    Innovation is a matter of survival with Rohit Singh

    Innovation is a matter of survival with Rohit Singh

    "If you don't innovate, you will struggle to exist in times to come."


    According to Rohit Singh, Head of Innovation & Digital Disruption at FS Lighthouse, KPMG, companies need to embrace emerging technologies in order to survive. Despite uncertainties around data privacy and security, it's important that businesses start to test ideas for incorporating innovative tools into their workflows. And rather than defining the role of generative AI, they need to define what makes their service essential, or customers might go straight to AI for solutions.


    In this episode, Curvestone CEO Dawid Kotur speaks with Rohit Singh about innovation and particularly generative AI. Listen to dig into the challenges facing companies trying to innovate now with these tools, the risks if they don't, and some intelligent speculation about what the future holds.
