Further, Ram Madhav said that during the COVID-19 pandemic, the new world order is being dominated by many technologies in a big way. Digital technology was the one among them, which had a lot of potential for application in many sectors such as education, defence, aerospace, healthcare, energy, security, agriculture and governance, among others. In the future, Artificial Intelligence-based technologies will address societal problems as well as climate change issues. The rights of robots may promote a new expansion of the interrelated responsibilities of humans and machines.
"The individuals, governments and nations must be tuned in line with technological developments in the new world order.
