On Saturday, India's President Ram Nath Kovind said that experts believe that Sanskrit, as a language is most appropriate for writing algorithms besides use in machine learning and artificial intelligence.

During the 17th convocation of the Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri Rashtriya Sanskrit Vidyapeetha in New Delhi, the president made the remarks during his address saying,

“The tradition of Sanskrit language, literature and science has been the most effective chapter in the glorious journey of our intellectual growth. It is said that India’s soul is reflected in Sanskrit language, which is the mother of several languages,” he said.

Kovind also expressed that Sanskirt is not only limited to to spiritualism, philosophy, devotion, ritualism or literature, “It is also the language of knowledge and science. Important works of scientists and mathematicians such as Aryabhatt, Varaah Mihir, Bhaskar, Charak and Sushrut were created in Sanskrit.”
