Where are we going with new generation automation technologies?

Empirical learnings focusing on value creation and human role

Recently, mobility service sector experiences different changes represented by CASE: Connected, Autonomous, Shared, and Electrified. For example, autonomous driving is a representative social implementation of so-called “Artificial Intelligence”. Car-sharing service and ride-share service with dynamic pricing are enabled thanks to the diffusion of smartphone. As a result, a new business model like Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform emerges and this may promote a shift from personally-owned modes of transportation towards mobility provided as a service. A common component across these innovative services is that there is an automation somewhere as a driver of innovation. The introduction of next generation automation technologies is not limited to the mobility service sector since new generation automation technologies can process not-purely-numeric data such as image, human voice, natural language text and biological data.

Big things have small beginnings

The main objective of this workshop is to address the fundamental question of the relation between technology and human. How do Connectivity Technologies* redefine the human role? How do CTs transform the value creation process? Is there any specific necessity in stakeholder management? How can CTs change the competitive environment? By answering these questions, this workshop aims at prefiguring the opportunities and challenges towards technology-oriented business model innovation.
