As multiple modes of transportation connect to one another to make moving from A to B smarter, reflect on how the ecosystem relationships between the operators, tech companies and automakers will evolve.

  • With monopolies dominating mobility in every region of the world, how do you create an ecosystem where every form of mobility benefits? Whether it be public transport, bikes, or ridesharing/hailing.
  • Technology and cities need to interconnect. Without the proper infrastructure in place, the autonomous future could be chaotic. How do cities, entrepreneurs and businesses alike align in order to make this ecosystem not just autonomous but also efficient
  • As we tackle both the public and private sector/partnerships, discuss how to effectively finance & deliver projects without losing sight of the key question: what is in the best interest of the consumer and why?

Monopolies rarely benefit consumers and often create barriers and limitations by asserting control as to when, where, how and the cost for people to move from A to B. This does not seem like a winning equation for consumers. The future of mobility, to truly function at its greatest efficiency, must be an open market. All mobility service providers should not only be armed with the opportunity, but also the tools & technology to succeed, because that will be how we build a mobility future that is healthy and robust for mobility providers and consumers.

All of the major OEMs are currently developing autonomous technologies and solutions for their future generations of vehicle. These technologies introduce new cyber security vulnerabilities, some of which require creative assessment techniques to effectively provide cyber security assurance.

  • Creative techniques are used to manipulate different combinations of sensor data in an attempt to confuse the onboard sensor fusion technology
  • Adversarial Machine Learning approaches are used to try and “brainwash” the vehicle so it is learning incorrect information, which may result in the vehicle performing actions that may negatively impact safety

Workshop: Mining social media data for better CX driven outcomes
  • Tania Benade - Head of Analytics, BrandsEye
  • Matt Robertson - Senior Account Director UK & Africa, BrandsEye

To understand the customer journey and to attempt to close the ever-widening expectation gap, between promise and delivery, companies need to find more powerful ways to structure and analyse their data. This is especially true for social media data – a source of volunteered public opinion – which until now, has proved almost impossible to accurately mine, let alone to extract a genuine return on investment. By integrating artificial with human intelligence, organisations are now able to accurately structure data at scale for sentiment and topics, allowing them to make strategic customer experience interventions.

The session will look at social media data from various industries including banking and retail unpack the key drivers of public sentiment across the customer experience journey.
