ResCon2022 Talk Notes

Yesterday evening at ResCon22 at Narsee Monjee’s Mukesh Parel School of Technology Management & Engineering there was a climate panel among sessions on Quantum Computing and Data Science, which is on par for a computing school. I was honored to share premium intellectual real estate with Prof Arnab Dutta of IITB who spoke on Carbon Storage and Dr Ashish Rana from Reliance who presented on Energy Innovation. I shared my two cents on ESG as the bridge between climate change and the energy transition.

It was a packed audience of computing students listening to an engaged panel on waste management, green cover and CSS.

Thank you to Virati and Roushan from the organising team for the invitation and the excellent hospitality.


Consultants as Platforms

Wicked problems such as Climate Change are multi scalar and multidisciplinary where context is paramount. The problem solving needs to be transdisciplinary, but the research community is tied by metrics that are narrow. Hence think tanks and consultants become the platform there as connectors and translators.
