We discuss Tanja’s keynote, “Vision or Reality? Intuitive, Intelligent and Integrated Buildings.”
We discuss the 2 key themes of BCW 2020 – addressing Global Warming / Sustainability and the intersection of AI and IoT, creating AIoT. In addition, Dirk discusses the launch of Bosch’s AI Code of Ethics – a set of guidelines that govern how Bosch will use AI with its intelligent products.
25:10 Thomas Jakob, Regional President Asia Pacific, Bosch.IO
We discuss the recent rebranding of Bosch Software Innovations to Bosch.IO. What is it and what has changed?
Building a successful IoT business in Asia Pacific isn’t easy, but Bosch Software Innovations has done just that.
In this podcast, I speak with Thomas Jakob, Regional President for Asia Pacific, to find out how Bosch developed their impressive IoT solutions portfolio.
What I found most interesting is that while many tech vendors drive innovation by acquiring innovative companies, Bosch has built many of their own custom solutions – and partnered with start-ups to jointly develop others – to meet the diverse local requirements of the Asia Pacific market.
We hear about the importance of the “localisation” of solutions – Bosch in Asia Pacific is the perfect example of how it should be delivered.
(Note: In January 2020, Bosch Software Innovations was renamed Bosch.IO)

35:20 The fun questions
The world of proptech, smart buildings, and the Internet of Things (IoT) is a dynamic place as these overlapping technologies find their feet in this 4th industrial revolution. It pays to know someone “in the know,” so this week Memoori spoke to IoT & proptech industry thought leader Charles Reed Anderson.
I joined Bernard Leong of Analyse Asia to discuss the state of PropTech in Asia Pacific where we broke down the real estate supply chain and discussed the key trends which are disrupting the real estate industry. We examined how user experience and business model disruption are driving the current innovations in PropTech (e.g. Wework) and how the traditional real estate players such as CBRE and JLL are tackling the challenges ahead. Last but not least, I explained why the Asian counterparts in multi-national real estate companies are driving more innovation in PropTech compared to their US and European counterparts.
