Improving People's Quality of Life? AI-Powered Solutions Say YES


Although artificial intelligence (AI) technology is just a few decades old, it has already given rise to several applications that significantly impact our daily lives. Its main goal is to create intelligent machines by artificially mimicking and modifying human intelligence. While some experts contend that AI is capable of thinking and behaving logically, others disagree with this assertion when it comes to AI's capacity to act and think like humans. The foundations of artificial intelligence are found in subjects that have been studied for more than 60 years, including science, mathematics, philosophy, psychology, linguistics, and computer science. AI is a necessity across all industries and makes work easier. In order to better India, our government is developing artificial intelligence and AI-powered solutions.

Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Union Minister of State for Electronics & Information Technology and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, says, “The government is committed to creating artificial intelligence and AI-powered solutions that will benefit India and improve the lives of its citizens. AI would be a vital facilitator of India's digital economy as well as make governance smarter and more data-driven.”

Declaring that the general goal of the nation's artificial intelligence effort is to maintain India's position as one of the top countries in the field, according to Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar, to develop cutting-edge applications and scalable solutions for issues in a variety of industries, including agriculture, health, and sustainable cities, the government is collaborating with academia, startups, and industry players. This is helping to catalyze an effective AI ecosystem.

IndiaAI would considerably increase the AI Compute and GPU infrastructure in collaboration with tech firms to spur the development and creation of cutting-edge technologies while setting boundaries for their morally and safely acceptable application. Developing a responsible and ethical AI paradigm for India and the rest of the globe is one of the goals of the India AI program.

The Prime Minister has strongly emphasized making India a Global Talent Hub for AI as part of the IndiaAI initiative, in addition to creating technology. The implementation of skill-building initiatives to re-skill and up-skill professionals to be proficient with emerging technologies as well as to provide Young Indians with industry-ready and future-ready capabilities was made by Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar.

Benefits of AI in Government
Machine learning, deep learning, computer vision, speech recognition, and robotics are at the core of AI in government services. These methods produce actual, observable benefits when used. In order to help analysts identify useful insights, natural language processing automatically extracts pertinent data from intelligence sources and establishes links. Predictions of failure rates ensure that military equipment is well-maintained and prepared for deployment when required. Cyber anomaly detection can completely alter government system cybersecurity tactics. Although there are countless options, things are still just getting started.

Automate Routine Tasks
Large amounts of data, especially the enormous sets gathered by the military, aerospace, and other government sectors, cannot be processed manually by a human workforce. However, AI efficiently and accurately completes time-consuming and challenging jobs. Particularly when it comes to jobs that are precisely defined, entail vast volumes of data, and demand a lot of repetition, machine learning, and deep learning shine.

AI algorithms, for instance, make it possible to predict 3D protein structures more quickly and affordably from amino acid sequences. Researchers may use this information to develop treatments for diseases and a better understanding of how they work

AI simplifies processes and increases employee productivity by automating straightforward, well-defined tasks. Employees can then devote more time to making decisions that need their input. For instance, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) utilizes Emma, a virtual assistant created by a computer, to respond to inquiries and point visitors to the appropriate pages on the website. However, a person can better guide someone on following steps and clarify USCIS decisions.

Perform Mission-Critical Tasks
AI can support essential capacities in governmental organizations like the Department of Defence (DoD) of the United States. These include enhancing situational awareness and decision-making, enhancing the safety of machinery in hazardous settings, such as ships, planes, & automobiles, forecasting when crucial parts will break down, automating diagnosis, and scheduling maintenance. Additionally, AI supports DoD objectives by enhancing the navigational, topographical, and aeronautical charting that is necessary for safe and accurate navigation as well as improved surveillance.

Advanced Research and Development
AI, high-performance computing (HPC), and analytics enable research in various fields, including engineering, seismology, astrophysics, medicine, and genomics. Government-funded research is especially well-positioned to gain from academic and industrial AI advances. AI algorithms, for instance, make it possible to predict 3D protein structures more quickly and affordably from amino acid sequences. Researchers may use this information to develop treatments for diseases and a better understanding of how they work.

Case Studies of Usage of AI in the Public Sector
Intel and our ecosystem are assisting in shortening the time between pilot and impact with production-ready solutions for both the private and public sectors, from data strategy to enterprise-scale deployment. The examples of AI in government that are given below demonstrate how the public sector can significantly benefit from these products.

The District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority provides dependable wastewater removal for more than 700,000 residents. But because some of the city's infrastructure is over 200 years old, the 1,800 miles of sewer line need regular repair and inspection. Intel AI technology for video analysis aid in cost reduction and maintenance efficiency.

The FBI reports about 500,000 missing children each year. The National Centre for Missing & Exploited Children, a nonprofit organization, acts as a clearinghouse for vital data that will aid in locating the kids. The processing of tips regarding questionable internet activity and the speedy delivery of the information to the appropriate law enforcement agency can be assisted by advanced analytics and AI. Intel participates in DARPA challenges and DARPA artificial intelligence programs to enhance AI research. In the case of Intelligent Spine Technology, for instance, Intel and Brown University are working together.
