Volvo on artificial intelligence in the automotive industry

Ahead of the much-anticipated IS Auto Asia 2019 this September, we spoke to speak Mahabir Gupta, Solutions & Products Consultant - IoT, Mobility & Data Security at Volvo, to discuss the opportunities and challenges with using artificial intelligence in the automotive industry.

Q. Your presentation is on 'Artificial intelligence: boon or bane in the automotive industry', what can we expect to learn from your talk? 

The possibility of creating a thinking machine raises a host of opportunities and ethical issues. These questions relate both to ensuring that such machines do not harm humans and provide value to society. The presentation explores the opportunity of AI and the problem of creating AI more intelligent than humans, and ensuring that they use their advanced technology for good rather than ill.

Q. What do you see as the major challenges in the industry and how can this conference address them?

Personally what I feel is that the industry is not fully aware of opportunities and threats in the current market. Companies are not aware of what each other are working on and what  potential research is going on. This conference helps them to address the gaps and scale up the networking. 

Q. Which innovations in the industry are you most excited about at the moment? 

I believe that there is a huge revolution coming in the automotive industry where the vehicle can drive itself and pay its own fuel. The car can do their own maintenance. There would be a huge impact as a result of artificial intelligence in various sectors such as Healthcare, Automotive, Banking, Defence and many more.

Q. What are you most looking forward to hearing about at IS Auto Asia 2019? 

I am excited to hear about the revolutionary change in artificial intelligence.

Mahabir is presenting as part of the AI, Deep Learning and Simulation session this September. Other speakers in the session include XMotors, DELL EMC and more.

With such an exciting and informative event planned, can you afford to miss out?
