Convergence among multiple technological and scientific disciplines, coupled with making sustainable systems would define the “knowledge society” of the 21st century, the former President, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, said here on Sunday.
He was addressing students of the Indian Institute of Technology (Patna) during its first convocation programme.
Narrating his visit to laboratories in Harvard University and the inventions in biosciences there, Mr. Kalam said, “I saw how two different sciences are shaping each other without any iron curtain between the technologists. This reciprocating contribution of sciences to one another is going to shape our future and industry needs to be ready for it.”
