I am currently working with a Senior Advisor with several startups in fintech, artificial intelligence, and blockchain space. During the last two years with these startups, I have helped build and launch an augmented analytics platform with Rockmetric, a credit risk platform for Rubix Data Sciences, and a patented blockchain ecosystem for Uniris.

In 26 years, I have held leadership roles at McKinsey, Microsoft, IBM, Dun & Bradstreet, IBM, and TCS. As Chief Digital Advisor at Microsoft, I helped launch platforms like the Connected Vehicle, Digital Agriculture, and Smart Cities. Before that, during my 14 years at IBM, I did multiple roles across Consulting, Sales, Project Delivery, Research, and Product Development.

I took a one-year sabbatical from IBM to work for Aadhaar, the world’s most extensive digital identity program. Here I helped develop the Application Authentication Framework, which allows key stakeholders could engage with each other in the UIDAI ecosystem.

I am a regular contributor in leading journals, a keynote speaker at industry forums, the AI & Ethics Journal editorial board, and a TEDx Speaker. Have co-authored books on AI and Blockchain, which Wiley published and was featured in the 20 Best New Fintech Books to Read in 2020 by BookAuthority. I am a member of the MIT Technology Review Global Panel, a Council Member and Contributor for the Forbes Technology Council, and a digital member of the World Economic Forum.

In 2021, I became a board member at IAC, global experts and pioneers in Hyperautomation. Was also nominated as a Senior Research Fellow at the Digital Euro Association. On my own time, I work with animal welfare organizations and am the proud parent of Toffee, a golden labrador retriever.

The Holy Trinity of Transformation — Culture, Sustainability and Leadership
LinkedIn
April 15, 2021
Digital Transformation is not a magic wand; it is a complex yet essential enterprise commitment to change. Companies that have succeeded have reaped significant benefits. The Deloitte Digital Transformation Survey 2020 found that greater digital maturity is associated with better financial performance. The higher-maturity companies in this year’s sample were about 3X more likely than lower-maturity companies to report annual net revenue growth and net profit margins — a pattern that was consistent across industries.

The Future Is Both Automated And Intelligent
Forbes
April 08, 2021
Intelligent Automation (IA) is one of the trending buzzwords of our times. What makes automation smart? Is it new? Why the renewed focus? Bill Gates believed automation to be a double-edged sword when he said: "Automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. ... Automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency."

In AI (Can) We Trust?
Forbes Technology Council
February 09, 2021
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the best thing to happen to our lives. It helps us read our emails, complete our sentences, get directions, do online shopping, get dining and entertainment recommendations, and even make it easier to connect with old friends or make new ones on social media. AI is not only skilling itself at many human jobs; it is also making decisions for us.

The question is whether these decisions can be trusted. To elaborate, does AI-aided recruitment facilitate or reject the right candidate selection? Is the Tinder match made in heaven or by the algorithm? Who is being sent to jail — criminals or innocents predicted by AI bias?

Management Lessons from the world of spies
LinkedIn
September 11, 2019
I claim no originality for this - all credit goes to Stefan Thomke, the William Barclay Harding Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School whose work I am reproducing verbatim. Others like Business Insider have also referenced this in their articles. The piece itself borders between the hilarious and the ominous - hilarious because you will easily recognise organizational stereotypes which are completely Dilbertian in nature; ominous because of the original intent of the work - to disrupt and destabilise foreign institutions and organizations.

Bank Account Portability - Part 2
LinkedIn
December 09, 2016
Bank account number portability will improve competition among banks for acquiring customers and hence increase the acquisition and service cost. Bank account number portability can drive customers of the banks with insufficient service and marketing to comparatively stronger banks. Weaker and smaller banks would have to emphasis on consumer segmentation and for retaining their client base. Banks would be required to provide for higher preliminary investment and service costs for setting up bank account number portability IT infrastructure. Banks would also be required to train their staff to understand and employ the changed processes.

Beyond the Great (Fire) Wall of China
CIO Review
December 15, 2015
The Golden Shield Project, or the GFW (Greater China Firewall) was put in place to regulate internet traffic and it blocks upwards of 90 percent, which translates into more than 2500 sites including the likes of Facebook and Twitter. Loading a non-China hosted web site takes 10-15 seconds more than if it would have been hosted in-country. It is very common for end-users in China to see a 30-second Web page load time for a page that loads in 3 seconds in the UK or Paris. This renders the website or web application unusable. Methods employed by GFW to manage content include DNS blocking, Connection phasing, URL keyword blocking and page content scanning.

Only "Selfish CSR" is sustainable

If the "C"in CSR stands for Corporate, then why should we not follow all corporate practices in the process of executing on social responsibility. Should CSR be unrelated to corporate activity? Why can it not be with selfish interest and with a motive of maximizing gain (albeit not always monetary gain) like all good capitalist logic dictates.

The 100 Most Influential People In AI
AI Newsletter
January 21, 2021
Those who know artificial intelligence (AI) only from science fiction were probably surprised by this Guardian op-ed written by the AI GPT-3.

“Artificial intelligence will not destroy humans,” it says. “Believe me.”

Whether or not you find this reassuring, AI is now integrated into our daily lives. For example, Siri, Amazon, and Facebook rely on narrow (or weak) AI, focused on specific tasks.

General (or strong) AI can do much more, and AI experts now predict that a general AI rivaling or exceeding human intelligence is on its way. Even if we never reach this ‘singularity,’ AI will change how we do business, learn, drive, and even create.

