Govt to virtually reproduce all monuments using 3D technology: Ashutosh Sharma

Govt to virtually reproduce all monuments using 3D technology: Ashutosh Sharma
Ashutosh Sharma, secretary, Department of Science and Technology

New Delhi, March 9 (UNI) The Union Science and Technology Ministry will reproduce all monuments, Buddhist Circuit using three dimensional (3D), cyber physical systems and other technologies with a view to virtually promote architectural heritage, a top official said at an ASSOCHAM event held in New Delhi today. “Without going for Bharat Darshan, you can sit in one place, in Delhi may be, and visit all the monuments, get all the information about them better than a guide can tell us because of the whole force of Wikipedia is behind you in that,” said Ashutosh Sharma, secretary, Department of Science and Technology while inaugurating an ASSOCHAM conference on ‘Artificial Intelligence (AI) & Robotics.’ He was talking about a project undertaken by Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) – Delhi about recreating architectural heritage. “They recreated the lost city of Hampi, 3D printed it and also embed all the information related to the monuments, sculptures, their whole history in this physical model.” He said that one could stop, pause and ask for more information about certain elements in-there and one would get that thereby terming it a weak example of cyber physical as it is not driven by AI and so it is not inventing new facts about the monument but everything which is already there. “We are going to reproduce using the same technology now all the monuments - starting from Ghats of Benares, if you take a boat-ride in the Ganges you see all the facades, all the history of the place, (will) reproduce Buddhist circuit,” said Prof. Sharma. He also said that there is an urgent need to create 20 million new jobs i.e. about two crore new jobs in India every year so it would be a challenge to use global technologies like AI as per the local needs. “One has to think very deeply about how to use the same technology to do the opposite of what the technology is being created for, so it would not help us to copy Japan, Germany because of the objectives being little bit different,” said Prof. Sharma. He said that all these countries are developing AI because they do not have people. “If you want to grow and remain competitive the way to go would be technology which can replace people but our problem is totally opposite.” More UNI ADP SHK 1600
