The (R)evolution of Movement
In mobility, everything is being reinvented right now. Car makers are moving from combustion engines to electric ones, as the industry is also heading for autonomous driving. Meanwhile, the sharing economy is offering new ways to get around without ever owning a vehicle. And how about flying to your destination in an air taxi? That’s not a vision from the distant future anymore – the first passenger drones are already being tested in different countries around the world.
This DLD All Stars session brings together Marc Berg, CEO of mobility service Free Now, and Volocopter CEO Florian Reuter to discuss the many possibilities opening up in the future of mobility. Their conversation was moderated by Tabitha Goldstaub of CognitionX.
Tabitha is Co-Founder of CognitionX, an AI Advice Platform which connects organizations with a global network of AI experts. She is also Director of CogX, the Festival of AIl Things AI, which in June 2018 brought together over 300 speakers and 6,500 members of the AI community to discuss the Impact of AI.
