India to Witness Tech Revolution Due to Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence is all set to change India's tech sector as Niti Ayog has given its approval for the same. Artificial Intelligence (AI) can now be employed in the fields of health care, education, agriculture, and rural development.

India can see rapid changes in the tech sector in the next 10 years due to Niti Ayog’s approval for artificial intelligence in health care, agriculture, education, and rural development. This will open new areas of employment for social scientists as well as technology experts.

This was the conclusion that was reached at the first session of the Idea Conclave at the GB Pant Social Science Institute on Thursday, 7th March 2019. The computer science experts who attended the event were Sudipta Roy, Punam Bedi, Vasundhara Bhatnagar. They were also industry representatives such as GS Darbari, and academicians such as Shahswat Biswas and Ashish Khare. The session was moderated by Prof US Tiwary from IIIT, Allahabad. Punam Bedi emphasized the importance of data in artificial intelligence through deep learning and machine learning.

The industry will require data managers to maintain clean data repositories pertaining to rural India which are absent at the moment, Bedi highlighted. Data is the most important aspect of data analytics but there are things that can go wrong with the data such as the arrangement, construction, spelling, formatting, extra spaces, duplication etc.
