Tata Sons Chairman-Designate and outgoing CEO of TCS N Chandrasekaran has said that data collection mechanism and intelligent systems such as machine learning and artificial intelligence would help in synthesising the issues and develop responses (solutions).

“Bots (robots) can deliver the responses in the future. The amount of automation is going to be magical.

“There is a huge opportunity for research in artificial intelligence,” he said while addressing students of International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT-Hyderabad) here on Monday.

Chandrasekaran was here to inaugurate the Kohli Research Block at the Kohli Center on Intelligent systems (KCIS). FC Kohli, the TCS founder who is considered to be the father of Indian IT industry, was also present at the event.
