NEW DELHI: Students of Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi) to address the pressing need for preserving cultural heritage digitally have come up with various technology interventions using Augmented & Virtual Reality (AR & VR), 3D printing, AI and IoT.

IIT Delhi along with Department of Science and Technology (DST) is come up with International Heritage Symposium and Exhibition (IHSE) around the frequently articulated need for preserving India’s rich cultural heritage digitally, for the future generations.

Vizara Technologies, a start-up working in this space has made enormous strides by recreating our cultural heritage using AR, VR, MR and AI technologies etc. We all know that the future is all about the convergence of technology in all aspects of our life and this event is a step towards discussing some of the key issues that challenge us in preserving our heritage. I am of the view that we need to step up efforts significantly.”
