The Internet College and The College of Startups, organised an interactive session with leading physicist Dr Nigel Lockyer, Director of Fermilab. The session was attended by scholars, delegates and students of Delhi University. A number of issues were discussed such as the discovery of the Higgs-Boson, preventing rail accidents through a portable tech invention, dramatic energy conservation through new technologies, accelerator spin-offs applied to cancer therapy and water conservation.
Prof. Dinesh Singh, former Vice Chancellor of Delhi University, said that the learning from such enterprises shall flow into offerings and activities of the Internet College and vice versa. “As part of the official program, startups will receive an access to world-class data and content sets and mentoring from experienced executives and from high-end institutions across the globe networking opportunities for investment and commercialisation”.
On technology developments at Fermilab, Dr Nigel Lockyer said, “Fermilab along with CERN is the world’s leading particle physics research centre. It has played a major role in the discovery of the Higgs-Boson leading to a Nobel Prize. A select list of technology-based applications emanating from Fermilab, including a very important one for IT programming includes a multi-software system that can shorten programming time significantly.”
