🚀 Thrilled to Share Insights at NSCTC 2024! 🌐

Last month, I had the honor of delivering the keynote at the National Student Conference on Trends in Computing, discussing "Real World Applications of Machine Learning" and its pivotal role in social inclusion.


As an Innovation Architect and a staunch advocate for social impact through technology, I've witnessed firsthand how AI can transcend traditional boundaries. At Tata Consultancy Services, I led initiatives that not only pushed the envelope in tech innovation but also ensured these advancements were accessible and beneficial to all, particularly those with disabilities.



During my speech, I explored:



AI and Empathy 🤖❤️:


How designing AI with emotional intelligence can dramatically enhance user interactions, making technology a companion rather than just a tool.



Inclusive Design 🌍🤝:


The critical importance of developing technologies that accommodate everyone, regardless of their physical or cognitive abilities.






AI for Social Good 🚀🌟:


VHAB: A standout case from my portfolio, VHAB is an AI-driven tool developed at Tata Consultancy Services that revolutionizes physical therapy for individuals with neuromuscular disabilities. By integrating AI with motion sensing technology, VHAB customizes therapeutic activities into interactive and engaging games. This not only improves motor skills but also ensures that the exercises are emotionally uplifting and motivating. VHAB exemplifies how AI can be applied compassionately to significantly enhance daily functionality and quality of life for users, making it a prime example of technology crafted for inclusive betterment.



The dialogue at the conference was enriching, pushing the boundaries of what we perceive AI can achieve in social spheres. It’s clear that when we align our technological pursuits with empathetic and inclusive principles, the impact can be profound and far-reaching.


I am grateful for the engaging discussions and the shared enthusiasm for a more inclusive technological future. Let's continue to champion technologies that not only innovate but also integrate, ensuring that no one is left behind in our digital future.



🤔 What are your thoughts on integrating empathy and inclusiveness in tech development? How can we better harness AI to serve society?



Thank you Dr. Indu Nair and the entire SCMS Cochin School of Business team for hosting me and for the wonderful conference.
