Uber has finally gone driverless

In case you’re totally over the fact that your Uber actually turns up with a driver in it, you may just be in for some exciting news. After a trial carried out in May, today Uber has finally launched its driverless service in a US city - fingers crossed we’ll see them in London soon.

The online food coach

A food delivery service is planning to launch a Facebook Messenger chatbot food "coach", in an attempt to create "the world's greatest food community". This may come in useful for when you just don’t know what to order, but it sounds like the chatbot will operate more as a restaurant suggester than as an expert cuisine advice service.

Amazon Echo Comes to the UK

Amazon’s virtual assistant Echo speakers are coming to the UK, Germany and Austria at the end of this month. The device lets users control their home and complete tasks online via simple voice commands. Now we don’t even need to click a button to make things happen, how delightful.
