    Technology Predictions for 2024 and Beyond

    Last year witnessed a series of innovations and achievements in diverse sectors that will only see better outcomes and will hold productive implications in the coming years. 2023 was a landmark year for multiple reasons – the semiconductor industry in India attracted fresh budget allocation, further cementing expansion of electronics manufacturing ecosystem in the country. Building on the commitment to reduce India’s carbon footprint by 30-35% by 2030, the focus on producing green energy mediums has increased. New strides towards establishing better EV manufacturing infrastructure in the country is a work in progress. India hit a milestone with the launch of Chandrayaan 3 and Gaganyaan TV-D1 test flights, estimation states Indian space economy to reach $40 billion by 2040.

    This year, technologies like AI, machine learning, Robotics, and Automation will take centre stage in bringing innovations to life, and with the active roll-out of 5G services and the upcoming 6G technology in the wireless segment, advancements in IoT (Internet of Things), augmented reality and other connected technologies are also expected. In this context, India is pacing towards becoming a leading digital economy in the world.

    Some eminent leaders from the world of technology share their perspectives with ELE Times on how far we have come and the road ahead in terms of technology and its implementation in various sectors.

    Devendra Kumar Sharma, President and COO, at

    Devendra Kumar Sharma, President and COO, at, speaks about Generative AI and how its rapid advancement will influence industrial roles in many sectors.

    “The year showed the potential of transformative impact of advanced AI, particularly through LLM-based applications like ChatGPT. Generative AI has set off an explosive phase of growth, with the introduction of transformer models such as GPT-3.5, GPT-4, and Google’s Bard. One of the most significant potentials of generative AI lies in its ability to redefine the customer and employee experience across various touch points, including call centres and digital channels.

    “As we see it, 2024 will be a year that will unleash unprecedented innovation, especially with the strategic pairing of conversational AI and generative AI. We believe the combination of conversational AI and generative AI will influence customer experience, employee engagement, search experience and the role of automation in enterprises. It will play a pivotal role in helping banks, financial services firms, insurance companies and e-commerce platforms meet diverse demands and achieve hyper-personalization at scale. New use cases will emerge around tasks like conversation classification, text summarization, sentiment analysis, answering questions and executing complex tasks with immersive experiences that involve multimodal AI. To realize this immense potential, businesses need to make themselves ‘AI-ready’ and draw out strategies on how to deliver value through industry-specific implementations while ensuring responsible use of AI technologies for enforcing data privacy and compliance.”
