We will have to introduce new subjects to fit into the new Generation Alpha (Gen Alpha) which is based on technology. Students in schools will have to pursue their education through mobile phones and podcasts. We will have to teach genome technology, Artificial intelligence and robotics in schools and universities. New technology will bring a global revenue of one and a half trillion dollars in the future. Sri Lanka has no choice but to be a part of it,” he said.
