  1. Mr. Technocracry, you think AI is going to be a good thing? Another perspective was offered by Frank Herbert in his Dune series of books — of course it's only fiction, but sometimes fiction can elevate to the level of prophecy: "JIHAD, BUTLERIAN: (see also Great Revolt) — the crusade against computers, thinking machines, and conscious robots begun in 201 B.G. and concluded in 108 B.G. Its chief commandment remains in the O.C. Bible as "Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a human mind."[32] Tolkien, in The Lord of the Rings, introduced the concept of the ringwraith, which seems to be the end result of transhumanism. Would you, personally, really like to become a ringwraith? The fictional ringwraiths were slaves of Sauron and the One Ring, whereas the transhumanists will be slaves of the AI. Maybe also it would be a good idea to take a look at the Bible — the antichrist concept. Very likely antichrist will be the AI.

  2. The first priority for India is addressing climate change and WATER. This is where the focus needs to be. For example, could we use drones and AI to plant more trees, (already being done). India has lot of manpower, but no one wants to work much on land. There are many other water saving, water growing technologies we should invest in.

  3. india no need to invest on AI, when many countries invested in AI's, someone will always comes with a cheaper price and looking for buyers. India will be one of the biggest buyer, Like mobiles cames in US/Europe at the beginning when india find the cheaper alternatives india is leading in DATA/Mobile Usage.

  4. So what you are saying is that Indians should aim to be consumers and not leaders. We are not capable of building but we can buy and depend on US and China and the others. We “should” look at it this way and not even try to lead? That is a pretty sad ambition. Perhaps this is the future but we should aim higher

  5. In india many educated employees also stop learning after getting job specially govenment one.learning never dependent on age factor.we must not stop learning and implementing it till we die this will make india great.
