292: Using A.I. To Manage Traffic with Parquery CEO Andrea Fossati


There’s a lot of buzz around A.I. and what the future holds… but what about its potential to change today’s problems? All of us deal with traffic in our cars and there are A.I. systems already in place around the World helping to solve this issue. One such company is Switzerland based Parquery. Johnny speaks with CEO & Co-Founder Andrea Fossati to find out how they’re able to help better control the flow of traffic both at intersections and in parking management. Then Johnny and Derek reflect on the good and bad traffic systems they’ve encountered around the world and how they’d execute Parquery’s technology to optimize profitability.
