On July 12th, Movimento CTO Mahbubul Alam appeared on the Peggy Smedley Show to talk about the future of the IoT in the automotive industry. Alam and his host discussed concerns that consumers might have when their cars become fully connected, especially in the wake of self-driving accidents and security breaches. Alam held that consumers have a right to be concerned when it comes to privacy, safety, and cybersecurity and suggested ways for the automotive industry to address these issues.
“When it comes to human safety versus complexity, human safety takes the prominent role.”
– Mahbubul Alam, Movimento CTO
Smedley is a leading expert on the Internet of Things and believes that, while it can used for great good, it does present danger. Her motto is “With great technology comes great responsibility,” an idea reflected in the interview. It is up to those creating new technology to make sure it is used responsibly, a goal that Movimento works toward every day.
