Open Challenges (#AIforALL)

We are ready to solve our day-to-day real-life challenges using Artificial Intelligence (AI)? AI refers to the intelligence of machines that perform cognitive tasks like thinking, knowledge acquisition, learning, planning, decision making and actions like a human being. It is an art of making machines to be intelligent so AI is computational intelligence.

NITI Aayog (GOI) has quantified the focus areas that are envisioned to benefit from AI in solving societal needs:

1. Healthcare - Accessibility and Affordability of Quality Healthcare

2. Agriculture - Transformation of Traditional Agriculture to Mechanized (AI-enabled) Agriculture for Increasing Farmers' Income & Productivity along with Waste Management

3. Education - Anywhere and Anytime Access of Quality Education

4. Smart Cities and Infrastructure - Efficient Operations to Control Urban Activities and Resource Optimization

5. Smart Mobility and Transportation - Intelligent Traffic Management for Speedy and Safer Transportation

Candidates are encouraged to work in these areas for the benefits of deploying AI at scale...[Continue reading]
