Natarajan Chandrasekaran

Chairman, Tata Sons


  • N. Chandrasekaran, chairman of Tata Sons, believes that the pandemic has shown how emerging economies such as India need to accelerate their adoption of digital technology and transform how their governments operate, provide health care, educate people, create new jobs, and enable businesses to thrive.
  • Doing this effectively will require a “bridgital” approach—so named because it’s akin to walking on a bridge whose destination is not clear, but whose path must be highly digital.
  • Countries that take a bridgital approach will use artificial intelligence, cloud computing, internet of things and other technologies to create numerous new jobs while automating inefficient manual work.
