Tech company v Car manufacturer: Who would you rather trust to make your driverless car?
You may think driverless cars are a terrible idea, but you may also think they’re an ingenious idea. Whichever way you think, car manufacturers are heading in this direction, and the most well-known tech giants want a piece of the action too. But who would you rather trust to make your driverless car? A tech company or your favourite car manufacturer? Auto Trader's Operations Director, Nathan Coe, joined Nigel Cassidy on Share Radio Breakfast to discuss the future of the industry. Nathan also offered comment on the big news of the day – the agreed deal between PSA Group and General Motors.

UK tech visa applications on the up – James Brydges looks into the driving demand
Applications from foreign workers who want to work in the UK tech industry have increased tenfold over the last year. It's after the government decided to relax the rules, allowing groups of coders to apply as a group rather than run the risk of being rejected individually. Tech City UK, the organisation that processes the visa applications, says applications had spiked since the Brexit referendum. James Brydges asked Oliver Smith, tech reporter at the Memo, and Megan Caywood, Chief Platform Officer at Starling bank, about what had been driving the demand.

Scottish cyber security software specialist ZoneFox is one company using machine-learning to monitor internal business computer activity and flag up threats. Matt Cox spoke to Dr Jamie Graves, the CEO of ZoneFox, to find out more.
