we explore how FinTech is changing careers across the industry, and how professionals are being impacted by and are responding to these changes.

      Disrupted Career Paths

      Our report found that very few areas within Investment Management will not be impacted by technological change; the career paths of the future will be radically different. 
       
      Professionals will need to embrace a more flexible approach to career planning. In addition, future job growth and progression opportunities will be concentrated in FinTech and in roles driving innovation in existing Investment Management functions.
       

       
       
      Will We All Be Coders?
       
      Many professionals will need to develop more technical skills, and not just in traditional technology roles. Even where ‘hard’ skills around coding, AI and data science will not be important, there will be an expectation that professionals will have a more holistic view of how technology underpins the business.
       

       
      However, this will not negate the importance of soft skills, and blending skill-sets will be critical for the most successful teams and individuals.
       
      With the industry expecting strong growth with a target of doubling of AUM over the next decade, those who position themselves to embrace the coming changes can look forward exciting opportunities.

      The FCA published last week it's Research Agenda for 2019 (2019 fca-research-agenda.pdf). Their focus will be on
      household finance and consumer behaviour
      household finance and consumer behaviour securities markets: microstructure, integrity and stability competition, innovation, and firm behaviour and culture technology, big data, and artificial intelligence regulatory efficiency and effectiveness  
      The 3rd objective seems to bring the discussion previously focussed on pricing in general to the more sophisticated pricing which increasingly uses technology and big data to set prices, and often use predictive analytics to personalise prices. 
       
      The 4th objective aims to better understand how the developments in technology, big data, and artificial intelligence are shifting market economics, the resulting benefits and harms and implications for regulation.
       
      All this with the aim to ensure that their regulatory interventions achieve their objectives of making efficient use of their and industry’s resources. From an external perspective, they want to achieve a regulatory regime that promotes and supports effective financial markets while minimising their costs to society.
       
      I am looking forward to their research outcomes and the future regulations that is designed on the back of it

      This article shows very well as to what data you "give away" when using apps on your phone and clearly also how others make money with it (just in case you believe in the myth that the Internet or Apps are for free).
       
      Not everyone is using / selling your data and numerous apps need your location to work. However as we all install apps without readings the T&Cs its worthwhile every now and again to review what permissions you have given to your data.
       
      Equally you can protect yourself to it by changing some of the settings on your phone.

      With the role out of 5G started by EE in various UK cities, the mobile internet is promising to get much faster and being able to match the fixed line broadband. But it is not just a story of speed as this next generation mobile broadband network will equally spark the development and launch of new apps: from keeping track of vehicles and equipment around the country, to running complex networks of factory robots and autonomous systems capable of communicating with each other, or with a cloud-based control system in near real-time.
      So what does this mean in practise ? Think of healthcare and an ambulance will vie able to more reliable and sophisticated communicate with the hospital and send over medical data of the patient where every second counts. Autonomous driving will become more of a reality with the exchange between car and many other data.
      Phil Baulch, BT's CIO of corporate and public sector, says that, with the increasing availability of distributed edge computing systems where every device on the network is also a node in a compute cluster, "you can start to connect a city, you can start to connect everything in the home together. You can start to connect the supply chain to the factory to the distribution chain to the robotics in a house." 
      Around this hype of speed and improved connectivity, I would like to add some caution as in my experience the much hyped move from 3G to 4G has been underwhelming and often I still find my self with only 3G, even in London. Equally with the interconnection of whole cities, what does that do to security and confidentiality of data. Do we really want to give away all our personal data for the "greater" good. We like to think that in the internet of things everything is for free, but the short history has learnt that we pay a dear price for the data we (unconsciously) provide.
