CHENNAI: Getting down to the brass tacks, the Central task force on artificial intelligence programme has invited suggestions from experts, industry and public on using AI as an engine for economic growth.
IIT-Madras professor V Kamakoti, Reconfigurable Intelligent Systems Engineering (RISE) Laboratory, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, will head this task force constituted in August last year to explore possibilities to leverage AI for development across various fields.
“Understanding AI is not limited to understanding its underlying technology, but its deployment and its impact. To this effect, the opinion of end-users, the public and the industry, will be of great value to the task force,” Kamakoti said.
The IIT has launched a website (http://aitf.org.in) where suggestions and opinions may be recorded for consideration by the task force.
The mission includes leveraging artificial intelligence for the economic benefit; creation of a policy and a legal framework to accelerate deployment of AI technologies.
The domains of focus will include manufacturing, fintech, healthcare, agriculture/food processing, education and retail/customer engagement to human and robot interaction/intelligent automation, UIDAI/big data, environment, and national security, Kamakoti added.
