Machined to Think Gallery
On the occasion of the National Technology day on 9th May 2019, an exhibition “Machined to Think”, which provides a bird’s eye view into the technologies that are destined to usher in what is now hailed as the “fourth industrial revolution”, was inaugurated by Padma Vibhushan, Dr Anil Kakodkar Sir, at the Nehru Science Centre.
The combination of IoT technologies, digital tools, robotics, machine intelligence and 5G networks and all their building blocks, which will be central to the fourth industrial revolution, will provide a wealth of opportunities for cooperation between machined to think technologies and humans to bring about a paradigm shift and vastly improve productivity and speed up the delivery of services for the welfare of our citizens. It is therefore necessary that students in particular and public at large are prepared to face the many diverse and fascinating challenges in understanding this new technological revolution to cope up and shape the fourth industrial revolution. It is this necessity of educating the public about the fourth industrial revolution, which is likely to fundamentally change the way we live, work, and relate to one another, that we at the Nehru Science Centre decided to curate the Machined to Think Gallery. The scale, scope and complexity of the fourth industrial revolution, some experts predict, will be something which the humankind has never experienced before.
