Collaboration Holds the Key to AI's Future
It's an aesthetic sight that the government is commanding the Artificial Intelligence (AI) adoption in the country. Yes, we are yet to catch up with the global pace, but then again, we have always been miles behind the global technology adoption rates. It’s the gap that is on a decline course, and the credit goes to the private and public sectors alike, alongside the employee communities that are finally convinced that AI is not here to take their jobs away, but to make them easier.
Recently, while inaugurating the 'Responsible AI for Social Empowerment (RAISE) 2020' Summit, PM Narendra Modi had shared his AI vision for the country and highlighted that India's national program on AI will be dedicated towards solving societal problems. He also added that the government’s AI approach will be powered by the core principles of teamwork, trust, collaboration, responsibility and inclusivity. The government, however, is walking the talk by bolstering its computing capabilities. For instance, Param Siddhi, India’s high performance computing-artificial intelligence (HPC-AI) supercomputer, had recently achieved global ranking of 63 in TOP500’s most powerful non-distributed computer systems in the world.
However, the government alone can’t carve a niche for India in the global AI map. As PM rightly echoed, a collaborative approach with the private sector is the key to the future of AI in India. Of late, Intel India had set an example towards this by joining forces with the government of Telangana, International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H) and Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) to launch INAI (INtel AI), an applied AI research center in Hyderabad. It goes without saying that to realize the AI vision, contributions from across the technology realm play a pivotal role. In this issue of ‘10 Most Recommended Artificial Intelligence Solutions Providers – 2020’, we are delighted to feature a few of the technology companies that significantly flex their innovative muscles to set benchmarks of AI adoption in the country.
