Industrie 4.0 has become increasingly global and cross-industry, driving digital transformation across industries, businesses, and governments. SRM University-AP observes National Engineers’ day with an inspiring talk by Mr Dasari Ramakrishna, Managing Director, Efftronics Systems Pvt. Ltd., on September 15, 2021, at 06.45 pm.
The heartbeat of the Fourth Industrial Revolution is algorithms. While algorithms are not new, the transition of businesses to be algorithmic is game-changing. Mathematicians describe an algorithm as an encapsulated set of rules that act on data to determine an outcome. In today’s digitalized world, companies use algorithms on a daily basis to influence and support decisions (fact-based decision making). In system development, algorithms building is the most challenging and major activity. Often engineers are expected to build completely new algorithms which are not available in the market (internet). One should adopt commonly available algorithms when required. But what is more important is to use various algorithmic concepts/principles together in combination to build a new algorithm. Like any development, algorithms building also follows the cycle of defining, analysing, designing, implementing, and testing iteratively in a systematic way. If one had to build algorithmic thinking, they need to practice with different scenarios, reflect upon the results and experiment continuously.
Every year on September 15, India commemorates Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya’s accomplishments by observing National Engineers Day. Visvesvaraya, the Bharat Ratna awardee, was born in the Karnataka village of Muddenahalli on September 15, 1861. As a pioneer in engineering, he made numerous contributions to the infrastructural backbone of the country.
