Event Overview:

Our mobility and transportation is poised for more change in the next five to ten years than it’s seen in the past 100 years.  The most basic paradigm of “Will you be driving the car?” or “Will the car be driving you?” is going to change.  We are on the verge of realizing Hollywood’s imagination of the cars from Total Recall or Back to the Future movies.

The vehicles and its ecosystems of the future will be smarter. They will be increasingly intelligent, inter-connected and instrumented. They will ultimately communicate, socialize and collaborate with each other, including other vehicles, traffic lights, parking bays and retailers, thereby becoming an entirely new platform to change the paradigm of how we transport ourselves and everything else.

This new platform will bring forth an array of digital services created out of the vast amounts of data this connectivity will unleash, just as smartphones changed the world in the last 10 years.  They will reinvent existing business models, create new models, change the entire ecosystem and redesign customer engagement and expectations.

Please join us and find out where the future is going with a keynote from Dr. Paul Jacobs, Executive Chairman, Qualcomm Corporation, and a renowned panel of industry experts from the automotive industry led by Pradeep Khosla, Chancellor, UCSD.
