MELAKA, Sept 14 (Bernama) -- The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) will focus on the implementation of myMaker programme to produce more inventors among the younger generation in the country.

Its technology and community division head Aisharuddin Nuruddin said the technology-based myMaker programme aimed to inspire the youth as well as giving them exposure and awareness on the importance of the Internet of things (IoT) in the future.

He said the focus of the programme was also in line with the country’s preparation towards the Industrial Revolution 4.0 which put IoT as the basis of all electronic devices.

“This myMaker initiative focuses on schoolchildren and youth as well as adults to be more creative and able to produce inventions that could be marketed or commercialised.

“MCMC has a laboratory in Cyberjaya opens to the public as a learning platform for basic innovation training to create a product,” he told reporters after the launch of the Disruptive Technology Transformation - 4th Industrial Revolution: Opportunities and Challenges seminar here Thursday.

The one-day seminar was organised by MCMC in collaboration with Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka and officiated by State Communication, Multimedia, Youth Development and Sports Council Committee chairman Kerk Chee Yee.
