Enabling AI-Augmented and Software-Defined Vehicles
In this talk, we will review why we need to embrace AI technologies for the safety and comfort of vehicles. We will justify why and how we enable software-defined vehicles and why the supply chains in the auto industry will be disrupted. We will reveal how’s the computation (and software) framework look like for the near-new vehicles. We will also elaborate on the challenges and possible strategies to embed AI technologies into automotive solutions. We will demonstrate how MobileDrive, the new joint venture between Foxconn and Stellantis (#4 automaker in the world), will deliver advanced and personalized vehicle solutions in the seamlessly integrated and brand-new platform across ADAS, smart cockpit, and connected services. Most of all, we will hypothesize the possible opportunities and challenges for the new graduates and TW's ICT industry.
