Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Can technology and human beings coexist in a mutually beneficial way?



In this ground-breaking book, N. Chandrasekaran, chairman of Tata Sons, the holding company and promoter of more than 100 Tata operating companies, presents a radical reimagining of the future of technology and reveals how it has the potential to solve the world's biggest challenges.



He imagines 2030: India is among the world's top three economies, with all Indians using advanced technology to do their job or get their job done, and having access to quality jobs, better healthcare and skill-based education. And he says: this reality is possible. It is within reach. With Bridgital.



To the coming disruption of artificial intelligence, he proposes an ingenious solution: to use it as an aid. Instead of taking jobs away, AI can generate them. Instead of replacing workers, AI will assist them. Chandrasekaran and his co-author, Roopa Purushothaman, chief economist of the Tata Group, show how the Bridgital model can address our divide between rich and poor, skilled and unskilled, and can provide better service delivery in health, transport, law and education. It could create and impact millions of jobs around the world.



One of the country's foremost industry leaders and pioneers, N. Chandrasekaran brings his expertise of over thirty years with the Tata Group to offer India as a blueprint for building a prosperous planet where digital and physical worlds work together and everyone is included in the growth story. It's a powerful vision for the future.
