HealthTech Summit:- Docs Vs Geeks - What drives medical innovation.
India is at the cusp of a medical innovation revolution. Growing population, rising income levels coupled with lifestyle changes and changing disease profiles call for high quality medtech to bridge the gap between demand and supply of healthcare, making India an extremely attractive market. What was so far perceived to be a import driven market is now being rapidly changed by a host of startups doing some cutting edge work in various areas. The industry is expected to grow by 5x to USD 50 Billion by 2025.
At this stage, it's important for us to understand what is driving this medtech innovation engine? Whilst the geeks invariable argue in favor of large talent pool and the multiplying effects of technological possibilities, the docs wonder if technological possibilities should super seed medical needs? So some of the questions we would like to ponder on in this 45 minutes panels discussion are:
a. Are the geeks spending enough time with docs to understand the medical needs?
b. Are docs and geeks co inventing?
c. How open are docs to adopt new, home grown technologies?
d. What are investors perceptions when it comes to high impact IP rich innovations with a long time to market period?
Come, watch docs and geeks battle it out at this one of a kind panel discussion at NPC 2018 on 25th October 2018 at Taj Vivanta, Yeshwantpur, Bengaluru.

Devices & IoT Summit:- Scaling-up hardware operations
Fitbit, MakerBot, NEST, and Go-Pro have shown hardware startups can grow quickly becoming ‘unicorns’. With surging growth in the IoT/Semiconductor/Hardware sector comes the opportunity for Indian Startups to build innovative and scalable enterprises. While the world recognizes that the opportunity exists in India, the real question is whether Indian hardware start-ups will be able to compete with the best practices, the brain and money power of Startups from China and Silicon Valley or will they fall by the wayside. The panel discussion will have interesting and engaging conversations on topics like Getting from the Prototype to Production, DFA/DFM/DFT choices, and Operations & Maintenance best practices.

Security Tokens: The New IPO
Security tokens - Imagine a fully-regulated token that represents shares of a company, the equivalent of issuing company stock on blockchain. The tokens and the company are regulated by the Government, which reduces the chances of a fraud. Or at least enough to get accepted by the institutional regulations. So when we talk about security tokens, that’s where the traditional stocks and the blockchain framework find their way of getting together.

The panel will discuss what lies ahead for Security Tokens, how is this disrupting the capital markets, what are the benefit to regulators and how this will enable trust while disintermediating the middlemen.

AI and the future of work
Artificial intelligence is affecting everybody and completely transforming the way we work. As AI’s adoption in the workplace continues to accelerate, we’re faced with two pressing ethical issues: data bias and accountability.
Whether it’s algorithms written by homogenous teams or unrepresentative training data, the risks are clear. Ultimately, for company's AI strategy to succeed, the systems it implements must be fair. For companies seeking to harness the power of AI, while avoiding the potential pitfalls of deployment, the key questions are:
  • How can we equip ourselves to deal with the issues?
  • What can organizations do to understand the skills they need?
  • How is AI going to affect my industry sector or corporate function?
  • What work is being in done in the intersection between AI, HR and recruitment?
