Jayesh Ranjan, who was the chief guest at the conference, observed that “We cannot compromise on privacy. We have done a lot of work in the area of Data Science. We were the first State in the country to craft a clear-cut policy. Though Sikkim was the first State, but compared to the size of that State, Telangana was the first large State in India to come out with the dedicated policy on matters related to Data. The policy which was announced in 2016 was well appreciated. We have put some government data on the Public Platform. This open Data is very rich in content. It has information on 150 plus companies and is the single source of ready reckoner on 250 relevant resources. It provides real-time wealth of information on Agriculture, Agri produces’ prices, spatial data such as the information of market yards and so on. But, we have done very little on Healthcare due to privacy and security related issues”, Ranjan informed
