As the first day of Viva Technology comes to an end, the HUB Institute shares with you the 5 quotes to remember from this Wednesday's conferences. Also make sure to watch the interviews of the most innovative startups we have met, and the best photos of the day.
Top 5 quotes of the day
“We have a virtuous triangle, between consumers, regulators and technology. To the consumers, we have to bring excitement and joy. We need regulators to create new streets and gain the ability to extend this technology. If these go together, we can bring out the new cities.” Lawrence Leuschner, CEO and founder (Tier Mobility)
“In the automotive industry, full autonomy, let’s say level 4 or above, is going to take some time, especially to also be a financially relevant opportunity. But assisted driving, that should not be any different from seatbelts, sensors, radars... The car is helping you drive to create a safe environment. This is a real opportunity that is starting to get scaled right now. We have to help companies install this technology in every car.” Cristiano Amon, CEO (Qualcomm)
“We are talking about instant logistics: none of our customers cares about drones but they want their delivery immediately. People think drone delivery is the future but they’re already there. (…) We are seeing part of this change. Drones are part of this change, but autonomy has the key role. The industry will change significantly to be able to achieve the national scale.” Jo Mardall, Head of Engineering (Zipline)
“Customers now are expecting the largest tech companies to be sustainable, to provide IT equipment that meet the requirements. They’re also asking us to advise them on how they can reduce their own emissions. I think that goes for you no matter what business you’re in. How can you take the lead? How can you advise customers?” Louise Koch Director, Global Sustainability Strategy & Innovation (Dell Technologies)
“How to secure your company? First, you need to identify, understand the critical assets. This is the key first step, the deep understanding of your assets as you cannot protect what you don’t see. Second, make proper security controls and regulations. Not only detecting intrusions, but also all the updates of your digital product. Finally, be ready for the unexpected.” Zeina Zakhour, Global CTO for Digital Security (Atos)
