Ford executive chairman Bill Ford will speak on the opening day of Web Summit, one of the world’s leading conferences for technology and ideas.
The event takes place in Dublin from November 3-5 and is expected to attract more than 22,000 people from 110 countries.
In addition, Ford Motor Company is inviting developers to take part in a 24-hour challenge to design apps for SYNC, Ford’s voice activated, in-car connectivity system. The SYNC AppLink Developer Challenge Dublin is organised with Web Summit and will give programmers a chance at €75,000 prize money and the opportunity to develop new apps with Ford.
SYNC AppLink Challenge Dublin will give developers 24 hours to come up with new ideas or enable their existing iOS or Android apps to work with Ford’s advanced voice-activated connectivity system. Bill Ford also will meet with the developers participating in the challenge to discuss his vision for the future of mobility and how technology will make people’s lives better.
