The present era is an era of change and transformation, an era in which all elements are critically in ferment. This world is characterized by widespread turbulence and rapidity and volatility of events. This reminds us of an old Chinese proverb: “may you live in interesting times”!
There has been a confluence of Innovation, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Deep Learning (DL), Robotics, Analytics, Internet and Entrepreneurship. The issues of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA), disruptive innovations and regulatory compliances have increasingly come to the fore. But in this cacophony of sound and fury, we sometimes wonder-as T.S. Eliot did about a century ago.
