10:00 am EST – Driving on Data: Role of Big Data in an Autonomous Future

A panel of experts on what is being described as “Big Data” have been looking at the future from the perspective of a huge amount of data that autonomous vehicles will generate and what effect the sheer volume of that information will have on society and individual users.

While concerns over privacy must not be overlooked, the “deep learning” that approaches taken by IBM and its Watson platform (one of the panelists being Sachin Lulla, a partner with IBM’s Internet of Things unit) promise to bring substantial societal benefits.

Another panelist was Intel’s Kathy Winter, who brings to her position experience at Delphi, another big player who has already developed a “stack” of autonomous driving software tools for OEMs to use in their development programs.

One of the key takeaways is that the developments that are ongoing, as demonstrated in a variety of partnerships being announced on an almost weekly basis, represent something of a tidal wave for a future that is rapidly coming together.

Heading the panel at AutoMobili-D was Gary Silberg, partner and National Automotive Leader with KPMG, one of several featured at this year’s 2017 North American International Auto Show.
