Biocon top executive Kiran Mazumdar Shaw said that cutting-edge technologies like cloud-computing, the blockchain, Artificial Intelligence and Data Science would provide opportunities to young people.
At the convocation of IMT Hyderabad, the Biocon chairperson and MD said, “The next few decades will see cutting-edge technologies such as Cloud Computing, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Quantum Computing provide smart young people like you huge opportunities to usher in ‘disruptive innovation’ that will shake up businesses and transform lives. These technologies will also create new employment opportunities.”
She further added,“Technological advancements keep transforming our lives in ways we just cannot even imagine. Today, there are millions of people working as app developers, ride-sharing drivers, drone operators, and social media marketers, which are jobs that didn’t exist and would have been difficult to even imagine ten years ago.”
Noting that failure is inherent to building success, she told the students not to give up but to strive hard for success.
