Insights from our CEO at the Big Data & A.I Asia 2018:

“Beyond the attractions of the latest app, what’s really happening is that we are entering a new age of strategy. Governments and corporations have to make sense of this new age. In the 21st century, data is going to be destiny.

How do we harness the power of data? How do we control it? How do we monetize it?

The distribution, responsibility and burden for governance is no longer a concentration only on governments and non-government institutions but technological platforms primarily because they control, channel, modify and shape data. They are making use of this data through artificial intelligence to guide, curate, frame daily experience and consumer choices.” – Mr. Devadas Krishnadas
