President Droupadi Murmu stated on September 27 that by the time India celebrates 100 years of independence in 2047, the globe will have undergone a significant transformation. We are unable to imagine how automation and artificial intelligence (AI) will affect life over the next 25 years.
“Just as we were in no position 25 years ago to imagine the contemporary world, we cannot visualise today how artificial intelligence and automation are going to transform our lives. We are looking ahead at the next 25 years as the period to re-imagine India and make it a developed country,” she said while inaugurating the Integrated Cryogenic Engine Manufacturing Facility of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) in Bengaluru.
Cryogenic and semi-cryogenic engines can be produced at the Integrated Cryogenic Engine Manufacturing Facility.
Speaking to the crowd, the President declared that the facility’s opening is a momentous occasion for the entire nation, not just HAL and ISRO.
Being the “power behind the forces,” she claimed, HAL has made significant contributions to the nation’s defence independence in terms of the research, development, and production of several aircraft platforms.
President Murmu praised ISRO for its honest efforts and assistance in helping India become the sixth nation in the world to be able to manufacture cryogenic engines.
“HAL and ISRO together contribute to strategic defence and development. The glorious past of HAL and ISRO gives us an assurance that these organisations will continue to play a significant and positive role in the future as India enters the Amrit Kaal,” President Murmu added.
There will be a virology institute in Bengaluru.
Through video conferencing, President Murmu also lay the cornerstone for the Zonal Institute of Virology (South zone).
“Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) provided exemplary support for effective COVID-19 management and is expanding its research infrastructure,” President Murmu said.
Under the direction of the Indian Council of Medical Research, the National Institute of Virology in Pune is making every effort to advance R&D in the discipline of virology. According to President Murmu, the National Institute of Virology has been named as one of the World Health Organization’s cooperating laboratories.
“The expansion of National Institute of Virology through zonal campuses across the country, to cater to the demand in the various regions, is praiseworthy,” the President said.
