Ficci Ladies Organisation (FLO) organised a very interesting session with Tanmay Bakshi, World’s Youngest IBM Watson programmer, cognitive developer, TEDx Speaker, Algorithmist and Author. The session was held at FICCI on December 22, 2017.
Tanmay Bakshi, is an Indian origin computer genius who fell in love with computers at five, released his first iPhone app at nine, and now at just 13 years old is working with IBM on artificial intelligence. His YouTube series “Tanmay Teaches: Watson” made him the youngest IBM Watson developer.
He was in conversation with Gadget Guru, Rajiv Makhni, who hosts technology shows like ‘Gadget Guru’, ‘Cell Guru’ and ‘NewsNet 3.0’, which air on NDTV 24×7, NDTV Profit and NDTV India. He writes on technology and gadgets for major publications like Hindustan Times, GQ, Outlook, Mansworld, T3.
FLO Vasvi Bharat Ram said, “It is crucial we equip future generations to think about the world in a new way. We are already living in a world dominated by software. Tanmay is an inspiration for us and especially the kids, which is why we invited the children of our members.”
“This was a very special programme and to ensure extensive outreach and benefits, we opened it up for non-members as well. Through this session, we aimed at inspiring everyone with Tanmay’s insights on how we can encourage our next generation to combine mathematics, logic and algorithms in a more comprehensible way and generate further interest in the digital arena.”
Tanmay aspires to inspire at least 100,000 kids, and beginners. FLO wishes all the best for his future endeavours.
