Powering the Ultimate Smart Driving Machine with Machine Learning

Abstract: Cars are now connected to the internet and car manufacturers are becoming more like software companies, shifting focus from traditional hardware platforms towards the software and services platform, leveraging scalable cloud computing with machine learning and IoT. The car is not just about going from point A to point B anymore, but rather delivering a holistic experience that revolves around the activities in our daily lives. What are the challenges and opportunities that big data and machine learning can address? Learn what BMW is doing with machine learning to address the challenges of journey management, integrating daily activities into the car, and performing preventative automotive maintenance, to make the car become The Ultimate Smart Driving Machine.
