Property search provider SearchFlow has welcomed last week’s publication of the review into hydraulic fracturing (fracking) by the Royal Society and the Royal Academy of Engineering.

Richard Hinton, business development director at SearchFlow, said there are still further issues which require consideration and many unanswered questions as regards the impact on properties within the vicinity.

“House buyers are ever more concerned as to the environmental factors that can affect their enjoyment of a property,” he said. “Any potential blight that can be investigated has a value to house buyers. ‘Fracking’ will surely fall into this category and we would expect there to be a demand for searches that identified areas either licensed or which otherwise are suitable for this purpose.”

Woebots and robots

Nadia chatbot

The chances are that you may not be entirely sure what a bot or a chatbot is. So, the news that, “starting today, DoNotPay is opening up so that anyone can create legal bots for free (with no technical knowledge)” may be a bit opaque. But bots have their devotees. The picture is of Nadia, an Australian bot being developed to give information on disability benefits with the voice of Cate Blanchett. The editor of Chatbots Magazine (OK, no neutral source) is pretty clear about their future. He writes articles with titles like ‘How bots will completely kill websites and mobile apps’. Joshua Browder, the creator of the DoNotPay parking ticket challenger, is behind what he hopes will be this major expansion of legal bots.
