The two-day summit included paper presentations, speeches, panel discussions and a workshop.

Advising a balanced approach in the keynote address, Soumitra Sen, founder of Storytellers, said, "Go along with digital, but be attached with physical. The emphasis should be on human uniqueness, child-like curiosity and emotional intelligence as unpredictability is essential to outsmart AI."
