According to Modi, India is trying to give exposure to the machine learning, artificial intelligence to its students as early as sixth grade.

“This is our goal,” Modi said.

Proposing hackathon events with the participation of the interested ASEAN countries with the support of Nanyan Technical University, Government of Singapore and Government of India, Modi said such event can find solution for reduction of global warming and climate change.

Modi said he had suggested a joint hackathon during his previous visit to Singapore.

He said while last year’s hackathon held in Nanyan Technical University in Singapore and the focus was competition, this year each team has a member from both the countries thereby turning the event from competition to cooperation.

Modi also encouraged the visitors to visit the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site Mahabalipuram/Mammalapuram famous for its stone carvings and stone temples.

Making a special reference to the South Indian delicacy idli, dosa, vada and sambar generally taken for breakfast, Modi said Chennai is known for its hospitality and is warmth.
