This has put the need to coexist in a nurturing environment to confront the needs and challenges together. We must realize that change is here and the change is now and the onus is on us that how we adapt to the challenges of the future and define the learning evolution of re-skilling. The amalgamation of Artificial Intelligence, technology and humans has softened the line of distinction between natural and artificial. This has resulted in a pivot of roles and responsibilities. Or so to say, as this year's theme suggests, "Blurring Boundaries, Uncharted Frontiers", it is about working together in harmony and traverse through uncharted waters.
