RAISE 2020 Summit for Social Transformation, Inclusion and Empowerment

RAISE 2020 Summit

5th and 6th October, 2020

AI can be one of the most powerful technologies known to man, dwarfing even the internet in its ability to transform and disrupt at scale. How can we harness this power to make a positive impact on society? How can we reduce the risk of amplifying human biases? India is a unique setting for these critical conversations. Its massive scale, diversity and speed of tech adoption makes it a remarkable playground for experimentation. A data-rich environment like India has the potential to transform lives globally and become the world’s leading AI laboratory. Join us to shape our future together!



4th to 6th October, 2020

The RAISE 2020 Summit will feature some of the most exciting global startups working in Artificial Intelligence related fields. It will be a chance for startups to showcase ideas that present great potential in accelerating social transformation, inclusion and empowerment.
