The Road to Digital Transformation is very exciting but paved with challenges since the technology treadmill moves at a rapid pace. Terms like Social, Mobile, Analytics, and Cloud (SMAC) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) have given way to new buzzwords including edge computing, multi-cloud, data analytics, IoT, AI (ChatGPT, Bard, Bing, etc.), quantum computing, and security. Major growth drivers of the market are the adoption of Industry 4.0, and the use of advanced technologies such as Cloud, IoT, big data and analytics, mobility, and social media. 

At the Mint Digital Innovation Summit, our experts will not only tell you about the progress that these cutting-edge technologies are making, but also how they can meet your business needs and make a social impact.

    Panel Discussion: How AI, automation, data analytics can help India become a $5 trillion economy

    How AI, automation, data analytics can help become a $5 trillion economy

    AI holds a lot of promise when we talk about the digital transformation of companies but a lot of it depends on the use of good data. India’s digital push could transform it into a data-rich economy and AI, as Nasscom insists, will play a crucial role in realizing the government's vision to use this data to make India a $5 trillion economy by 2024-25. However, while companies across sectors are gathering increasing volumes of data, only a small fraction of this data is being analyzed to yield actionable insights that can drive business decisions and growth. And AI will work well only if your data is good. Bad or dirty data will not serve the purpose. This panel will discuss how AI, automation and data analytics can help businesses optimize their performance to drive growth and efficiency.
