Show Notes

This week on the Atlas Podcast we discuss the new Advanced Research and Invention Agency (ARIA). We also dive into how various innovation funders around the world function, why they're there and what their goals are.

We chat with Barry Maybank, CDO of the MTC, about what role the MTC and other research technology organisations (RTOs) play in innovation. We also look at how bringing ideas into manufacturing from other industries enhances innovation.

Finally, we're joined by our colleague Darren Hull, Cloud Architect, to discuss the ins and outs of how micro and nano services talk to each other, why that's important and how it helps our software.
