“I’ve been speaking at this conference for the last many years but this time it was personally a difficult experience as I had to travel to the conference at the time when my uncle had expired and I couldn’t attend his funeral. However in my heart I know he would have wanted me to continue carrying the beacon forward; as he was one of the brightest entrepreneurs Sikkim has produced. In a way it was an homage to his entrepreneurial creed.
This year I’ve seen the rate of innovation in Artificial Intelligence, Digital Currency, Blockchain & Robotics have increased exponentially. The data-driven economy is changing rapidly and we all have a conscious choice to make – either we participate in building the new economy around data science or we will be left in the lurch economically, politically and socially.” said Karma
