So what exactly is the “3-2-1 podcast”? It includes 3 interviews with IoT industry leaders recorded over the 2 days of Bosch Connected World 2020 in Berlin – all in 1 podcast.

Episode Notes:

01:40 Tanja Rueckert, CEO & President of Bosch Building Technologies

We discuss Tanja’s keynote, “Vision or Reality? Intuitive, Intelligent and Integrated Buildings.”

19:25 Dirk Slama, Vice President Co-Innovation and IoT Alliances, Bosch.IO

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)
