‘Low quality of higher education a big concern’ | Thiruvananthapuram News (via Qpute.com)


Thiruvananthapuram: Chief operating officer of UST Global Manu Gopinath said that students in engineering colleges in the state should develop soft skills as better communication with clients was important to understand their requirements.
He said that the quality of higher education was low and students should get opportunities to work on emerging technologies. Gopinath was speaking on the sidelines of the fourth edition of the two-day annual developer conference ‘D3’ (Dream, Develop, Disrupt) of the UST Global, which concluded here on Friday.
The students should get opportunities to try out new-age technologies in both hardware and software sector, he said.
Sajesh Gopinath, general manager, UST SmartOps, elaborated on one of their flagship product ‘UST Smartops’, which leverages the advantages of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) on business processes, which is an emerging technology called ‘intelligent process automation’.
“Under SmartOps, we are currently targeting on three verticals such as banking, retail and healthcare. The AI and ML can be used for various services such as mortgage lending in banking or processing of claims in healthcare,” Sajesh said.
Chief information officer Sunil Kanchi said that UST Global has made four major acquisitions and another four investments in the past six months. He said that they have invested in both product and service firms. One of the interesting firms in which UST has recently invested in is Tastry, which used AI for consumers to select vine according to their taste.
UST Global authorities said that a new campus will be opened in Kochi, which will add to their existing 8,000 employees in Kerala.
The theme of D3 2019 was ‘speed’. Participants could listen to technology and industry domain leaders on the imperatives of speed covering topics such as quantum computing, edge computing and 5G and how they can be harnessed to transform high-speed computing and communication.
