Semiconductor industry in India has emerged as a major focus area. The government is showing interest to boost the sector with the involvement of all other stakeholders.
Dr Anil D Sahasrabudhe, Chairperson of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), called for adaptability of the new technologies, which are fast emerging as driving force for the growth of the institutions.
Addressing a conference titled ‘Embracing Educations AI-driven Revolution’, Dr Sahasrabudhe revealed India’s outlook on semiconductor industry and said, “There is a lot of interest in starting the semiconductor industry in India. These industries are located in Taiwan, in South Korea. Although technology comes from the US, most of the manufacturing happens here and therefore we are building a database of all the languages that are spoken this side by our students so that they can go there and do internships as well," media reports quoted him as saying.
The event saw attendance of experts from around the world. The IT experts involved in imparting online education addressed the most recent technological advances in education and their implications.
Fillon-Ashida Pierrick, a spokesperson for the European Commission, Shreyas Jayasimha, co-founder of Aarna Law, gave inputs on the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and 5G technology.
Pierrick called AI is a complex yet an important learning tool. He called for cracking the limits of the system and getting maximum out of it.
Similarly, Jayasimha called the education imparting platforms important for coming and current generations and exhorted the stakeholders to envision the future of Artificial Intelligence and 5G technology.
Meanwhile, the AICTE chairperson made a mention of National Education Policy (NEP) and said, “No language has been left out of India's world-class education system, including Mandarin, German, French, Japanese, etc.”
Commenting on Indian languages he said, “All languages, including English are equal. There is no overemphasis here on any particular language.”
He cited example of Tamil, Punjabi, Assamese, Marathi, Kannada, Bengali, or Telugu to substantiate his point.
