It has been Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology’s endeavour to promote emerging areas of technology to induce progressive developments and competitive advantage across board. Some of the technology areas initiated by the Ministry to increase the country’s e-readiness include:
Quantum Technologies (QT) is one of the most promising game changer emerging technology. Development of QT encompasses a wide range of varied thematic areas mainly such as computing, communication, meteorology, cryptography and sensing. QT has the potential of bringing a paradigm shift in different field such as medical, finance, engineering, logistics, defense, governance and etc. Desperate efforts are putting all over the globe in research and development of QT. It is the high-time that we should make our country ready for the quantum leap to gain maximum from the momentum of the quantum wave in the future.
Blockchain, is a Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), makes the history of any digital asset unalterable and transparent through the use of decentralization and cryptographic hashing. Hence, enabling trust in the digital world using technology and improves transparency and accountability. It believes that this technology will enable to enhance the quality of the services provide to citizens as well as bring in more efficiency and transparency to Government processes.
