Getting real-time insights on driving patterns could disrupt how automotive manufacturers compete, build, market and offer cars in the next decade and beyond. Note that I didn’t use the word “sell” which I think is fast becoming the old way of doing business – “pushing” products to consumers i.e “build it and they will come” strategy will simply not work as consumerization takes hold
A recent report from Center for Automotive Research, pegged…

This is very scary: you visit a web site on an infected computer, and suddenly all the ads (e.g. about data science conferences) are replaced by irrelevant, crappy ads (e.g. about weight loss).
