environment? With this uncertainty in our minds, we are making an attempt to question industry
experts about their views on the same. The theme aims to take forward the dialogue on how effective
the tools of transformation have been over the years and questions what the future holds for us.

our country? This panel discussion aims to throw light on how the industries are adopting automation
and machine learning to change the way they work and deliver superior value.
