from India and abroad putting forth their knowledge and expertise in diverse aspects of each topic.


Breakout session refers to the discussion among a fragmented portion of the larger population where each fragment conforms to a specific aspect of the summit.

With our breakout session, we aim to provide all the student attendees with a platform to express their views and opinions about the topic being discussed.

Top speaker(s) from each breakout session will enjoy a seat in the panel along side professionals and experts of the respective topics. The summit is going to be covered by media and thus participants will have an opportunity to be featured on national TV and exchange dialogues with professionals on a mass platform.



Artificial Intelligence

AI refers to the machines that simulates human cognitive processes, they mimic the human brain in how they ‘think’ and process. They learn, reason, judge, predict, infer and initiate action.

From SIRI to self-driving cars, artificial intelligence (AI) is progressing rapidly. While science fiction often portrays AI as robots with human-like characteristics, AI can encompass anything from Google’s search algorithms to IBM’s Watson.

On the other hand, Facebook was recently forced to shut down an experiment after two artificial intelligence programs began chatting to each other in their own language. Artificial intelligence (AI) might evolve to the point where humans are no longer in control.

It will be interesting to check on just how fast AI is evolving as well as just how horrifying the potential for mishap is growing. Through our summit we aim to focus and throw light on both sides of the coin.

Blockchain Technology

Blockchain is the biggest trending topic in business right now, yet for many, the technology remains an elusive concept. Quite often, the terms Blockchain and Bitcoin are used synonymously but are totally different.

Over the last decade, the digital world went under great transformation. Blockchain Technology has remarkably powered Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. On conquering the banking and the finance sector, blockchain is on the verge of taking over the other various spheres including medicine, insurance, real estate, IoT, energy etc.

But what is the apprehension against blockchain technology while greater part of the world is expected to embrace it with open arms? Looking at the realistic situation, is the economy actually ready for it? What changes will the system and the environment need to undergo to be blockchain supportive?

Artificial Intelligence Blockchain Technology Superpowers of the near Future Experts will share their opinions and contribute to give us a better and wider perspective on the same. Blockchain professionals and evangelists will briefly explain the blockchain technology and unfold various facts and figures supporting their views on the future of blockchain.

Influencers of Economies – the Potential Superpowers

A country’s ability to exert its influence or to project its powers globally through combined-means of economic, military, technological and cultural strength, as well as diplomatic and soft power influence is a country that fits into definition of the term “Superpower”.

In today’s global scenario the United States stands tall in terms of being an Economic as well as a Political and Militant Superpower. However the same global scenario portrays a picture where the position of the States seems threatened by China, India, Brazil, Russia, Britain and the European Union who are growing not only in terms of their economy but also with respect to their political and military environment.

The question before us is that will the United States continue to hold its position or as per the National Intelligence Council the power will shift to "networks and coalitions in a multipolar world.” How significant will be the role of insignificant countries? Does any other International economic block of the world challenge any of the globally acclaimed potential superpowers in their quest for glory? What impacts will the world have to face if any of these countries take over as the Global superpowers?

This aspect is something that requires clarity and understanding and what better than a panel of highly qualified professionals having an open discussion of the same.
