The modern technologies like AI and M2M (machine to machine) and data science are further going to change the world
Industry should seriously start working on (artificial intelligence) AI and M2M (machine-to-machine) for achieving the goal of Aatmanirbhar Bharat, as the government is keen on utilising these latest technologies, said Sanjay Dhotre, Union Minister on Thursday. The minister of state for communications and education also said the COVID-19 pandemic has shown people the importance of digital infrastructure.
He added that the survival during this difficult phase was possible due to the connectivity made available to citizens under the Digital India program envisioned by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“The modern technologies like AI and M2M (machine to machine) and data science are further going to change the world. The government is keen on utilising these technologies. Education is another priority area, especially for young citizens and women”.
A balance needs to be achieved between the virtual world and the physical mode of learning, said Chairman Anil Sahastrabudhe, while speaking at the conference – All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE).
“Teachers who have never used technology are now using technology more. Therefore, the future lies in blended learning when part of programmes can run online, distance mode. Unless we do that, humanity will be at a loss”, Sahastrabudhe said.
He further said over 1.5 lakh teachers have been trained in the last one year to teach new technologies – AI and M2M, cyber security, robotics, cloud computing, quantum computing and internet of things.
