From the Inside Flap
Imagine a world where the data about a thing is more valuable than the thing itself. That world is closer than you may think. As cars, appliances, and other devices are equipped with sensors, you may be able to trade that data for money and drastically reduce the cost of purchasing just about anything. This has profound implications for the business of making cars and other things. It means that cars aren’t just cars anymore; they are vehicles for the delivery of data. The Zero Dollar Car is the story about the author’s own adventures at the intersection of data and cars. John Ellis, a global technology expert, offers a first-hand account of how Big Data is transforming the auto industry’s business model, and how it will change the world we live in. He shows us a glimpse of a future in which sharing your data could provide you with fantastic financial rewards by reducing the cost of buying things. Yet it comes with a downside: When companies install sensors in cars, appliances and homes to share data, they can create potentially serious privacy problems, security risks, and even deadly trouble.
Author John Ellis is an expert in big data, and how it will change the business models of the world’s leading sectors like transportation, insurance, telecommunications, government, and home building.
