Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday that the mission to digital India, which was initiated 5 years ago, was not treated as any normal government intervention and now has become a way of life, particularly for those who are poor and oppressed and for those within the government. He believed “technology first was their style of governance.
“India is exceptional in its position to jump forward during the news era. We have both the best thoughts and the highest market. Our local application solutions have the global potential… It is time for technical solutions which are developed in India but which are implemented worldwide,” said the Bengaluru Tech Summit 2020 in a virtual address.
At the Summit, Prime Minister Scott Morrison from Australia claimed that India and Australia are open to infinite opportunities to collaborate together on space exploration, essential minerals, 5G, artificial intelligence, quantum computing, and so on.
Mr. Modi argued that technology ensured that the poor received sufficient and fast assistance during the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) lockout peak. “Technology has given us confidence that in a brief amount of time, we will vaccinate our vast population. Technology has also played an important part in the growth of Ayushman Bharat, the world’s largest healthcare program,” he added.
When speaking of the Swamitva regime of the government, he noted that an ambitious scheme to grant the titles of land to millions of rural people is being introduced using technologies such as drones. “Not only can certain conflicts come down, but citizens will still be encouraged. Technology technologies will bring prosperity if property rights are granted.”
The Prime Minister pointed out that with increasingly growing technologies, data privacy and cybersecurity were very important. He called on young people to play a major role in designing robust strategies for protection that, he says, would effectively “vaccinate digital products against cyber attacks and viruses.”
“We are in the core of the information age and transition was ‘disruptive and wonderful.’ Industrial accomplishments are in the rear mirror, and now we are in the information age. The government has taken steps to alleviate IT sector enforcement pressures. Future is coming faster than expected.”
