    Aarthi Janakiraman, Team Leader - Chemicals and Advanced Materials, TechVision
    Industries are continuously intermingling to develop innovative products and services to satisfy the discerning needs of consumers. This convergence of industries may potentially disrupt existing business models and applications. Technologies, especially material technologies, act as key facilitators for the transforming innovation ecosystem. Therefore, it is imperative that companies review their portfolio and build their innovation pipeline of material technologies and customized products to be ready for future convergence and collaboration trends. The webinar will discuss key trends that are driving material innovations across different industries and focus on the emerging opportunities for materials across applications.
  • Are Batteries Becoming More Dangerous? Dec 14 2016 6:30 am UTC 60 mins
    Wai Fun Kee, Industry Principal, TechVision
    The battery sector was stunned with the news of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones catching fire or exploding in September 2016, and was further shaken when the replacement smartphones suffered similar fates. Such developments underline the new territory that advanced battery designs are venturing into, where the slightest defect may have catastrophic consequences. Scientists and researchers are thus compelled to improve upon existing battery technologies, where batteries will have to meet ever-increasing demands for high power density, good lifecycle, long shelf life, low cost, and safety.
  • Technology Convergence Scenarios – Exploring Untapped Business Models Recorded: Nov 10 2016 48 mins
    Anand S, Vice President, TechVision, Frost & Sullivan
    Technologies never remain in silos; they intermingle with one another to form innovative scenarios that may potentially disrupt existing business models and applications. For example, technologies such as Smart Haptics, 5G Networks, Surgical Robots, Artificial Intelligence and XaaS could combine to generate an innovative business scenario, “Haptic-enabled Remote Robotic Surgeries,” that may possibly disrupt the healthcare industry. For business executives and R&D organizations, these scenarios usher in innovation for their strategic business planning and help them stay ahead in the market. The webinar also discusses some of the key initiatives enabling the convergence of emerging technologies.
  • Technology Convergence Scenarios – Exploring Untapped Business Models Recorded: Oct 13 2016 51 mins
    Ankit Shukla, Practice Director, TechVision
    In an inter-connected world where technology has no boundaries, two or more emerging technologies across industries may converge in various scenarios, leading to unexplored applications or business models. For example, technologies like next-generation stem cells, additive manufacturing and nano-coatings may converge to give rise to "personalized cosmeceuticals," which are cosmetics customized based on phenotype and genotype of the user. Unexplored business models like these may become the next disruptive billion-dollar idea for investors, corporate executives and R&D professionals. The webinar will discuss key trends that drive these convergence scenarios and potential market challenges that should be noted while considering these opportunities.
  • Look Beyond Machine Learning to an AI Future Recorded: Oct 4 2016 57 mins
    Robin Varghese, Senior Research Analyst, Visionary Innovation Group
    Movies have created much hype around artificial intelligence, which has distorted the understanding of the technology for people, businesses, and government. Most people picture a dystopian society when they think about artificial intelligence, but the truth is light years away from this notion. In reality, the true capabilities of AI devices don’t meet general expectations. But in the past decade, the industry has witnessed significant development in terms of technology and the skills that are pushing the boundaries of AI capabilities. Newer innovations in machine learning algorithms (deep learning) and computing technologies (neuromorphic or quantum computing) show promise for AI. But is the public or government ready for this future? Are businesses aware of what needs to be done to become AI ready?

  • Smart Cities of India: Lopsided Development or Inclusive Growth? Recorded: Jan 28 2016 64 mins
    Archana Vidyasekar and Ayush Kachru, Frost & Sullivan; Lux Rao Hewlett Packard Enterprise
    It is projected that urban India will contribute about 75% of the national GDP in the next 15 years. With the rapid rate of urbanization and depleting resources, it is essential for India to rethink its strategy to see how it can best optimize the capabilities of its physical infrastructure.

    By leveraging global best practices in smart city development and ICT (Information and Communication Technology), India is in a unique position to leapfrog a few stages of growth to become a global superpower.

    In 2015, the Indian government announced an ambitious plan to develop 100 smart cities, with a commitment of spending $7.27 billion over the next five years. The infrastructure overhaul would include creating intelligent transport systems, smart grids, smart waste management, and smart water grids/solutions.

    In this presentation, we will look at the roadmap for Indian smart cities, along with the anticipated challenge of meeting capex requirements and the dire need for devising innovative business models to make “Smart Cities in India” a success story.

    Tune in for insights on the following:
    • Learn about the Indian government's $7.3 billion smart city mission aimed at applying smart solutions to improve infrastructure and service delivery in Indian cities.
    • Discover the key challenges with respect to regulation, funding and private/public partnerships.
    • Understand how the Internet of Things (IoT) is disrupting industries and causing convergence to create smart energy, smart transportation, smart infrastructure and smart buildings, smart security, smart or connected homes, and smart healthcare solutions.
    • Gain an insight into commonly observed business models and their applicability to India.
    • Analyze India’s area-based development strategy and the socio-economic divide.
    • Explore the various financial flexibility opportunities that are available for India.
