UST Global recognizes diversity as a strength and is happy to partner with these efforts and highlight contributions.”

The ambient intelligence is growing around us in the form of IoT devices and context-sensitive data-intensive algorithms which transforms the way we interact with the world every day. The shift from Digital Native to AI-First, and eventually AI Native is unfolding right in front of our very eyes, at a very fast pace. For an organization’s success in industry 4.0 world, they need to embrace the democratization of AI and take skilling-up very seriously.”
