Bill Gates and PM Modi discuss the 2023 G20 Summit

Talking on the 2023 G20 Summit, which India presided over and finished last year, PM Modi stated, "As you may have noticed, the Summit's proceedings took a lot of turns." We held lengthy discussions prior to the G20 Summit. We have, in my opinion, now brought the G20's fundamental goals and purposes into the mainstream. I hope that your personal experience confirms this.

Bill Gates responded, saying, "It's great that India is hosting the G20 because it is much more inclusive." He discussed topics such as technological innovations and the fact that cooperation between the south and the north might involve much more than just talking.We would like to work with you to attempt to take your previous successes in India to even greater heights, as our foundation is quite excited about what you have done there.

Bill Gates and PM Modi discuss India's digital revolution

Speaking about India's digital revolution, Prime Minister Modi stated that international delegates to the G20 meeting in Indonesia expressed interest in learning more about the nation's digital revolution. I told them that in order to avoid monopolies, technology has been made more accessible. For the people, it is done by the people.

Bill Gates commended India, stating that it has a "digital government." India, he claimed, is not just adopting technology, but setting the standard.

PM Modi tells Bill Gates about 'Namo Drone Didi' scheme

In his conversation with Bill Gates, Prime Minister Modi discussed the 'Namo Drone Didi' initiative and emphasized its role in advancing technology in the nation, particularly among women.

He remarked, "I used to think that I would not allow anything like that to happen in my country when I used to hear about the global digital divide." In and of itself, digital public infrastructure is a crucial necessity.In India, women are more receptive to embracing new technologies.I have initiated the 'Namo Drone Didi' initiative.This is happening with great success. When I talk to them these days, they get quite excited. They claim that although they are pilots and can fly drones, they have no idea how to ride a bicycle. The way of thinking has evolved.

'AI is important',  PM Modi says

PM Modi also briefed Bill Gates on the use of AI at the G20 Summit in 2023. He went on to say that during the Kashi Tamil Sangamam event, artificial intelligence was employed to translate his words from Hindi into Tamil.

PM Modi claims that historically, during the first and second industrial revolutions, India as a colony lagged behind. The digital element is at the core of the fourth industrial revolution that we are currently witnessing. India will undoubtedly gain a great deal from this. The use of artificial intelligence is vital. Sometimes I make jokes about how in our country we name our mother 'Aai'. As a result of the level to which children have evolved, I assert that a newborn also says "Aai."
