Product description


Bridgital Nation offers a penetrating look at today's India, and suggests a novel approach for reimagining automation as a human aid, not a replacement (Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft)

Bridgital Nation is a beautifully written book, with its authentic view of India from the trenches coupled with an ambitious vision for the country. It brings to life the challenges of jobs and access to basic services like health and education through real-life narratives of people across India. This book shows how the deliberate use of AI and machine learning, coupled with human skills, can solve these issues and place India on an accelerated path to growth and prosperity. This book is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand today's India and how it could be a force to be reckoned with in the coming decade (Indra Nooyi, former CEO, PepsiCo)

The economic challenges facing the world require us to bring people and technology together. Bridgital shows that with creative new approaches, success is possible (Michael Bloomberg, CEO, Bloomberg L.P.)

An absolutely brilliant book, based on deep analysis and rooted in practical insights. N. Chandra and Roopa Purushothaman combine decades of experience of applying technology to problems at scale and macroeconomic development, respectively. Bridgital is an original idea, to simultaneously find a way for India to create jobs and also improve access to services, using the latest technology. This book is a must-read for those aspiring to solve India's seemingly intractable challenges, at speed and population scale (Nandan Nilekani, co-founder and chairman, Infosys, and founding chairman, UIDAI (Aadhaar))

Innovation focused on creating access and building markets has been the core of economic development for countries throughout the world, and India is no different. Chandra helped build one of India's most innovative and successful companies, and so knows first-hand what creating this growth requires. What Chandra and Roopa propose in Bridgital Nation is an extremely insightful look at how India can harness technological innovation to transform its economy (Clayton Christensen, professor of business administration, Harvard Business School)

This is a fascinating and important book. The authors intelligently describe the pressing challenges that India faces but also the opportunities to overcome them provided by technology and smart policy. Bridgital Nation brings a scholarly attention to data and analysis as well as street smarts and common sense-a rare combination! I read it and found myself nodding in agreement and just hoping that India's leaders read it carefully (Fareed Zakaria)

Product Description

It is 2030. India is among the world's top three economies. All Indians use the cloud, artificial intelligence and automated learning to either do their job or get their job done. All Indians have access to quality jobs, better healthcare and skill-based education. Technology and human beings coexist in a mutually beneficial ecosystem.

This reality is possible. It is within reach. With Bridgital.

In this groundbreaking book, chairman of Tata Sons, N. Chandrasekaran presents a powerful vision for the future. To the coming disruption of artificial intelligence, he proposes an ingenious solution, where India is perfectly positioned to pave a unique path from the rest of the world. Instead of accepting technology as an inevitable replacement for human labour, India can use it as an aid; instead of taking them away, AI can generate jobs.

Chandrasekaran and his co-author, Roopa Purushothaman, chief economist of the Tata Group, survey the country for inspirational stories of resilience and determination, and seek the ideal way to bring Indians closer to their dreams. Through on-ground application of the dynamic approach to technology called 'Bridgital', they show how Indians can be connected across the country, creating a network of services to be delivered where they are most required. This brilliant, cutting-edge concept will address India's biggest challenges by bridging the huge chasm between rural and urban, illiteracy and education, aspirations and achievement. From healthcare to education to business, the model can be applied in various sectors, and, by a conservative estimate, it can create and impact 30 million jobs by 2025.

One of the country's foremost industry leaders and pioneers, N. Chandrasekaran brings his expertise of over thirty years with the Tata Group to offer a blueprint for building a prosperous India, where everyone is included in the growth story.
