In 20In 2016, India, in conjunction with VLDB and Persistent Systems Ltd, hosted a one-day Digital India event. We are really enthusiastic about the opportunities presented by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitious Digital India initiative. It’s a terrific idea to connect a large country like India with high-speed digital highways. one of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s bold proposals for India’s digital future A total of 1.2 billion Indians will be linked, with open data available to everyone. Due to the large amount of India’s population, data takes centre stage in this concept. India-scale data is huge, with 1 billion Aadhar cards and 200 million Jan-Dhan Yojna accounts. Processing such large amounts of data will necessitate the use of specialised big data and analytics expertise.
The Digital India event intends to address these large-scale data concerns in India and how technology may help solve them. It will also serve as a showcase for Indian startups, particularly those working in the field of big data. VLDB Workshops on data administration, database design, and information systems research are among the topics covered. The target audience includes database researchers, vendors, practitioners, application developers, and users. The Digital India Hackathon, which is part of the VLDB, is a one-of-a-kind project to find new and innovative digital technology solutions to address our country’s problems.
MHRD, AICTE, i4C (Institutional Inclusive Innovation Centre), Persistent Systems, and the MHRD Innovation Cell organise the Smart India Hackathon, the world’s largest nation-building initiative, to harness the innovative brilliance of the youth and develop digital products for solving some of the country’s pressing problems, in order to work towards our Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi’s vision for Digital India and promote digital literacy. Its first issue was launched on October 16, 2017 in Pune. It taps into the creativity and innovation of students with different walks of life in engineering, management, and MCA (Masters in Computer Applications), creates a funnel for the ‘Startup India, Stand-up India’ campaign, crowdsources solutions for improving governance and quality of life, and allows students to provide innovative solutions to the country’s and citizens’ most pressing issues. This programme aims to engage engineering college students in solving problems listed on the Smart India website by ministries and industries. Students are required to provide prototypes and ideas if selected; ministries provide the students the chance to continue develop the product. As a result, both students and the government benefit from this. The former gains experience and hands-on experience, whilst the latter receives free technology-based solutions to their concerns. By announcing the best proposals with a financial award, the government creates a sense of competitiveness. A hackathon is a nonstop digital product creation competition in which technology students are given problems to solve and are asked to come up with creative solutions.
“Students would have the opportunity to work on difficulties faced by government agencies and private-sector businesses for which they can provide innovative and world-class solutions,” says the university. SIH2017, SIH2018, SIH2019, and SIH2020 SIH 2021, the five editions of the Smart India Hackathon, have proven to be incredibly useful in enhancing innovation and out-of-the-box thinking among young minds, particularly engineering students from all over India. By hosting the grand finales on campus, CEC Landran observed and partnered with the success of all four editions. Some of the challenges addressed to participants in the Smart India Hackathon were from AICHAPPRAISERS AUCTIONEERS, SSEPL Skills Pvt. Ltd., Orissa Small Scale Industries Association, Cuttack(OSSIA) (MSME) CTTC, and Bhubaneswar (MSME).
He thinks that diversified data and analysis propel healthcare innovation. Data-driven health solutions attempt to improve healthcare segments by integrating healthcare data with developers, innovators, and entrepreneurs, allowing them to create realistic, human-centric solutions to pressing healthcare issues.
Create data-driven employment solutions that empower citizens to plan and succeed in their chosen professions. You can also aid in the simplification of the current process for searching for employment on government job portals. Statistical analytics and heat map-based solutions can be included.
Citizens can use a variety of services on the Internet to obtain government services (without having to visit a government office). Passports, Aadhaar cards, PAN cards, railway reservations, police stations, water/waste management, and many other services are available.
Social Media and Government
Citizens can get government services through a number of online sites (without having to visit a government office). Passports, Aadhaar cards, PAN cards, train bookings, police stations, water and trash management, and a variety of other services are all provided.
By making publicly available data available to farmers, researchers, and consumers, we can help to create a more sustainable food system. Market reports, weather forecasts, surveys, and sensors that give on-demand GPS monitoring and mapping tools are all good places to start. Will assist our country in becoming a good civics and technologically developed country in the world.
