When talking about AI and security in the same context, AI can be used to create more security solutions in business. While it is essential to think about what needs to be secured, securing AI itself has become a dire necessity as well. AI tools are highly susceptible to data manipulation and privacy breaches. Compromising security and privacy, either at the low end or at the high end might lead to severe consequences. From data poisoning, model theft, and inference attacks to creating polymorphic malware through modern-day Gen AI, the vulnerable scenarios are many.

Digitalize or perish — a new norm in supply chains

20-03-2023

Digitalization is a buzzword today, and the supply chain is not an exception this. But digitalization of supply chains is not something new. Around 25 years ago, Dell revolutionized the entire computer industry by digitalizing the supply chain. The consumer could specify his desired features and the laptop would be configured according to the requirements. Similarly, Zara, a fashion industry firm that is known for its responsiveness, revolutionized the fashion industry around fifteen years ago, promising 2-3 weeks of lead time to the retailer on the make-to-design products. It could achieve this by limiting its manufacturing in Spain unlike most of the contemporary fashion industry players that were outsourcing to China, which used to take 3-4 months for supply.

There are contrasting views and forecasts from various experts on how the year 2023 could be for the Indian economy.

India is witnessing a surge in EV adoption could be considered an understatement considering that 2022 the country sold almost sold 1 million EVs in 2022 (9,99,949 units) as per Vahan data. This was also 209.7 percent more than in 2021 which saw a surge of 165.4 percent alone. However, while the buyers are getting well sensitised to the growing need for cleaner mobility, manufacturers still seem to be torn between the EV vs Hybrids debate. While Maruti Suzuki and Toyota firmly believe in Hybrids as the perfect solution for countries such as India, Japan and Sri Lanka. Homegrown automakers such as Tata Motors and Mahindra have stepped on the EV wave and are betting on it for the future.
