Moving forward with Using Technology

Technology is going to play a primary role in solving problems. And it is also a preliminary concern of  Intellecap. Acknowledging this concern Nisha thinks, “By 2050, personal medical devices will evolve from clunky wearables to inject, and dashboard-based health apps will evolve to personal AI health workers we have daily conversations with. Over time, technology will replace over a million jobs in the developed world – with labour intensive, repetitive, and semi-skilled jobs disappearing first. Manufacturing will move out of factories and closer to consumers, and many of the jobs outsourced from the West, which fuelled the rise of India’s middle class such as software and BPO jobs will disappear. Soon enough, automation technology will trickle down to India as well, replacing unskilled and semi-skilled workers across manufacturing, infrastructure, retail, hospitality, and several other industries.”

In the aspect of things to come, one needs to gaze out for innovations and solutions that makes life more probable and ideas that will be at our doorstep. As an organisation, Intellecap are trying to throw their weight behind technology as that is the only way to break inequities.
