NEW DELHI: Union education minister Dharmendra Pradhan launched the Bharatiya Bhasha Utsav and inaugurated the two-day Technology and Bharatiya Bhasha Summit today, September 30. The summit aims to facilitate a seamless transition from the current education ecosystem to one rooted in Bharatiya languages, in accordance with NEP 2020 vision.
An exhibition was also set up to showcase Bharatiya Bhasha technology products and their applications by industries, government organisations and start-ups. In the event, students of Kendriya Vidyalaya shared their experiences in 22 different languages.
While addressing the summit, Pradhan said, "India, being one of the oldest civilisations in the world has an extremely close and inseparable relationship with technology. Scholars from across the globe have come for centuries to understand the Indian knowledge".
He emphasised that the fusion of Indian languages and technology will open doors to limitless possibilities for the talent pool of the country.
The summit, organised as part of the Bharatiya Bhasha Utsav focused around three themes.
- Technology for Bharatiya Languages
- Technology in Bharatiya Languages
- Technology THROUGH Bharatiya Languages
In these sessions, experts discussed ways to leverage technology for Bharatiya languages. Discussions were also held during these sessions on the use of technology in the teaching and learning of Bharatiya languages, the use of machine learning, language modelling for speech recognition, the standardisation of Bharatiya language scripts using Unicode, and other significant topics. Following each session, the audience and presenters engaged in lively debate.
These themes will divert the focus on how technology is used to promote Bharatiya Bhasha, including how it is used for training, testing, and translating educational resources.
The summit was jointly organised by the Ministry of Education (MoE), Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), and their constituent institutions, such as the Central Institute of Indian Languages (CIIL), University Grants Commission (UGC), National Educational Technology Forum (NETF), All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), National Centre for Vocational & Technical Education (NCVTE), National Council for Teachers Education (NCTE), Bharatiya Bhasha Samiti (BBS), and others.
