A human revolution: Services in the time of AI

As the adoption of cloud in the enterprise proliferates, and the endpoints of consumption become increasingly important, while at the same time enterprises wrestle with simplifying and significantly lowering the costs of their landscapes, the world of services stands at a great inflection point. A new era of intelligent systems can unleash dramatic value and help accelerate the purposeful digitizations of the world around us, and yet the same automation and cost-performance forces also stand to render the previous generation of services irrelevant. In this talk Dr. Sikka shares his perspectives, from the unique vantage point as the leader of a transforming Infosys, on how a great human revolution can help reimagine services that amplify people in entirely new ways, deliver AI purposefully and yet massively in every aspect of our lives, and help enterprises meet their dual objectives of renewing their legacies while embracing new frontiers.
