The BBC is launching a brand new technologies newsletter for international audiences, referred to as Tech Decoded.

Tech news is not a speciality any far more. It is just the news. AI, social media drama, Elon Musk’s newest proclamations – it really is all mainstream. But it differs from other varieties of news in 1 essential way.

A wiser colleague than I, who covered the technologies beat for years, as soon as told me that editors often want an “iPhone moment”, exactly where a person walks out on a stage and reveals a brand new invention that will transform our lives.

That can occur, but it really is not ordinarily how the business operates.

Take the present AI boom as an instance. The technologies behind ChatGPT was getting created for years ahead of the present craze – and that is why GPT was currently on version three.five by the time most individuals heard of it.

There is a a great deal deeper improvement cycle that goes on ahead of main providers commence tacking the newest buzzword on every single solution they make. That is been accurate for all the tech hype cycles in current years, no matter whether it really is “the algorithm”, blockchain, web3, or what ever else.

The truth is that main technologies shifts are typically gradual, created up of dozens of smaller sized stories more than time. Staying on leading of these trends is how you remain in the know.

And the BBC is uniquely positioned in that globe. Yes, we’re tuned in to the newest happenings in Silicon Valley — but we’ve a network of professionals about the globe, in Singapore, Bangalore, and beyond, rivalled by extremely couple of other organisations on the planet.

One thing we’re keen to do with Tech: Decoded is to bring in viewpoints from all types of locations, from individuals who cover these beats.

With their assist, we’ll decode the newest tech trends, searching for what it suggests and the agenda behind the story, or showcasing new perspectives and evaluation from about the globe.

When you sign up, it’ll be delivered to your inbox twice a week:

  • On Monday, our North America tech reporter James Clayton will bring you the view from California and what you require to know about the week ahead – with his insights on what matters.
  • And then to round off the week on Friday, we’ll bring you a viewpoint from 1 of our worldwide professionals about a tech subject in the news – or possibly 1 that is escaped the headlines.

I will be joined by a modest editorial group – Nicholas Barrett and Will Smale – and we cannot wait to provide our initial edition to your inbox.
