Indian scientific girl named Kid of the Year by Time Magazine

From the United States 15-year-old, Indian-American scientist/inventor Gitanjali Rao was elected the “Kid of the Year”. She expressed the hope that her election will inspire others to conceive of “solutions to world problems.”

The Guardian reported that the new technology invented by Gitanjali Rao covers a wide range of fields, from a device that can identify lead in drinking water to an app and Chrome browser The extended function of the device can use artificial intelligence (AI) to detect cyberbullying.

Time magazine (Time) held the “kid of the year” selection for the first time this year. The judging committee was formed by the late-night talk show host Trevor Noah (Trevor Noah) and a group of young people. 5,000 people from the United States were nominated Five finalists were selected from among them. Rao and the other four finalists will be commended in a special program on the 11th.

Hollywood actress-cum-renowned humanitarians Angelina Jolie (Angelina Jolie) for Time magazine interview Ola, she said in an interview: “I do not look like your typical scientist eyes I saw on TV The scientists in the world are all older and usually white men.”

She said: “My goal has changed drastically. It is no longer just to invent unique devices to solve the world’s problems, but to inspire others to do the same thing as me.”

“Because based on my personal experience, when you don’t see anyone like you, it’s actually quite uncomfortable. So I really want to send this message: if I can do it, you can do it, anyone can do it.”

Time Magazine began to select “man of the year honor” in 1927, and later changed to “person of the year.” This year is the first selection of children of the year. The edition of “Time For Kids” (Time For Kids) was co-issued with the children’s TV channel Nickelodeon.

The Swedish environmental protection girl Greta Thunberg was selected as Time Magazine’s Person of the Year last year when she was only 16 years old and was the youngest person of the year ever.
