November 03: IIT Delhi has emerged as a breeding ground for innovation, experimentation and development of various advanced technology-backed solutions. In the wake of changing dynamics and needs, owing to the onset of the pandemic and other multitude of challenges, the institute has played a key role in bridging the gap to cater to the new-age problems in recent times.

It can not only enhance the efficiency of the operations but also open new endeavours in the coming time,” says RajatKhare.IIT Delhi‘s another gem is Prashant Warier, the co-founder and CEO of Qure.ai, a firm that uses deep learning to make healthcare accessible and affordable.

Qure.ai interprets CT Scans, X-Rays and MRIs using deep learning technology. It creates automated diagnostic reports to help radiologists make faster and more accurate decisions. Likewise, Srikanth Velamakanni, the co-founder and Group Chief Executive and Vice Chairman at Fractal Analytics, is another entrepreneur who aims to leverage the potential of AI to boost the decision of every human in an enterprise. His problem-solving skills and decision-making are backed by the IIT connection too.
