The Pandit Ravi Shankar Shukla University, in collaboration with Nagarjuna Postgraduate Science College, organized a two-day seminar at the Pandit Sunderlal Sharma Library in Raipur. The theme of the seminar was electronic processing and life-long study.
Academicians Bhaskar Mukherjee from Banaras Hindu University, Dr. Harendra Pal Singh Kalra from Patiala University, Professor Dr. Lakshman Rao from Hyderbad University, Hemant Biswal from IIT Kharagpur, Dr. Shalini Lihitkar from the library and information science department of Nagpur University and Dr. Brijesh Tiwari from Bilaspur Central University presented their views in eight sections during the seminar.
Professor Rajat Moona, director of IIT Bhilai who was the chief guests for the event said that the digital library is a storehouse of knowledge and is playing a significant role in the communication of information.
On the first day of the seminar Hemant Biswal from IIT Kharagpur said that the curriculum in the field of technology is changing every day. New inventions are being created every now and then.
As everything from mobile phones to markets to entire cities has now become ‘smart’, computers have become an essential part of everyone’s life in some form or the other, directly or indirectly. Be it for security, entertainment, education, business or anything else, computers are being used everywhere and for everything.
Vishwal expressed concern over the state of technological development in India. In a time when other countries have 7G network, India is still lagging behind at 4G.
During his speech, Vishwal said that a computer that can reveal the fragrance and the taste of any food will be created in the next 6 months. Soon, the world will have a computer that has all the five senses, just like a human being.
This invention will surely be a breakthrough in the field of food as well as technology. People from all across the world are, till date, largely dependent on knowledge and judgment of human beings in order to determine the fragrance and taste of foods. However, if a computer capable of doing this comes into existence, the arena of food technology will experience a striking transformation.
No more details about the computer have been revealed so far.
