A troubleshooter on the track

Meet the team behind our work with Formula E's Envision Virgin Racing team

Amogh Kaliwal, a keen problem solver since childhood, is now using the power of artificial intelligence and analytics to help Envision Virgin Racing win on the track.

Amogh joined Genpact two years ago as part of our artificial intelligence (AI) practice. “I have grown so much professionally since joining the Genpact family… Especially by working on our AI-based platform, Genpact Cora, where we bring together the power of automation and analytics with our deep industry and process expertise. It's an exhilarating experience!" he says.

Learning and loving it

Although working with electric cars was never on Amogh's radar, he's thrilled to be a part of the Envision Virgin Racing team, especially because each race brings with it a new learning experience.

Insights and alternative data

“I head up our work to create driver profiles, helping Envision Virgin Racing identify opportunities to speed ahead on the tracks," he tells me.

It's no easy task. Amogh's analytic derivations and insights need to be on point to help drivers determine when to overtake or block their competitors at which points on a track. “We get most of the insights from an alternative source of data, and use Genpact Cora's AI capabilities to uncover the insights," he says.
