    PUTTAPARTHI: Emergence and development of new technologies can make human habitats disease-free, happy, more intelligent, increase longevity and human capabilities in the years to come, President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam said here on Wednesday.

    Addressing students of Sri Satya Sai Institute of Higher Learning on its 25th convocation in the newly constructed Sri Satya Sai Centre International Centre for Sports, he said convergence of bio-nano-info technologies could lead to the development of nano robots. When injected into patients, the nano robots would diagnose and deliver the treatment exclusively in the affected areas.

    The information and communication technologies had already converged into info communication technology and combined with biotechnology, it transformed into bio-informatics. Now, the nano technology was knocking at our doors and it would replace microelectronics in the future. This would have tremendous application potential in the areas of medicine, electronics and material science, the President told the gathering.

    He told the students that during his visit to Singapore, Philippines and Republic of Korea earlier this year, he had put forward the concept of World Knowledge Platform. The platform would take up missions in areas like energy, water, healthcare, food and others. He hailed the value-based education offered by Satya Sai institutions that combined spirituality and social responsibility. The President interacted with a few students minutes before the commencement of the convocation.
