Tracks

Data Science

Currently, cutting edge tech such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning etc. will surely continue changing the world. However, there is one problem. Even though the solution idea/concept/quality of the system is excellent, it can't be an effective solution if the speed of the computing process is slow. There are so many solutions that could solve existing problems in India.

IoT

Over 2 billion devices to be connected to the internet by the end of this year. With great IoT, comes great data, which is precursor to automation and intelligent optimization. By using the power of IoT, we are expecting you to reinvent homes, hospitals, wearables, industries, supply chain, agriculture, power systems and much more.

BlockChain

Politics and transparency don't always go hand in hand when it comes down to it. Government entities have budgets and responsibilities that they need to fulfil given their citizens. At the moment, it's quite difficult to monitor everything that they do expense-wise and make sure that money is being spent ethically. The increased transparency provided by a decentralized ledger would also help increase overall integrity.

Robotics

The influence of robotics is far more widespread than it appears to be, may it be work or home. Providing the missing link between the digital and physical world, it thrives towards becoming the driving tech for the upcoming generations. Automation, on the other hand, involves a broad range of technologies, thus crossing all functions within industries leading to higher output and increased productivity.

AR AND VR

The Augment Reality revolution will also have a significant impact on the healthcare industry. Use technology to create smart healthcare solutions for people residing in urban centres. A unified healthcare system, with collecting and sharing of data along with analysis and research practices, is what will determine the future of public healthcare.

Open Innovation

Unable to find a theme to match your idea? Choose this one. The only clause - your design needs to have a hardware aspect to it.
