Fall in love with the problem, not the solution.
- Uri Levine
At and&, we are building an interdisciplinary space where bright minds bow their heads over 21 questions for the 21st century.
100 years ago, when people were asked what the future would look like, they predicted that we’d be at the steering wheel of self-driving cars, flying taxis and amphibious vehicles. Although some inventions might happen sooner than we think, we’re certainly not there. Yet.
Mobility deals with more than just the evolution of our vehicles. During the Covid19 pandemic, we saw that we can avoid mass-transportation to some extent. Queuing in a traffic jam doesn't make much sense, when better alternatives exist. The bigger question remains: how can we evolve mobility into a future-proof model that aligns with our difficult climate challenges? And in what ways are we going to see those changes?
Many of you might not have heard of Uri Levine, but almost all of you will have used his incredible invention Waze. Uri is a passionate serial entrepreneur and disruptor. He co-founded Waze in 2007 and turned it into the largest traffic -and navigation app in the world, purely based on crowdsourcing. Countless hours were saved thanks to his vision, that is intended to disrupt inefficient markets and improve under-functioning services with a focus on solving BIG problems.
Anne-Marie Van Asbroeck is the project manager and program lead mobility & logistics at Imec. She is convinced that smart mobility is more than just fancy vehicles. Van Asbroeck investigates how to optimize the efficiency of city transport, how we can better adjust different modes of transport to one another. Discover in her talk how we can make our entire mobility system more sustainable and safe.
How about you? Can you imagine a future where the car is driving you instead of the other way around?
