Stressing on the importance of machine and deep learning, the key highlights of the programme included a discourse on managing expectations of the next-gen workforce through AI-based HR practices, using HR analytics to make effective talent decisions for organisations and guiding HR professionals in the use of advanced techniques for better business decisions.

Delivering the inaugural address, Mr Banga said, “Human resource management is of prime importance for any organisation to achieve its objectives. IoT, which will be driving the fourth industrial revolution with AI at its core, is going to play a vital role in the way we utilise our manpower. Organisations which embrace technology and reskill their workforce to drive change will reap the benefit and be ahead of the curve. At Tata Power-DDL, we are implementing AI for predictive analysis for employee needs and satisfaction and social media analytics for sentimental clustering and default prediction, apart from use and implementation in operations.”

Sushil Kumar Srivastava, chief, HR and administration, Tata Power-DDL, and S Samanta, head, IT, Tata Power-DDL, were also present at the event along with business leaders, human resource management professionals, trainers / management consultants from academia and professionals from government and voluntary organisations involved with people development.
