Vinayak Hegde, CTO-in-Residence at Microsoft for Startups, delved into AI applications within startups, introducing “5C Network” as a healthcare co-pilot, automating procedures such as MRI scans.

For people in sales, he spoke about how “One Pitch AI” can act like a wingman, helping with their research and pitches.

Dale Vaz, former CTO of Swiggy and former director at Amazon, traced the evolution of AI, from its initial use for searches and recommendations in 2007 to its current role in estimating delivery times for popular app-based delivery services.

He said AI was not a superpower, but like undertaking a journey: “AI takes over the complexity of the business. But it is not perfect. We still cannot always get the delivery promise right as riders may have to refuel during the trip. So, there is scope for learning.”
