In honor of “National Technology Day,” Central University of Kashmir (CUKashmir) organized a three-day celebration that ended on Saturday. India has a national holiday on May 11th each year to recognize important technological advancements and to remember the successful nuclear test that was conducted at Pokhran in 1998.

In partnership with DSW and DIQA, the Department of IT organized the event. While “technology, on the other hand, encompasses the practical application of scientific knowledge for solving real-world problems,” science explores the area of comprehending the natural world through observation and experimentation, according to Dr. Zahoor Ahmad Najar’s introductory remarks. As the first speaker, Dr. Abid Hussain Wani of the University of Kashmir discussed solutions to counteract technological dangers in the cyber realm. Tariq Hamid and Mehdi Hafiz, two students, gave presentations on the topics of “AI in Healthcare” and “Startup Ecosystem in India,” respectively.

In his lecture, invited speaker Dr. Mohammad Ahsan Chishti, HoD CSE at NIT Srinagar, emphasized the vital role that technology plays in today’s world, emphasizing the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in fields including manufacturing, healthcare, and education. He talked about how blockchain technology may be used, how AR and VR could revolutionize training and user experiences, and how 5G and 6G technologies could improve connectivity throughout the world.

Er Afaq Alam Khan, the Coordinator of the Department of Information Technology, enumerated in his remarks the technological advances that the nation has made in a number of areas, including telecommunication, software development, artificial intelligence, Aadhar, UPI, and the recent establishment of semiconductor chip fabrication facilities.

Prof. Mohammad Yousuf, Dean of the School of Engineering and Technology, emphasized that the implementation of such programs directs the youthful energy in the appropriate directions and gives students guidance on how to think creatively and unconventionally to solve societal issues.
