Thousands of mobile “mini-masts” are to be attached to lamp-posts all over London in a huge push to make the capital the most advanced “hot-spot city” in the Western world. The brick-sized devices — minaturised versions of the tall masts that currently deliver mobile signals — will support the next generation of super high speed 5G networks in the early 2020s.
It could signal the end of the infuriating “unexpected item in the bagging area” alert…A checkout designed to scan an entire basket or trolley’s worth of shopping in one go is being trialled in London. The centrepiece of IBM’s “shop of the future” is said to be 15 times faster than standard self-service checkouts. The system could also render traditional barcodes obsolete as each shopping item has a tiny “radio frequency identification” chip embedded in it containing much more information.
Facial recognition technology which is normally used to tag people in online photos after a night out is being trialled to help save elephants. London Zoo and Google have teamed up to teach new artificial intelligence software to analyse pictures of endangered animals snapped by automatic cameras hidden in the wild. It means herd numbers can be monitored and conservationists or rangers alerted if poachers are spotted.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
