Vaz is also excited about the use of new tech such as robotics and artificial intelligence at Swiggy. Referring to a news article, Vaz shared on LinkedIn:

The food industry will be disrupted by technology innovation such as robotic kitchens, IoT-controlled devices, drone-based or unmanned deliveries, molecular food science and more. Super exciting space to be for a technologist!
