The Korea Times - - BUSINESS - By Kwak Yeon-soo [email protected]­re­atimes.co.kr

Black­Berry vowed to ex­pand its pres­ence in the au­to­mo­tive soft­ware mar­ket by de­ploy­ing in­fra­struc­ture for elec­tric ve­hi­cles and au­tonomous ve­hi­cles, the com­pany said Wednesday.

Un­der the topic “The Es­sen­tial Role Safety and Se­cu­rity Play in Korea’s Au­to­mated Fu­ture,” Black­Berry Tech­nol­ogy So­lu­tion Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent of Sales Kaivan Karimi shared some of the mega trends for 2050 and stressed the im­por­tance of soft­ware and its se­cu­rity.

Fu­ture mega trends in­clude de­mo­graphic change, ac­cel­er­at­ing ur­ban­iza­tion and tech­no­log­i­cal break­throughs in­clud­ing ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence (AI), ma­chine learn­ing (ML), In­ter­net of Things (IoT), au­tonomous trans­porta­tion and ad­vances in elec­tric ve­hi­cle tech­nol­ogy. “As ev­ery­thing be­comes soft­ware, the safety, se­cu­rity and real-time de­ter­min­is­tic performanc­e of the soft­ware are be­com­ing more im­por­tant,” Karimi said dur­ing the press brief­ing.

“AI and ML have a ma­jor role to play in se­cur­ing au­to­mo­tive soft­ware lead­er­ship.”

Black­Berry QNX is one of the ma­jor play­ers in au­to­mo­tive func­tional safety and se­cu­rity. QNX soft­ware is now em­bed­ded in more than 150 mil­lion cars on the road, ac­cord­ing to the com­pany.
