The fourth industrial revolution, Digital, is certain to disrupt and transform everything as we know it today – industries, lives and economies – in more ways than we could imagine.

On March 22-23, the Government of Kerala will host #FUTURE – the first-ever Digital Summit – at the Le Meridien Convention Centre, Kochi. This was one of the initial recommendations of the Chief Minister’s High Power IT Committee (HPIC) of eminent personalities led by S D Shibulal, Co-founder and Former MD & CEO, Infosys.

An event focussing on Digital, where Kerala has distinct advantages, is apt and timely. This will not be a one-off programme as many post-event actions are expected. #FUTURE will galvanize the Malayali diaspora of technology professionals scattered around the world and inspire them to promote Kerala and our Digital strengths – skilled talent, world-class infrastructure and a progressive government with business-friendly policies. We envisage this event to create a powerful platform for professionals to reconnect and network, and continue the conversations. #FUTURE will provide us with a great opportunity to communicate to the world about the Knowledge City that we are planning as well as the progress we are making on the infrastructure front especially with K-FON (Kerala Fibre Optic Network).

The Summit will cover sectors which are seeing a lot of action in Digital – finance, education and healthcare. Plus, we will dive deep into Big Data, IoT, AI, Machine Learning, Blockchain and the like. The Digital Experience Theatres at #FUTURE will offer interesting experiences for delegates to visualise how some of these future technologies will impact us and make the coming days more interesting.

Former Governor of RBI Raghuram Rajan, Financial Advisor to the Chief Minister of Kerala Gita Gopinath, Non-Executive Chairman of Infosys Nandan Nilekani, and Founder and CEO of Paytm Vijay Shekhar Sharma are some of the highly distinguished speakers we are lining up.
