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.
