Podcast: How can investment help artificial intelligence make an impact in India?

India is among the earliest adopters of artificial intelligence (AI).

In fact a study from the Boston Consulting Group puts the country third behind the USA and China in terms of its uptake of AI.

People in India seem positive about the technology’s potential too. Nearly three quarters of respondents to a survey conducted by PwC said they felt optimistic that AI can deliver social and economic impact.

So what sectors are poised to deliver this impact? And what role can investment play in helping deliver it? In this podcast, we aim to find out. We speak to:

– Manish Singhal, Founding Partner of Pi Ventures – an investment fund that backs companies using AI.
– Geetha Manjunath, CEO and Co-Founder of Niramai – a company that has developed a product that uses AI to detect early stage breast cancer.
– Nishith Rastogi, CEO and Co-Founder of Locus – a business that uses AI to provide logistics solutions for firms.
