Bertha Benz, Story of the First Cross-Country Car Trip, and Your Journey to Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Satadru Sengupta, DataRobot’s General Manager of Insurance, wrote a piece about the parallels between the journey to artificial intelligence (AI) and the advent of the first ever cross-country car trip. Learn all about how Bertha and Carl Benz, a young couple in Germany, developed and promoted the world’s the first production automobile. AI practices and methods are applied to each stage of their story, bringing together history and technology in a unique and interesting way.
“Lately, I have been traveling to Europe, specifically Germany, quite a bit. After all, we are expanding our business there, and travel comes as collateral. On the bright side, we get to see new places, meet new people and learn from them, get familiar with new cultures, and hear some inspiring stories.
Recently, as I was traveling to Wiesloch, Germany, I came across one story that stayed with me: Bertha Benz and her 66-mile car trip in 1888 from Mannheim to Pforzheim, Germany. Since we celebrated International Women’s Day this week, I thought of writing the story of the superwoman.
Interestingly enough, we can learn a lot from her as we start our journey to implementing Artificial Intelligence (AI) in an organization.”
