Show Notes

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Co-host of the Podcast, Kelly Cruz, set out for another car buying journey. Her notoriety on the show is that she is a habitual leaser and shrewd negotiator. Her time as co-host has introduced her to companies and their technologies like Roadster, Autogravity, Dealer Socket, and Automotive Mastermind, to name a few. She's heard the voices of dealer executives discuss how their operation align with the customer experience. And she, like most other working mothers, wants viable solutions to vehicle and infrastructure safety for her children through connected mobility. BUT...she still likes material possessions, and in this case, she likes buying, driving and riding in nice cars. December is always a big month for automotive retailers, and the automotive industry as a whole, as many car buyers want to buy that shiny new toy to show off, or just spend that extra Christmas bonus on something new (clinically, they call it "retail therapy").  If you are in the market for a car this month, tune into this episode to hear: [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Be Better with Data, Do Better with Data. My Response to #StopAsianHate Campaign.

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.     Notes  |  Resources Stop AAPI Hate Report  | Link FBI Crime Statistics  |  Link   ***** Wisco Weekly *****By Automotive Executives, For Automotive Entrepreneurs Founder and Host, Dennis Wisco, takes his Business Class listeners through the culture and society of automotive business.

Cities Left Behind in Their Transportation Future feat. Avery Ash

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Cities do not want to be left behind in this mobility revolution. With the rise of micromobility and autonomous vehicles, all of which use the public infrastructure, cities are being challenged on how to manage these new forms of transportation. Should they impose new regulations or will private companies opt to share data for the public benefit? Avery Ash, Head of Autonomous Mobility for Inrix, shares how their latest product aims to keep cities cooperative in this mobility society by allowing them to better track and communicate their data back out to the private sector.
