After a kickoff of futuristic technologies by a global line of experts at DISRUPT KERALA 2017, the 50th edition of FAYA:80, it is now time to delve deeper. Today, the technologies are advancing exponentially, rapidly transforming age-old established patterns and processes in our world. The luxury of time we had in transfiguring computers the size of a building to the desktops, laptops and smartphones of today, cannot be expected for the next major shift in technology. The top 10 tech job profiles of today did not exist 10 years ago and today’s may not exist in another 3-5 years.
The August edition of FAYA:80 will provide rapid-fire introductions to the concept of Singularity and the exponential technologies, including AI, Machine Learning, BlockChain and next-generation computing. An understanding of these exponentials can lead to a completely different approach in solving some of the most challenging problems of our times.
The session will be equally beneficial for entrepreneurs, developers, testers, top level technical and non-technical managers and other technology enthusiasts.
Join us to explore how investing in futuristic technologies can future-proof your careers and help build the necessary mindset & skill set.
