New Delhi, June 05, 2018: Artificial Intelligence (AI) should be leveraged to provide quality solutions at scale across education, health, agriculture, infrastructure and mobility in smart cities, said Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant.

A paper titled ‘National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence’, said, “AI for All will aim at enhancing and empowering human capabilities to address the challenges of access, affordability, shortage and inconsistency of skilled expertise.”

AI refers to the ability of machines to perform cognitive tasks like thinking, perceiving, learning, problem solving and decision making.
In the paper, Niti Aayog has decided to focus on five sectors that includes healthcare, agriculture, education, infrastructure and transportation that can benefit from adoption of AI in solving societal needs according to timesofindia.indiatimes.com

Aiming to truly reap benefits of using AI in all and across sectors, the paper has identified barriers that need to be addressed to achieve success in the use of AI. The barriers include lack of expertise in research and application of AI, absence of enabling data ecosystem, high resource cost and low awareness, privacy and security issues and absence of collaborative approach to adoption and application of AI.
