Intel's Digital Skills for India

There won’t be any surprise if anyone thinks about technology development at the moment but it is an achievement from just someone’s effort from any part of the world who contributed their idea’s, energy and time on technology innovation and development where we are now in. 

Yes, it is also applies for Intel giant microprocessor and chipset manufacturer and leader. There were just few heads who tried to invent something new which is helpful for many across globe at present and in the near future. Intel heads are none other than Intel pioneer and founder for semi-conductor Robert Noyce, Gordon Moore and Andrew Grove.

First we will know the basic difference between Analog and Digital Electronics.

Analog: Translating info into electric pulses varying amp
Digital: Translating info into binary format (0 or 1) each varying two different amplitudes.

Integrated Electronic (Intel) and their heads have achieved milestones continuously for the past few decades and till date on various chipset products. Yes, microprocessor giant Intel has various achievement in the past and present beside its view on future development on every sector including eGovernance. It is hard to count their success, achievement and innovations besides.

However, they are big players in technology development, changes and innovation. Yes, inventor of the X86 series of microprocessors which can be found in many PCs are trying their best to do even higher level. As you know, Intel produces various electronic component such as chipset, microprocessor, integrated circuits, motherboard, network interface controllers, graphic chips, flash memory, embedded processors and so on related to computing. They too have very few competitors for its business but still on top for it.

They changed the track from Analog to Digital one. Their other successful beginnings were SRAM and DRAM memory etc. However, Intel created first commercial microprocessor in 1971 though it was not well known till Personal Computer development during 1990. Intel funded huge and were top most supplier for microprocessor in and around 1990 for growing computer industry. Their ‘Intel Inside’ along with ‘Pentium’ tag was well known for many at that time. Intel success started from P1, P2, P3, P4, Centrino, Celeron, Core Duo, Dual core, Core 2 Duo, i3, i5, i7. Intel Celeron to Intel Pentium then moved to Intel Core as success and best to offer worldwide.

Beside various technology developments such as higher configuration for advance computer matching latest software, Intel also focusing on Cloud computing and serving to Government organization in each country to bring eGovernance for future consideration. So far, Intel has helped on various sections’ development in many countries for eGovernance initiative, it has enriched the sectors like Railways, Airlines, Research, Aerospace, Defence, Passport, Citizen’s ID and so on to link directly the citizen and service facilities.

Besides their focusing on Big data and Cloud computing, Intel is closely working with Indian Government too on various projects like ‘Digital Skills for India’ program. Intel has already working on a digital skills training application that developed in five languages of India (viz. Hindi, Marathi, Kannada, Gujarati and Tamil). The Digital Skills for India app is going to be available in Android Play Store soon. This application module for digital literacy on healthcare, financial inclusion and cleanliness in those languages are going to be helpful to few million citizens. Digital education in India is need of the hour.

Other than this, Intel aim is to collect more and more data especially from health records, financial information and social media and store them in cloud environment including safety of the data.
