Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu has said that it was imperative for countries to join hands and form international alliances to protect and share Data in the present era.

Observing that cyber security and data protection have assumed huge importance, the Vice President said “there is an urgent need to develop a multilateral data-sharing framework that is based on the principles of adequacy and reciprocity”.

Releasing the book titled ‘New-Age Technology and Industrial Revolution 4.0’ written by Rajya Sabha Member, Dr. Narendra Jadhav at Upa Rashtrapati Bhawan, the Vice President said that in order to make the potential benefits from technological advancements more inclusive across countries, it was imperative to close the digital divide among the nation-states.

Naidu stressed the need for using advanced technologies to address and overcome challenges in various sectors such as infrastructure, energy, water, waste management, transportation, real estate and urban planning.

He also opined that the emerging technology could be deployed to augment on-going global efforts at containing the fallout from global warming and climate change.

The Vice President also stressed the need to guard against unsubstantiated, unverified fake information and fake news.

He wanted re-skilling of professionals in the wake of concerns over job displacement or joblessness due to deployment of New-Age Technology.

The Chairman, Konark Publishers, Shri K.P.R. Nair, Vasundhara Jadhav and other eminent persons were present on the occasion.
