• Talk by Toby Abel (CTO at Krzana, The Newsgathering Engine)
Toby is a technology entrepreneur and strategist. He has built the products, development teams and strategies for AI-driven startups across business sectors; from events, to technology, education, recruitment, fashion and now news. With some significant successes under his belt (Befittd sold 2016, Beamery is being widely lauded as the next big HR success) as well as a healthy dose of failure (Planitt closed 2012 returning investors' funds), and having spent his entire childhood embedded in the news industry, he is uniquely positioned to perceive and guide the future of journalism. Really though, he just loves building things that work beautifully.
