Celebrating National Technology Day, we at Youth Incorporated Magazine had the opportunity of attending the inauguration of ‘Machined to Think’, a science exhibition at Nehru Science Centre, Mumbai. The exhibition aimed at introducing technologies reputed to be the making of the ‘fourth industrial revolution.’ It focused mainly on the emerging growth of Artificial Intelligence and portrayed science in a way that made it alluring and fun.
