I've known Sygic ever since I came across a first smartphone with its GPS Navigation app. I knew it was a Slovak company, developing a first-class mobile application. This summer, after the app successfully got me and my friends to and from my holiday in Croatia, I stumbled upon the opportunity to join the new Sygic team in Brno. I knew straight away it was the right choice for me.
Thousands of people die on the roads each day, which adds up to more than a million deaths per year. Each plane crash is a catastrophe that makes it into the headlines, but the millions of people dying on the roads is a tragedy often expressed as a mere statistic. There are already technologies that can eliminate these tragedies in the form of self-driving vehicles. Every carmaker now has its own technology for self-driving vehicles. But do they want to release them? What will happen next? What about deciding between economics or a moral dilemma?
Of course, we couldn't miss this year's Bratislava Night Run. Almost 4500 ran the 10km track, with 20 runners from Sygic :).
