The Future of Growth in Mobility: AI Comes of Age
A new factor of technology is on the mobility horizon, and it promises to transform the mobility industry and economic growth like nothing before. Why are we still struggling to harness the value and where are the opportunities?
AI is, without question, is the single most disruptive technology the world has experienced since the Industrial Revolution. However, while AI has generated justified energy and excitement in the mobility space - its core promises are still arguably 30+ year old concepts destined to fail before prime time. Challenges include C-suite support, ethical and legal issues with the use of connected and/or autonomous systems, end-user distrust in reasoning, errors and biases, the rise of inadvertent side effects, and how to implement end to end security. To really enable mobility adoption, AI not only needs to work but also drive value which also means addressing the “data” problem. Join Accenture’s Monika Minarcin as she shares her take on developing and implementing the successful AI scenarios for mobility – today and in the future.
