Techshots, a subsidiary of Messy Desk Media, a new-age information platform for IT community and Mumbai-based Engineering college, Vivekanand Education Society’s Institute of Technology (VESIT) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU)  to develop Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools to predict buying patterns of enterprise Information Technology decision-makers in India.

As per the agreement, VESIT’s Department of Computer Engineering will work closely with the product and editorial team of TechShots to develop the tool in a span of a year. VESIT will also create tools to summarize and paraphrase content for Techshots.

The tool will help the enterprise IT market, having a transaction of around USD 100 MN per year in India, to move faster by adding intelligence to buying and selling decisions in the sector.
