Talking Technology with NCBI Labs Podcasts

Live Event Podcasts returned in 2022 with a brand-new name – Talking Technology with NCBI Labs.

Launched in March last year and with over 60 podcasts recorded to date, show content ranges from lively and engaging chats and debates about the latest inclusive technology, interviews with developers about their latest innovations, Meet the Team interviews, Tech Tips, and Seeing it Your Way interviews where we speak with NCBI Service Users about how technology has enabled them by breaking down barriers, levelled the playing fields, and allowed them to live independently.

We have met with the creators and developers of certain technologies such as Saqib Sheikh (founder of Seeing AI), Glen Gordon (key architect behind JAWS) and Hans Wiberg (creator of Be My Eyes). We have also talked to popular YouTube figures such as Sam Seavey of The Blind Life and even a NASA technician!
