Apart from this, he also took questions on a diverse set of topics. On Google developing a deep partnership with India and India's manufacturing of the Pixel smartphones, he said, “It is a very good initiative. The component ecosystem is developing rapidly in India. Mobile manufacturing was negligible 9 years ago but the prime minister's vision has led to close to 44 billion dollars worth of manufacturing, while the export of mobile phones is at $11 billion”.

On the semiconductor ecosystem in India, Vaishnaw said, “Semiconductors are a very important part of India's digital strategy. Close to 50K design engineers in India are working on designing semiconductor chips”.

Rick Osterloh, the SVP of Devices and Services at Google, who also kickstarted the Made by Google event this year and announced the Pixel 8 series, was also a part of the fireside chat. He added to Vaishnaw's comments and said, “The heart of the Pixel smartphone is the Tensor chip. I believe computing is going to be transformed with AI and Tensor helps us bring it to Pixel phones. We have a significant engineering presence in Bengaluru to work on the Tensor chipset. Another way of helping Indian consumers and the economy with engineering and training”.

On AI, Osterloh said, “AI will make mobile computers more accessible and powerful. We aim to be at the forefront of the AI revolution with applications such as Google Bard, Google Workspace, and the Pixel devices”.
