Show Notes

From Mercedes Benz USA to Cox Automotive to Big Media, the #StopAsianHate campaign has forced many to speak out against the anti-Asian sentiment that has been permeating in our culture. In particular, there was a report that many have cited to support the anti-Asian sentiment, Stop AAPI Hate National Report. Upon scrutinizing and analyzing the data, it is very incomplete and certainly not a report that we should be basing policy or even organizational decisions on. The data is a good starting point, and we need the proficiency and competency of data scientists to help discern what is important, what is not important, and what are we missing. 

If indeed there is an anti-Asian sentiment in the United States (and beyond), then we need to raise the bar of the data collection process. We need to improve the surveys to produce more accurate results. We need to collaborate with other entities and data sets to produce more meaningful data.

Be better with data. Do better with data. So we can make better decisions.

Redefining Mobility in a Dealership feat. Sam Baker

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] The term 'mobility' often takes on different definitions depending on the context. According to cities, mobility is associated with the movement of people and goods. Movement of people and goods on scooters or ebikes are defined as micromobility. In a dealership environment, mobility has been traditionally reserved for disabled persons. Think of a van which has been gutted on the interior for wheelchair access, or where the suspension has been modified in order to bring the van closer to the ground for the installation of a ramp. In order to understand how mobility is being redefined at a dealership, it is best to take a macro view of the technology platform on real-world applications. On episode #91, we hear from Sam Baker, Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of Wunder Mobility. Wunder has a variety of mobility solutions for real-world applications, and understanding how a single technology platform can solve these problems better communicates how the term mobility will be redefined in a dealership.
