After his opening talk, Anderson hosts Hoda in a look at “Technology Driving Cars: What’s Driving Their Economics?” Get in on a groundbreaking near-future trend before anyone else sees it – why autonomous electric vehicles have become a key strategic asset for national business models, whether cars are replacing mobile as the central technology platform, and how cars as a platform enable innovation across AI, computing, 5G & connectivity, energy, materials science, computer vision, and infrastructure.
