New Delhi: Subram Natarajan, chief technology officer of IBM India / South Asia, shares his views on digital technologies such as artificial intelligence (artificial intelligence), blockchain and 5G and their impact on businesses. Modified extracts:
On AI (machine learning, deep learning), blockchain, IoT, AR-VR, 3D printing, automation and robotics.
All emerging technologies will have an impact in 2019, but IA, blockchain and cloud applications will be the most transformative in all industries.
IBM defines AI as "augmented intelligence" because its true value lies not in replicating human intelligence but in completing it. And in doing so, it will only redefine the way the world works: it will expand what people are able to work on, opening new avenues of innovation, exploration, discovery and industry. AI will also create new markets and businesses, while transforming existing businesses and government institutions from top to bottom.
Blockchain is a transformation technology with the potential to change business transactions in the same way that the Internet has changed communications over the years & # 90; The cloud will continue to play a significant role as a key technology that drives corporate business transformation.
The impact of GDPR on companies in India
Organizations must see it as a possibility to simplify their data management approaches, reducing the amount of personal data they retain, reducing the number of people who have access to personal data and deleting data that is no longer needed. This "cleaning" process sets them up for long-term efficiency and offers the opportunity to create more personalized products and services, fostering deeper relationships with their customers and customers.
Do you see a visible passage at 5G in 2019?
From the end-user's point of view, there may not be any visible changes in 2019. There's a lot of work to do before the launch. The niche services surrounding the 5G need different actors in the ecosystem to become ready for 5G services.
In digital India
There have been giant steps with this program. The reach of the Internet in rural India as an arterial initiative has allowed the delivery of various digital government services. I am sure that the impact of these digitally provided citizens services has been experienced by us in all areas of government functions, financial transactions, taxes, etc.
Do you think that IA will have an impact on jobs?
AI will help human beings to perform their respective tasks much more efficiently. The goal of artificial intelligence is to increase intelligence, not to replace it. There are still significant limits to what cognitive technologies can do, especially in the field of decision making. Artificial intelligence is an instrument and, like all instruments, it only amplifies people's work.
The key learning that the most mature organizations follow is to always be vigilant and to act on the updates that come from security experts. The creation and maintenance of an incident response plan is the key to rapid recovery from any security incident. It is becoming the norm for companies to provide adequate security training not only for employees, but also for suppliers and others who work with the company.
