“We are operating closely with the Government of Indiana and employing local individuals both experienced people as well as from universities,” he claimed in his statement her this week.
Nilekani claimed that Infosys was utilizing its infrastructure for future in capacity building. “This is just a fraction of many innovation centers that the company will be starting in the U.S. We are having a talk to most of the states,” he further claimed.
Nilekani witnessed a great potential in the business relations between India and the U.S. at the back of new start-ups coming up in the nation.
He was speaking at a 2-day trade conference “Unlocking US-India Trade Potential,” organized by Atlantic Council South Asia Center in association with the U.S. Consulate General.
Nilekani claimed that challenge before firms such as Infosys was to get individuals to be advanced on present development, present technology, and how they study the newest.
Nilekani, the original chairman for India at of the Unique Identification Authority that executed the Aadhaar project, claimed that Microsoft has incorporated its facility of Skype video interaction with Aadhaar to check the identity of users from India.
He claimed that many firms are utilizing SAP (Systems Applications and Products), which they mix with their devices to make better solutions. “To offer you a couple of instances, Microsoft has Skype, which is a thing related to video. And Skype has been incorporated into the Aadhaar system by Microsoft.”
“So if somebody needs to interview someone and you need to make certain that the applicant is a real person, then you can do an authentication of Aadhaar on Skype to check that he is the genuine applicant or not.
So this is an instance of how a U.S. firm has mixed their SAP with Aadhaar SAP for Skype and Window,” he claimed to the media while speaking of the technology at the event.
