Being at the crossroads of a future that involves adoption of emerging technology, one has to ask some hard questions:

Did we choose the right path that caters to both innovation and growth?
Have we identified potential areas of weakness and risk, and their intended effects?
How can we secure lasting and sustainable growth? How do we produce long-term value creation?
Are we taking our people with us… Ensuring they have the roadmap as clear as it is in our heads?

Watch as Debjani Ghosh takes us through the answers and talks about the urgency with which business leaders and professionals need to plan and well in advance to ensure we make a successful Indian story!

Technological advancement as a way forward is not a new approach for businesses. Companies in the past have worked extensively on innovation, using and adopting machines, but the transition as we see now has shifted gears of its focus from being company-centric to being people and customer centric. Beyond simply delivering solutions, companies in the IT sector are instead looking at how they are delivering value by stepping out of their comfort zone.

We have been cautioned against gaps in knowledge and underlined the need to fill such gaps; In this video, Ramswaroop Mishra personally urges for further progress in skill-learning to ensure enterprises are able to conquer the risks involved in technological advancements and satisfy changing customer requirements at the same time.

New forms of technology, including automation, have changed business models and the nature of jobs. In future, talent is clearly going to be a differentiator and investments in up/reskilling will notably influence decision makers and policy makers.

Prof. Dinesh Kumar, Chair, Data Centre and Analytics Lab IIM Bangalore

Watch as Professor Dinesh Kumar talks about Pattern recognition being the key aspect in data. While it is closely related to artificial intelligence and machine learning, together with applications such as data mining and knowledge discovery in databases (KDD), systems can be trained to label data, and deal with unlabeled data with the help of algorithms.

But given that Artificial intelligence has come a long way. Today, it is more than a new, old hype as it is forging ahead to transform how businesses operate and thus reshape the way humans work. Still, public understanding of its concepts is limited and the impact on the way we understand our world today is currently being debated intensely.
