Artificial Intelligence is nothing new! People have been looking at from multiple decades. But now, based on the compute capabilities and availability of large amount of data, Artificial Intelligence is becoming a reality and a single largest opportunity of our times. AI is fundamentally able to change the way businesses make decision and machines (robots etc) will start behaving like humans and making decisions. This will have huge impact in making our lives better.

 We are seeing many positions such as Chief data officer or CDO who will be responsible for enterprise wide governance and utilization of information as an asset, via data processing, analysis, data mining and they are reporting to CEO. Most enterprises now looking at AI to create differentiation in their business

 

 India is, according to some reports 3rd largest AI start up ecosystem in the world. There is unprecedented increase in number of start-ups focusing on creating products on AI. Because they have many large enterprises  across different domains looking at deploying AI solution. Health care, Consumer, Security etc are some examples.

 

NASSCOM is the apex industry association for the IT sector in India and includes over 14K member companies accounting for over 95% of India's software and services revenue.
