DataTalks: Learn how we transform connected cars with data
Rullion is hosting a #datatalks event introducing wejo, pioneers in the exchange of connected car data, to the North West.
Join CEO, entrepreneur Richard Barlow, along with some of wejo's technical minds to find out how they are pioneering with data for global automotive brands. They'll share secrets they've learnt from over 8 million vehicles across the world and join forces to map out new ways to use big data to transform the driving experience.
If you work with data or building software, come and learn about one of the most exciting, fastest growing industries in the world, whilst networking with other technical experts. We’ll be running a short thinktank session at the end of the event, offering a raspberry pi to each member of our winning team!
