Software that checks your health by looking at you and an AI that monitors your hormone levels are among several Southampton startups set to demo at London Tech Week.

The Future Worlds Demo Day on 12th June will showcase the businesses supported by the tech startup accelerator at the University of Southampton.

The event is a chance for the University’s very best startups to share their stories, pitch their ideas to investors and unveil the very latest ideas that are set to change the world – and for investors to get a first look at the latest emerging tech.
