/ -- FULCRUM 2019, an AI conclave by the Aditya Birla Group (ABG), concluded after two days of interactive sessions, networking, and idea exchanges. The event was presented by ABG's Group Data and Analytics (GDNA) Cell, in association with the Analytics India Magazine on 2-3 December at St Regis in Mumbai.

The conference witnessed participation from more than 200+ attendees from companies across the Aditya Birla Group, 18+ external companies and 35+ speakers over the course of two days. With more than 25+ talks, FULCRUM generated exceptional content in the form of thought-provoking keynotes, knowledge-filled sessions, lively panel discussions, and interesting contests.

The key experience for most of the attendees was the give-and-take of knowledge and technical expertise, especially in the areas of data and analytics. The event helped participants to understand and absorb the latest developments in data analytics and Al for value generation in their businesses. The main attraction for the attendees was the exchange of ideas between the businesses in ABG, as well as an opportunity to learn from each other.

The event also recognised excellence in the form of AI Evangelism awards and felicitated individuals who are enabling data-driven decision making, using AI for effective planning and innovation, among others.

The event ended with a bang after a competition called 'Kaun Banayega Crorepati' with ABG senior leaders. The event was filled with AI-related trivia which was both challenging as well as enlightening.

The GDNA Cell, which presented FULCRUM, is the Big Data and Analytics arm of the Aditya Birla Group created at its centre to strategize and partner with Group Businesses to deliver on its strategic priorities through the power of Al. It represents strong analytics and domain expertise drawn from the best-in-class talent from leading Global and Indian Businesses that leverage cutting edge tools and technologies built on a highly scalable and robust big data infrastructure to mine and action petabytes of structured and unstructured data in seconds.

Bhasker Gupta, Founder & CEO at Analytics India Magazine said, "Working with ABG for FULCRUM has been a very insightful experience for us. It was great to see the close-knit ecosystem of ABG interacting and sharing ideas -- especially in the thriving area of data analytics and AI. This is a field that most companies are trying to ace at and utilise. And that's why it is so inspiring to see how the ABG's GDNA Cell has brought together different experts from different backgrounds under one roof -- all with one agenda - progress."
