Artificial Intelligence (AI) should be leveraged to develop quality solutions at large scale in the sectors like education, health, agriculture, infrastructure and mobility in smart cities, said Niti Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant.
According to a paper titled National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence, “AI for All will aim at enhancing and empowering human capabilities to address the challenges of access, affordability, shortage and inconsistency of skilled expertise.”
Aiming to put AI to use for all and across sectors, the Aayog has identified barriers that need to be addressed to achieve success in the use of AI. These 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.
The Aayog has also proposed to establish Centre of Research Excellence (CORE) recognising the importance of research and its commercial adoption in success of AI. The centre will focus on developing better understanding of existing core research.
Besides, it has proposed setting up of International Centres of Transformational AI with a mandate to develop and deploy application-based research in collaboration with private players.
