Gadgets & Gizmos: AI job interviewers
Steve Caplin laments the arrival of AI job interviewers at Unilever, while an Estonian company is using AI for workers after a pay rise. You could get £100,000 to be the face of a series of humanoid robots, get a camera drone to direct part of your movie, play an app game in real-world streets, trim your hedges and garden with a new device, get an ebike with facial recognition unlocking or order the tallest and widest business jet ever.

The Bigger Picture: The General Election, Keith Vaz and a new speaker
Political commentator Mike Indian looks at how the general election he predicted at the beginning of the year finally came about, at some of the MPs who are standing down (and some who aren't) and at the departure of John Bercow as Speaker. He discusses the suspension of Keith Vaz, the most severe ever that will have no effect thanks to the election. And he looks at which might happen when the country goes to the polls.
