“Indians are known to adopt newer technologies quickly. It is estimated that by 2025, 80% of jobs are likely to be virtualized. Artificial intelligence is making even specialists in every profession redundant. We need to leave out a conventional way of thinking and adapt to the fast-changing world”, Sri Chowdary observed. He cited examples of how even companies like Sony could not foresee the onslaught of new technology and had to fall victims to their lack of foresight.

The Chief Guest in the inaugural, Prof. M.R. Rao, Dean Emeritus, Indian School of Business, remarked that disruption happens more because of innovation and not because of changing technology. He cautioned that the role of faculty in educational institutions is going to change radically, with adaptive learning and mass customization going to be the order of the day. Everyone needs to realize that learning is lifelong and not restricted to getting a degree.
