The pace of technical innovation is more rapid than ever, as a staggering range of new technologies blur the boundaries between people, the internet, devices and the physical world. 
As a company, it is abundantly clear that new technology and innovation will play an important role in defining our future. Before us, we have unprecedented opportunities to enhance and create new HERE products, offerings, and services utilizing emerging data-driven technologies such as next-generation geospatial temporal storage, advanced/real-time analytics, artificial intelligence, deep neural networks, closed-loop machine learning, computer vision, and advanced robotics just to name a few. 
To harness the potential of these emerging technologies, it is important that HERE has the world-class, leading passionate and pioneering team within our Chief Technology Office.

As such, the CTO office focuses on defining the Technical and Research agendas for HERE, including developing and deploying a leading edge Vision and Roadmap for the future product and services offerings of the company from a technology perspective. 
The magnitude of data, computing power, and investment required to build systems capable of delivering the future of location context is enormous.
