Our CEO attended and pitched at the largest mobility conference in North America earlier this month, the Tech In Motion Conference in Detroit. The TIM Conference was a gathering of leaders and innovators in the mobility industry. It showcased advancements in automotive technology, products and services, along with hosting a pitch competition for startups.
Mycroft pitched in the connected cars category, and took home the gold.
We explained to a crowd of consumers and big name companies alike why open source is the answer. Open source software underpins everything from fitness trackers to automobiles, and Mycroft is positioned to be the go-to choice natural language platform.
Think things like customization and data independence. That’s the open source advantage.
We’re looking forward to the day when a Mycroft enabled car will let you ask “what is the tire pressure in the front right tire” and receive a natural response - “42 PSI”
