Commenting on the event, Ajay Shrivastava, CTO, Knowlarity said, “The world over, Artificial Intelligence is the latest concept that has become the buzzword of business. While many global companies have already started to successfully implement A.I. for business and brand growth, Indian entrepreneurs are still trying to grasp the enormity of this immensely transformative development. In such a scenario, this Meetup was an absolutely essential and enriching event that left the participants significantly aware and fully prepared to mould the A.I. phenomenon according to the best interests of their respective businesses.”
The event saw sessions being led by Ajay Shrivastava, the current CTO of Knowlarity and previously the Head of Technology at Oyo, who helped the company grow its technology team during the phase where the company grew from four to 200 cities.
