“Our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi came to Israel for a first of its kind state visit, marking remarkable upswing in bilateral relations between the start up nation and economic powerhouse that India is today. I had the fortunate opportunity to be part of a student delegation to interact with our P.M. He had an unequivocal message for us. He asked us to device ways to adopt what we learn abroad to the scale and needs of our society. He said, “If you know how to adapt scientific expertise to the needs of the nation, then forever you will be in demand”. MOUs signed in the previous days included a tie-up between Telerad Tech, an affiliate of Bengaluru based company Teleradiology Solutions and Zebra Medical Vision, an Israel based firm working on artificial intelligence in high quality radiology reporting. His short interaction left a lasting impression, as he explained what his vision was when it came to collaboration with Israel on AI, nanotech, biotech, defense-tech, agritech and water management. In short, it was reassuring to know that our leader had done his homework!”
