Complex Systems Makes a Difference

Virgin Hyper Loop – Creating the first major new mode of transport in more than a century.

With speeds three times faster than high-speed rail, hyperloop reduces a 300 km commute to under 20 minutes. Our systems engineering and enterprise architecture experts delivered the complex software and traffic control systems that were needed. We implemented a high-speed transport portal that acts as a central hub, integrating with all nearby transport modes to enable a seamless, end-to-end journey.

The WePROTECT Global Alliance acts as a focus for worldwide efforts to end online child sexual abuse and exploitation. By focusing on the scale and pace of global internet penetration, we identified the widening gap between those nations who have had the time to evolve sophisticated support services in step with their technical evolution and those who are leaping to technology parity faster than their legal mechanisms, education and child protection preparations can keep pace. We collaborated with international governments, law enforcement agencies, the technology industry and civil society organisations to produce a global, publicly available analysis of the scale and nature of the threat facing children online.
