“Connected Car at Jaguar Land Rover – The brains and the brawn”
Drivers and passengers increasingly expect to be able to carry over their digital experiences seamlessly to their cars. For vehicles such as Land Rover’s brand new Defender, going everyone means being always connected. Seamless software updates, global eSIM 4G connectivity, leading-edge infotainment systems and large-scale data platforms are all part of the solutions Jaguar Land Rover are bringing to their vehicles. This talk will cover some of the technologies that enable the UK’s leading premium car brand to deliver a globally connected car solution.

“NVIDIA: Autonomous Objects Made Easy”
From self-driving cars to fully automated factories and predictive maintenance, even the Alexa in your home, there is no doubt that the smart revolution is here and revolutionise our world, but how do we actually turn the art of the possible into something tangible, and quickly? In this session we’ll explore the work that NVIDIA are doing to accelerate the development and deployment of AI & robotics though a single platform that can take you from training in the data centre to deploying at the edge.
Isaac George, SVP & Head of European Operations, Happiest Minds Technologies
“Enhanced Customer Experience Connected Car Ecosystem”
The Connected Car experience is one that leverages technologies to aggregate disparate services and which enhances the experience of the customer in a seamless manner based on the unique insight of the customer such that it is not just their journey from point A to B but the ability of the ecosystem to intuitively deliver elements ranging from services across the lifecycle of not just the car journey but to create an experience spanning the entire car ownership. The Services span:
i. within the car like car health and entertainment ii. services along the journey like transport/route options, parking options, food/gas, doing chores on your journey iii. Car as your Postbox with smart access to deliver packages, controlling other connected devices remotely. iv. Automated compliance to rules and regulations.
Alice Grant & Jenny Kelly, Computer Futures
“Women in Tech”
Increasing gender diversity within the Technology Sector and topics such as returning to work after maternity breaks and why the UK still has an extensive gender disparity. They will also be discussing what SThree have done over the years with their own Mind The Gap campaign and how this has benefited their own business and clients within the STEM industry.
