Is it high time we focus on “skill building”?   India's youth has the power to turn it into a global economic powerhouse. A growing workforce helps the entire Indian economy, giving businesses access to people that are young and physically fit. By 2020, India will have the world's largest population in the age group of 18-50.

    Can the current education system be moulded to bring it out?   India is a major exporter of IT and BPO services and the IT industry continues to be the largest private sector employer in India. However, a recent study classifies that only 4.77% candidates from Engineering colleges can write the correct logic for a programme, a minimum requirement for any programming job.

Artificial IntelligenceArtificial Intelligence is all set to change the landscape with various applications across industries. Companies like Cambridge Semantics and Automated Insights are working on producing text from computer data. We have all used Google Now and Appleā€™s Siri that transcribe and transform human speech to generate computer search results. Virtual Agents such as Alexa are on the go. However, every application out there operates under a constraint as there is only so much that we can do with our current algorithms and we simply do not have enough data from machine learning to churn out intelligent results. With giants like Google, Apple and Uber working on creating driverless cars, the technology is making inroads and applications are helping build big data.
