2020 Virtual Summit: Deep dive into leveraging AI for population scale challenges


In a rapidly evolving world, Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been leading the charge in transforming the future of business and life. In this scenario, India, with its “AI for All'' strategy, and a large pool of technology workforce, is uniquely positioned to leverage AI for revolutionising key sectors like healthcare, smart mobility, education, agriculture, and others, at scale.

The AI and analytics industry in India was estimated to be $415 million annually in revenues in 2019, up from $230 million in 2018, according to a report by Analytics India Magazine. In 2018, The National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence (NSAI) highlighted the potential of AI in boosting India's annual growth rate by 1.3 percentage points by 2035. Statistics like these show that AI is a key enabler of growth for India’s technology ecosystem.

To explore and deliberate on India's massive potential to develop AI solutions for mankind's greatest problems at population scale, Intel presents the 2020 Virtual summit from October 12 to 16, 2020. Register here
