Drawing on his background in information technologies, businessman Alexandre Taillefer is once again applying their incredible potential, this time to revolutionize a very conventional world: the taxi industry. Researchers at HEC Montréal are currently working on an application based on big data processing, which should allow his Téo Taxi business to serve more customers with the same number of employees.
