The second speaker of the evening was Henri Kujala, Chief Privacy Officer at HERE Technologies. HERE is an innovator in location-driven solutions, and Henri started his presentation by showcasing some of the applications they have worked on with the auto industry. There are already 4M+ cars out there with sensors gathering data eg on the road condition, with numbers rapidly rising.
The hot topic of the day, and the one raising the busiest discussion of our events sofar, was privacy and the upcoming GDPR. This is Henri’s special area of expertise, and obviously something crucial to take into account in location based services, so many practical examples and advice were shared.
