Webinar: India-Dutch Innovation During Crisis - Data & AI

26 May 2020

Data analytics & AI have featured largely in the healthcare industry’s front line of defense against COVID-19. Researchers have leveraged these tools to do everything from tracking hospital capacity to identifying high-risk patients, and many believe that these technologies are critical to preparing for similar situations in the future, be it for surveillance, monitoring or diagnostics. Data & AI will also play a crucial role in areas beyond healthcare, like digital government, neighbourhood economies and smart cities as various organisations navigate the ongoing crisis.


We discuss how policy makers, industry experts and businesses, especially startups have been at the forefront of developing solutions related to covid 19 crisis. The audience will have a chance to interact with the speakers. By doing so, we learn from each other and provide an opportunity to form strategic Indo-Dutch ties! We welcome you to become part of our bottom-up community backing creative and entrepreneurial members to play their role as game changers.
