Chief Guest of the Conference was Cabinet Minister Mr. Suresh Prabhu.

It was a great learning experience for the students as they got an opportunity to acquire knowledge as well as Managerial Skills. Technology is changing rapidly and profoundly, hence major focus of the Conference was on explaining latest trend in Technology which includes processes and products ranging from driverless cars, smart robots (bots as the cool people call them), artificial intelligence (AI), and internet of things (IoT), big data analytics, cloud computing, and virtual reality (VR). Keynote speaker Mr. Anindya Basu, Senior Managing Director, Accenture, explained beautifully that disruptions is the reality and is not something that is to be feared. Disruptions have a predictable pattern and if one can analyze the pattern it can be used as a tool for the growth of the organization.

Mr. Mukul Ghanekar, CEO, AVL India discussed Leveraging Machine Learning for Enhanced Customer Experience. Prof Rajendra Pratap Gupta, Policy Advisor, Union Govt. of India enlightened us on Digital Health in India: 2019 and beyond. Mr. Krishna Prasad, CEO, Interaction One & CEO, Mobmerry threw light on Voice and IoT as future technologies.  After that several other speakers presented their brainstorming thoughts and made the audience dive into the future and imagine how future will look like with the advancement in technology. The main attraction of the Conference was “Inaya” the AI-powered robot and drones which can be controlled by the movement of palms.

As it is rightly said “Change is the only constant”, technological change is also inevitable and opportunity lies in embracing the change.
