I can say with utmost confidence that 5G will enable India to not only participate in the Fourth Industrial Revolution but also to lead it’. Jio Platforms, with its family of over 20 start-up partners, has built world-class capabilities in Artificial Intelligence, Cloud Computing, Big Data, Machine Learning, Internet of Things, Blockchain, etc. ‘We are creating compelling home-grown solutions in Education, Healthcare, Agriculture, Infrastructure, Financial Services and New Commerce. Each of these solutions, once proven in India, will be offered to the rest of the world to address global challenges. ‘As the digitalisation of the Indian economy and Indian society picks up speed, the demand for digital hardware will grow enormously. We cannot rely on large-scale imports in this area of critical national need. ‘Thanks to Shri Ravi Shankar ji’s focused efforts, many leading Global companies are coming to India to set up manufacturing facilities. India has developed world-class strengths in chip design. I clearly foresee India becoming a major hub for state-of-the-art semiconductor industry. ‘When all the stakeholders work together, we can surely ensure that India’s success in hardware will match our success in software’, Mr Ambani added.
