AI offers great potential for education: PM Modi @ G20

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi stressed on the role of G20 countries in striking the right balance between the opportunities and challenges posed by digital technology, which he termed as a force multiplier in increasing access to education and adapting to future needs.
Addressing a G20 Education Ministers' Meeting held in Pune via video message today, the Prime Minister touched upon the potential of Artificial Intelligence which offers great potential in the field of learning, skilling and education. The Prime Minister stressed that G20 countries with their respective strengths can play a crucial role in promoting research and innovation, especially in the Global South. He urged the dignitaries to create a path for increased research collaborations.

Continuous skilling, re-skilling, and up-skilling are key to making youth future-ready, said Prime Minister noting that education is not only the foundation upon which India's civilization has been built, but it is also the architect of humanity's future.
"Education is at the root of all these efforts", the Prime Minister said, as he expressed confidence that the outcome of the meeting will be an inclusive, action-oriented and future-ready education agenda.
"This would benefit the whole world in the true spirit of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam - One Earth, One Family, One Future", the Prime Minister said.
PM Modi emphasized that foundational literacy forms a strong base for the youth and that India is combining it with technology, and highlighted the 'National Initiative for Proficiency in Reading with Understanding and Numeracy'', or 'Nipun Bharat' initiative by the Government and expressed happiness that 'Foundational Literacy and Numeracy' has been identified as a priority by G20 as well.
