State to organise mega job melas once in three months
Stating that Andhra Pradesh was on the threshold of digital revolution, J.A. Chowdary, Special Chief Secretary and IT Adviser to Chief Minister, on Friday said that the State government had decided to hold mega job melas once in three months to facilitate employment opportunities in the IT, services, and manufacturing sectors.
He was addressing the inaugural of the two-day international conference being organised by the Computer Society of India (CSI) on ‘Digital India in global IT spectrum’ with the theme on ‘Innovate, integrate and transform’.
Mr. Chowdary said that A.P. had taken the lead in digital transformation with initiatives like setting up of International Institute of Digital Technologies (IIDT) in Tirupati to create industry-ready graduates in cyber security and data analytics.
He said they were in the process of establishing Schools of Excellence in FinTech (financial technology) and Blockchain Technology.
Referring to the job mela, he said Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu recently held talks with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella in Mumbai on how to go ahead with plans to organise job melas regularly on a grand scale.
Focus on new-age technologies would be the key to success, he said, and added that with disruptive technologies posing several challenges, robotics, artificial intelligence, analytics and cyber security would play an important role.
“Now the time has come for our graduates to upgrade their skills by gaining knowledge on futuristic technologies,” he pointed out.
Mr. Chowdary said that at a time when renewable resources were shrinking and population was exploding, the students should grab the new opportunities by taking up courses in emerging technologies to face the challenges posed by digital revolution.
He also pointed out how conventional doctors would become redundant with the introduction of IBM cognitive analytics to make diagnostics easy and cost-effective. In factories too robotics would play a big role. Transparency
RINL CMD P. Madhusudan lauded the efforts made by the Centre and the State to usher in a digital revolution.
Stating that digitisation would offer better delivery of products and services, he said it would also help bridge the digital divide in the urban and rural areas.
On smart cities and smart governance, he said adopting new technologies would pave the way for transparency and e-governance.
Former Scientific Adviser to Union Government S.V. Raghavan gave a presentation on digital life, expectations and infrastructure.
CSI Vizag chapter chairman and RINL director (operations) D.N. Rao presided.
