Futurice x SXSW
Thinking about how urban mobility will look like in the future makes the hearts of innovators and dreamers beat faster: Whether it is an aerodynamic vehicle flying you from A to B in a fractional amount of time or a cosy furnitured car that carries you to your next appointment while having breakfast with your friends inside. We don’t know for sure, how the future of transportation will look like - but it has to be more than an autonomous car that Knight Rider already had back in the 90s.
The role that emerging technologies like conversational AI might play in this, will also be a theme to be discussed at this year’s SXSW Conference in Austin.
Our Managing Director Helmut Scherer will join the panel discussion "K.I.T.T. is real - why Autonomous Vehicles are just not enough and how conversational AI changes the way we drive (not only for Knight Rider)" about voice car assistants on March 10th. In the German Haus he will share his view on the chances and challenges of urban mobility.
SXSW is one of the largest conference and festival mixture of music, art and media that one can find. It combines concerts, pitching-sessions, talks and panel discussions right in the city center of Austin and attracts thousands of visitors every year and we are very happy to be part of it!
So take your cowboy hat and meet us in Texas on March 10th to discuss our future mobility chances and challenges.
