The world is witnessing rapid changes due to the increasing influx of technology and its intrusion into our daily lives in a multitude of ways. We have become dependent on the use of technology and at times, outsource many of our cognitive and operational functions to it for expeditious feedback. It has also changed the nature of work and will continue to do so with interesting prospects and opportunities presented by the emergence of Web 3.0, extended and augmented reality, and enabling technologies such as blockchain and AI.We, at KPITB, have an unwavering commitment and resolve to ensure that the best use of technology is adopted to bring about a positive and sustainable transformation in the public sector, uplift our private ICT sector and make interventions especially tailored to human development to leverage our youth bulge and develop the next generation of a competitive digital workforce leading to competitive technology enterprises, a more efficient digital governance framework, an increase in ICT exports, and wealth creation in the Province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Pakistan.
