    #14: The Spiritual Journey Onwards with Anand Dattani

    #14: The Spiritual Journey Onwards with Anand Dattani

    In this episode, Sina Haghighat talks to Anand Dattani about his spiritual journey; exploring his learnings from spending his summers serving and learning from Monks in ashrams across India. Anand covers how he incorporated his learnings from living the Monk life to living the corporate life and states that resilience and consistency are the key ingredients for success in anything that you aspire to do.


    At the age of 15, he started to dive deeper into his spiritual journey through his friend Jay Shetty who later on convinced Anand to move back to London from Cardiff whilst he was at University as he was concerned about his spiritual growth there. It is clear that Anand’s journey has stimulated personal growth and instilled a bulletproof mindset; allowing him to pursue his passions and purpose through his own podcast, ‘The Journey Onwards’, where he talks to amazing individuals to relive their backstory and explores how their upbringing and family culture has shaped their values, character, and views on popular life topics.

    #13: Let's Take This Online with Ryan Clifford, David Sint and Sanaya Khambatta

    In this episode Sina Haghighat talks to Ryan Clifford, David Sint and Sanaya Khambatta about the Summer Institute; a program established through the Tech Allies Network to provide University Students with insights into the working world along with essential skills to give them that competitive edge once they enter the workplace. The program has been offered as a face-to-face program for the last couple of years, but in 2020, due to the global pandemic, the team adapted and offered this program virtually which resulted in hundreds of applications from students all over the world. The program is continuing this year which will include masterclasses, challenges and hands-on activities led by professionals from leading tech companies.


    What Ryan, David and Sanaya have clearly demonstrated is their eagerness and passion to give back to the community and witnessing the growth of students and their appreciation for the initiative is what keeps them motivated to keep this going.


    If you’re around this summer and you are a University student interested in tech or know someone that is, sign up to the summer institute this summer.

    #11: AI In Healthcare with Dr Keith Grimes

    #11: AI In Healthcare with Dr Keith Grimes

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is playing a pivotal role in predictions, clinical decision making and diagnosis; revolutionising the healthcare sector by empowering doctors. AI can predict and diagnose disease at a much faster rate than most healthcare professionals, but will AI replace them?


    In this episode, Dr Keith Grimes takes us through how Babylon Health is utilising AI with the combination of human expertise to 'put an accessible and affordable health service in the hands of every person on Earth'. 


    AI is helping Babylon Health healthcare professionals work faster and more efficiently and has built a platform to provide personalised and interactive healthcare to patients. Also, through the use of AI-powered chatbots the process of reviewing patient's symptoms have been streamlined; with the chatbot recommending a virtual check-in or face-to-face visit with a healthcare professional after the review.
