    As DevOps Technical Lead at Virgin Atlantic, Martyn Coupland has two primary responsibilities. First, he is one of the subject matter experts for the airline’s Microsoft Azure platform and the subject matter expert for the Azure toolset which enables its DevOps program.

    In addition to the technical legwork, Martyn also provides expertise “around the softer side of DevOps” - in other words, the people and process side of things: “As technology changes, people change and processes change. DevOps will always be here to ensure all three sit together and provide real value,” he explains. “This allows not just technology teams at Virgin Atlantic but other parts of the business to adopt DevOps methodologies.”

    In August 2019, Russian media reports began to emerge that orphans were being brought to summer camps in Lithuania and taught to kill. The catch? The story wasn’t true – it was ‘fake news’. Although summer camps do exist in Lithuania (as they do the world over), the young attendees weren’t being taught warfare techniques.

    Misinformation campaigns have long been used by hostile governments against enemies and competitors, yet in the past few years the problem of ‘fake news’ has grown dramatically in scale. Facilitated by social media, it’s easier than ever to spread lies and confusion online. But concerned citizens are starting to take a stand - and they’re using AI to help.
