Business Advisor in Analytics for Manufacturing & Automotive
SAS Institute Nordic
When everything goes connected and autonomous, the possibilities goes exponential. Way beyond our human capabilities. Machine Learning and other analytics techniques will help us realize the values. That is why I choosed to work with SAS Institute 4 years ago, after having spent some 20 years in leading roles within sales, marketing, R&D and quality development in large, global manufacturing organizations like Danfoss and Toyota. Autonomous Driving is fascinating. It will change many parts of our daily lives. It will influence even more areas. Some months ago, I wrote a blog article about ethic aspects within Self-driving Cars.
