Dear Students, 

Happy Sunday!

This week Weekly Wednesday LiveQ&A, my student  Renee Manneh, spoke to us about AV Operators and Testing  at our Weekly Wednesday LiveQ&A.

I am on a quest to get us all the details of how the car is becoming a software on wheels and what are the job roles in testing the AV, collecting the data and sending it back to the AI Engineers to train the AI and get us to Level 5.

You can see Renee sharing her experience as AV Operator at Waymo and and what are the job roles in AV Operation and testing in Livestreamed Lessons archive of our Weekly Wednesday sessions.

Here's the Tweet thread of our Weekly Wednesday Live, feel free to add a tweet.

Next Weekly Wednesday topic is AV Perception and Maps.

News Articles:

1. Car companies eager to replace rear and side view mirrors with Cameras (Read here).

Reply to this email or tweet me on this thread with your answer to why is this beneficial to car OEMs.

Europe and Japan have approved this already. Toyota Lexus ES in Japan has camera for side mirrors and Audi e-tron will sell in Europe with cameras from December. NHTSA has an open comment period for this in US.

2.  Tesla has expanded into Auto Insurance but says they will not use car data about user behavior. What do you this is the strategic reason for this move? (Good analysis by Justin Bariso)

I started our Weekly Wednesday LiveQ&A to share educational material about AV Business, AV data, b-models and smart mobility. In the past 3 months, we have built out a focused discussion about mobility jobs in Product Management, Business Development, Design, and more. Join our weekly Wednesday sessions on Livestreamed Lessons on DriverlessWorldSchool. Pass it onto friends interested in AV space as we have 18 hrs of weekly sessions as a monthly membership at $9/momth (can cancel anytime too).

3. Remember Aleksander Poniewiersky of E&Y who spoke at our class about Value from IoT Data? He has published a new book called "Speed" which is about how the time is ripe for a cascade effect of innovations in companies.

4.  David Stephenson has an article about his "Circular Economy" concept about how companies are becoming circular in terms of process flow and communication (instead of top down) because of data being shared internally. (here) I have interviewed David earlier on The IoT show if you want to checkout what is "Circular Company."

Need your input: Should I host a Tweet chat with David and Aleksander on this topic? I would like to hear about what industries are seeing the speed of innovation cascade, driven by data sharing as companies become circular.
Let me know ok?
