Logistics conference on 24 November 2018 in Bangalore

Logistics as a domain is rapidly evolving, as we try to solve the problem of how to move humans and vehicles, seamlessly. The first edition of the conference will cover talks and discussions on fleet management and shared mobility.

This edition of the Logistics conference will bring together product managers, business decision-makers, data scientists and representatives from municipalities and transportation. We will discuss the following topics at the conference:

  • Operational challenges with fleet management, and how these are being addressed with data and product development.
  • Solutions for on-demand availability of vehicles to participate in a ride-sharing networks.
  • “Shared mobility” — how various players in the mobility space, including cab aggregators, carpooling, metros, buses, shuttles, etc can come together to complement each other rather than compete.
  • Sparsity of data for spatio-temporal granularity
  • India-specific challenges in traffic management, congestion and address standardisation.
  • AI-based solutions in transportation space.

The Fifth Elephant Winter edition on 8 December, in Mumbai:

The winter edition of The Fifth Elephant will focus on analytics, and issues around data quality and governance.

Analytics is crucial for every organization from a business and growth perspective. How do you inculcate and encourage “thinking with data” in your organization? We will address this topic with case studies from media, finance and related domains. The Winter edition will also expose participants to innovations and tooling for enabling super users of data in organisations and for business teams.

You should attend and/or speak at the Winter edition if your work involves:

  • analytics/building analytics dashboards
  • product development based on analytical data
  • decision science
  • data quality and governance
