Session III: #IndiaInDecadeofthe20s - Panel Discussion: Future of Consumption in Fast-Growth Consumer Markets like India
There are many ways of looking at India. One, it’s amongst the very few fast-growing large economies; two, as a country of 1.2 billion people where 65% of the population is less than 35 years of age; or three, as having the third largest start-up ecosystem in the world. Finally, the digital capabilities of the nation and its storied success are now very well documented, leaving no ambiguity whatsoever about its future potential.

Growth in the consumer market is about meeting/exceeding aspirations, sustaining it in the long run & innovation is at the heart of this growth story. Simplistic, as it may sound, but it’s really a maze of opportunities that must be interwoven to give the complete picture. Hyper-personalization through data-led insights, supply chain efficiencies, smart pricing and ease of doing & setting up business are some of these threads. Given the breadth and depth of the market, their interconnectedness is very high. We have four incredible speakers from very different backgrounds to address this topic. E-commerce, Venture Capital, global management consultancy and hospitality are but windows through which we can view the paradigm of fast-paced innovation & consumer growth.

And, we can’t overlook the result of technology’s influence on the behaviors and expectations of a new generation employees too.
But there’s hope. What’s happening now, if you can take enough of a step back to see it for its promise and potential, you’ll realize that all of the technology offers the promise of making things more human again. As crazy as that sounds, it’s simply a matter of perspective.

The digital world is more intimate and personal than ever imaginable, but the models for data, ownership, and experience that define that world has remained the same. We are experiencing a tech-clash where outdated ecosystem and data models, architectures, and governing structures systems and services are incongruous with what people need from their technology. For organizations to compete, businesses need to rebuild business and technology models to defuse tech-clash, build human-centered models, and foster trusting relationships with people.

Session X: #Imagining20’s - Panel Discussion: From Automation to Autonomy/Autonomous
The next technology transformation humans will witness is from automation to autonomy. As we move across this continuum towards autonomy, automated machines/robots can process data faster with greater accuracy, communicate with each other, and program/re-program themselves to act and react without explicit instructions. Certainly, the auto industry is miles ahead in this transformation and is racing towards high and complete automation/ autonomous, disrupting the sector. New use cases are rapidly evolving in several other sectors including manufacturing, warehouse automation, workforce automation and public safety. The session will dwell deep into the defining trends in the evolution from automation to autonomous and what the future holds.
