The ride-sharing economy is taking the world by storm. UberPOOLs and Lyft Lines are the new norm.  With the arrival of autonomous vehicles on the horizon, multi-passenger ride-sharing is only expected to increase.  With multi-passenger audiences, streaming services and automakers have an opportunity to deliver entirely new music experiences that appeal to every passenger in the car.  This panel will explore the automotive trends that will shape the music experiences of the future and how AI and machine learning is being applied to create a unified experience across all musical tastes.