To help you keep up with these developments, we’ve compiled a diverse list of researchers, business leaders, entrepreneurs, and journalists who bring unique perspectives on AI.

5 Keynotes
TEDx Talk by Samiran Ghosh - Is Eternal Life Possible
YouTube
September 04, 2020
I revisited my TEDx Talk very recently and realized how relevant it was to the new world in transition. All of us seem to be redefining our lives and I thought - why not add some sub-titles and upload a Ver 2.0 of this talk. We all seem to be a new version of ourselves (or at least trying to figure out one).

A big challenge with these talks is not being able to choose one's subject but work with the one provided  -  and an abstract one at that. Further, working with Microsoft at that point in time also had its challenges  -  adopting any position on the future of technology would be grounds for disqualification.

At the same time, the expectation was that there would be some unique and thought-provoking insights leveraging my experience. I chose to interpret 'Coming Back to Life' in as many ways as I could  - eternal life,  another life, a second life, a better life, the life you always wanted to live. But to be able to speak with conviction, I had to speak on something close to my heart." That's how my favorite comic characters, movies, and my golden labrador, Toffee found their way into the talk - along with their unique philosophies!

The Fourth Industrial Revolution , normally characterized by the utilization of new technologies such as artificial intelligence, 3D printing, blockchain , Internet of Things, 5G among others — has ushered in a new era of economic disruption with uncertain socio-economic consequences, especially for the Global South.

Samiran Ghosh has worked at the intersection of Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain, especially in the context of the global south.

14 Smart Ways To Keep Your Dev And Sales Teams On The Same Page
Forbes
September 01, 2020
In a tech company, the people selling your product usually aren’t the same ones who developed it. Your sales numbers and customer retention can significantly decline if the members of your sales team don’t fully understand your product’s capabilities and functionality. They may under-promote it, leaving out key details that could close the deal, or make unrealistic promises about the product, leaving new customers disappointed and more likely to move on.

As a tech leader, you need to do your part to keep your company’s IT and sales teams on the same page. Here’s how the members of Forbes Technology Council recommend encouraging greater collaboration between these two departments.

WHY AI CONTINUES TO FAIL AT VALUE-LADEN DECISION MAKING
Boundless Podcast
July 15, 2020
“With AI on a global scale, certain developing nations could leverage the ‘leapfrog effect’. This can occur when a late technological entrant has the two distinct advantages of learning from first movers and of not living with legacy.” Samiran Ghosh

️ This is a conversation with Samiran Ghosh. Samiran has held leadership roles with IBM, Microsoft and McKinsey and he’s worked on the world's largest digital identity program. Samiran has authored chapters on blockchain and AI in books published by Wiley and is a TEDx speaker and Forbes Tech Council member.

In this episode, Samiran talks about:
1.) why embedding ethics and morality in machines is so difficult despite having a thousand years of common law
2.) whether it’s fair that we hold AI decision making to higher standards than human decision making
3.) how difficult it is to ever say whether technology is doing good or bad.

Uniris
December 09, 2019
What if technology could finally simplify your daily life without jeopardizing your security? What if you were told that you already have this technology? Uniris promise is to provide access to all technologies with a simple touch of your finger while protecting your identity. The Uniris team has developed an ultra-secure and tamper-proof technology that is as secure as a chip of a Bank card. It allows you to replace any password, key or other authentication device by simply reading inside your fingers.

To operate on a global human scale without control or intervention of any person, company or state, this "open source" technology is based on a new generation network called "Blockchain". To achieve the scale and adoption we improved the blockchain technology so that it can replace any application or service: open your car or home door, identify yourself or pay online without risk to your data or goods, always have your medical record accessible yet protected ... This technology just works from the very first use regardless of where you are.

To function and reward people who host a network server (miner), a Blockchain is built around a cryptocurrency (UCO in the case of Uniris). This currency is created at the start of the project to finance all developments thus making each investor, a real participant in the construction of this New World from the very first moment of inception.

A Truly Decentralized and Limitless Network

September 09, 2019
Cryptocurrency economy introduced a disruptive way to invest & protect assets, irrespective of government or regulatory instability. Yet it remains a promise to be delivered. Uniris aims to deliver that promise of secure, scalable, decentralized World. After 4 years of research, Uniris introduces ARCH consensus that provides 10-9 risk of fraud even at 90% malicious network activity unlike dBFT, dPoS or DAG. Similarly, even after a decade of mathematically proven trust of blockchains, mass adoption remains a pipe dream. Uniris brings mass adoption by providing the missing link of Human/Computer interaction by using a tamper-proof biometric authentication inside a new blockchain ecosystem - truly decentralized and designed to survive for centuries.

How AI Is Learning to Identify Toxic Online Content

Date : February 10, 2021

The prevalence of hateful or offensive language online has been growing rapidly in recent years, and the problem is now rampant. In some cases, toxic comments online have even resulted in real life violence, from religious nationalism in Myanmar to neo-Nazi propaganda in the U.S. Social media platforms, relying on thousands of human reviewers, are struggling to moderate the ever-increasing volume of harmful content.

In 2019, it was reported that Facebook moderators are at risk of suffering from PTSD as a result of repeated exposure to such distressing content. Outsourcing this work to machine learning can help manage the rising volumes of harmful content, while limiting human exposure to it. Indeed, many tech giants have been incorporating algorithms into their content moderation for years.
