"We have developed SatSure decision intelligence platform to offer unique risk management solutions to organisations working in the agriculture vertical. Our platfrom combines drones and satellite imagery with machine learning and big data analytics," he said.  

Haptik, an end-to-end chatbot platform which started operation in 2008, is working with AWS to further expand their product for enterprise users. "When  apps launched and everybody wanted to do chatbots. We have done it in a more consumer centric and help the client to get the stickiness," said Haptik CEO and founder Akrit Vaish.

He said Haptik is using AWS AI tools in a big way to build its offerings including bot builder, bot analytics and agent dashboard for monitoring and mangement.

"I am pleased to know that the event gave an overview on AI tools are called Lex, Polly and Rekognition," said Sandeep, a student from a Bengaluru Engineering College. "Lex is the technology that powers Amazon Alexa, and allows developers to integrate rich conversational experiences in their offerings," he said.

AWS Chief Technology Officer  Werner Vogels   said at AWS re:Invent conference in Las Vegas that everything in the world can be connected and become an input or output device on the network creating a new kind of hybrid cloud.

"While the world may not need yet another definition of "hybrid cloud," there's no question that the rise of IoT will put unprecedented new pressure on both on-premise and cloud architectures," he said.

AWS, which registered revenue growth of  42% in the third quarter beating Wall Street's expectations, is predicted to have $13 billion revenues in 2017.
