Mumbai: International conference at Russell Square International College created a huge awakening in people from different sectors about digitization, how it has impacted the society and lives of all in every sector today. The age today is called the digital age & the society itself has been a witness of the changing trends. From the black and white tv channel where there were only limited tv shows till today where we have more than 100 channels each with different varieties of tv shows that are broadcasted throughout day. With so many options available today, one can keep surfing channels and this explains the multiple offerings in the media sector alone. Similarly other sector like Health Care, Science, IT, have also been touched by the digital way by some or the other form, thus facilitating producers and making life easier.
