Deep Tech Innovation


The first physical Deep Tech Innovation Alley was executed with perfection and attended by some august and curious audiences across industries. It was held on 30th November at the Jio World Convention Center, Mumbai.

Network Science set out with an aim to give its participants a never before experience by getting the best minds and most advanced tech together. The reviews received from each participant were very humbling and gave us the confidence that we could do far better in the next DTIA.

Innovation on Board’s Agenda – a Panel Discussion

A Panel Discussion like no other! Innovation is no longer a discussion taking place in pockets in an organization to be put aside . It is now an important aspect inside the boardroom. We wanted to understand from our 3 panellists representing 3 different industries, about their experience and views on this topic. The panel was represented by Jayant Khosla- charismatic MD of VLCC healthcare, Rajarshi Moitra- eloquent CCO of Bridgestone and Sandeep Wirkhare- dynamic CEO of Indian School Finance company (ISFC). Sandeep Hardikar set the tone as a moderator and what followed was an interesting and rich discussion that left the audience engrossed and also in splits occasionally. Innovation at grassroots what is better known as ‘Jugaad Innovation’, came out unanimously as the birthplace of what later transcends as corporate level innovation. All 3 panellists with their many years in the corporate world had experienced this Jugaad on multiple occasions. Very interesting examples were shared through the discussion and many evoked peals of laughter from the audience.

Demystifying AI by Dr. Shailesh Kumar

Another captivating experience was the session on Demystifying AI by Shailesh Kumar, Chief Data Scientist of Reliance Jio. The session lasted for an hour and everyone in the audience wanted to know more about how AI was influencing lives. Dr.Shailesh received a thunderous applause for doing complete justice to the session and simplifying the applications of AI.

Fast Track Innovation

Network Science reached out to some DTIA participating companies asking for their teething business problems and received interesting responses. The resolution to these using some Deep Tech platforms was demonstrated at DTIA in the Fast Track Innovation session. Our first business problem was a board level issue of knowing the quantum of Cyber risk. The next business problem we received was that of remote inspection. How do we reduce downtime and travel costs while making sure our factories are running round the clock by activating remote inspection systems. The Fast Track Innovation session established that business issues need not take long cycles to be addressed. Deep Tech is here to bring big and fast innovation.

Innovation Alley

Inauguration of Deep Tech Innovation Alley

DTIA was inaugurated by our esteemed guests Ajita Hathlia, Manaswini Goel Akash Poddar Dhruv Patel and our Co-founder Raju Chouthai by lighting the quintessential ceremonial lamp.

Data is a powerful resource for change. It has increasingly become the language for people & organisations. Data Strategies we implement today will help us deal with the multitude of data challenges faced by organisations and prepare us better for the future.
