Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

Our Sessions

The Big Picture

Change is a black box at a granular level but it begins to unravel when we place it in the right context. Big picture thinking leans on first principles, optimism and the mechanics of entropy to connect the dots looking ahead.

AI and ML in the Enterprise

AI and ML have evolved today to become critical to large enterprises.. They have helped reduce costs, decrease fraud, improve customer experience, drive process automation, scale individual and team productivity, and more. As these technologies continue to accelerate instant and deeply personalized solutions, let’s revisit the state of AI and ML in the post-COVID enterprise.

Blockchain at Work

Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) is not only impacting the world of finance, but also redefining what trust means in a decentralized society. Blockchain has successfully survived its hype cycle and is now beginning to serve use cases as varied as debt issuance, fractional ownership of art, background checks, validation of educational qualifications, and a whole lot more. Let’s explore how this technology is impacting our professional lives.

Identity, Data Security and Privacy

Privacy and trust form the bedrock of our society, and in a world where everything around us is getting interconnected and intelligent, it is vital to safeguard these rights. This is precisely why identity and data security remain critically important to the promise of digital transformation for both consumers and businesses. In this session, we will unpack issues surrounding data ownership, accessibility, and localization.

Crypto Contours

Crypto is steadily growing in prominence, with India and other Asian markets witnessing massive adoption in 2020 and 2021. Although regulatory oversight and compliances are still actively developing in many markets across the world, crypto is quickly consolidating its position as a viable alternative asset class. A new breed of retail investors and venture capitalists is driving this economic transformation with entirely new use cases such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Join this session to better understand the shifting contours of the crypto ecosystem.
