Advances in software sensor networks and big data are transforming the concept of autonomous vehicles into a viable reality.
According to an August 2013 report by Navigant Research, sales of driverless vehicles are expected to surpass 95.4 million by 2035 representing 75% of all light-duty vehicle sales. Unfathomable? Think again!
With increased congestion in the metropolis, distributed networks of autonomous vehicles have the potential to disrupt a tried and tested business model of 130 years which will impact an existing ecosystem of automobile manufacturers, dealers, servicers, financers, insurers and car-for-hire service providers.
- What new business models will emerge around autonomous vehicles?
- Which industry players will be displaced by this disruption and which startups will rise to the top?
- What will the ‘commodification’ of cars bring?
Join us on Tuesday, November 19th, to learn more about the new platforms that are being developed by entrepreneurs and technology companies alike for a world of distributed, autonomous vehicles.

ENERGY = INNOVATION: 10 DISRUPTIVE TECHNOLOGIES
Date: Wednesday, November 20th
Time: 6:30pm ‘til 8:30pm
Location: University Club, 800 Powell Street, San Francisco
Cost: $25 for Members, $35 for non-members
(Includes hors d'oeuvres. Cash bar will be available.)
Dartmouth Silicon Valley (@daasv) is pleased to present the Dartmouth Thought Leader Series. This session features Adrian Booth and McKinsey & Company’s latest insights on Energy = Innovation: 10 Disruptive Technologies.
The world is approaching a tipping point in the development of energy technologies that could generate increases in energy productivity on a scale not seen since the Industrial Revolution. Most of the technologies that could prove disruptive are familiar—including unconventional gas, electric vehicles, solar, and lighting from light-emitting diodes (LEDs)—yet many managers will be surprised when they arrive. The accelerating pace of energy innovation means that some technologies will achieve commercial viability much faster than most observers expect—in some cases, the shift could begin as early as 2015.
6:30pm Registration & networking reception
