Digital Disruption

At ITC Sonar, 18 Aug 2017

Was chief guest at seminar today at ITC Sonar called "Digital Disruption". It was organised by Public Relations Society of India.

I made the point that by Massive Open Online Courses like Udacity etc, our young graduates should re-skill themselves to overcome and harness the post disruption world to be dominated by AI, robotics and the like. I mentioned that we must inculcate a spirit of innovation and creativeness by introducing and encouraging start-ups from high schools and colleges. I gave example that while our yellow taxi drivers may lose their jobs in the era of driver-less cars but as in an aircraft on an autopilot, there would be a manual override for many many years to come and drivers would have to re-skill themselves to control AI enabled robotic drivers. Co-Founder of Techno India Grup Ms Manasi Roy Chowdhury agreed to introduce start up courses in her institutions in due course.
