In opening the session, NarayanaMurthy(Infosys)
hypothetical situation where 20 executives
board an airplane and are told that the
flight that they are about to take is the
first-ever to feature pilotless technology:
It is an uncrewed aircraft.
Each one of the CEOs is then told, privately,
that their company's software is running
the aircraft's automatic pilot system.
Nineteen of the CEOs promptly leave the aircraft,
each offering a different type of excuse.
One CEO alone remains on board the jet, seeming
very calm indeed. Asked why he is so confident in this
first uncrewed flight, he replies: "If it's the
same software that runs my company's IT systems,
this plane won't even take off."
