The Institution of Engineers Faridabad Local Centre organised World Telecommunication & Information Society Day in association with & at Lingaya’s Vidyapeeth on 17th May 2018.
Inaugurating the conference, Er. J P Malhotra Past Chairman IEI & President DLF Industries Association congratulated the IEI & Lingayas for the joint organisation. Elaborating on the theme “Enabling Positive use of Artificial Intelligent for all, Er. J P Malhotra said that Artificial Intelligence is a set of associated technologies and techniques that can be used to complement traditional approaches & human intelligence. Artificial Intelligence can help analyze enormous volumes of data, which in turn can improve predictions, prevent crimes and help government’s better serve people. In order to reap the benefits of AI, vast amounts of data are needed, which are only available through mass digitization – an area where developing countries lag far behind. There can be no mass digitization without universal and affordable access to broadband.
Mr. J P Malhotra was categorical in stating that AI does not mean loss of jobs for MSMEs. In fact Artificial Intelligence is as good as Autonotation where the equipment is able to sense the malfunction of the machine & stop it to provide defectives. Any development leads to disruption in any walk of life but the advantage & benefits of AI are Numerous. Citing the case study by Audi, 90% of car accidents are caused by human error. AI & autonomous driving would reduce accidents & save life. AI can help people with special needs as visually impaired & hearing impairment.
AI can help in monitoring hygiene in hospital, using drones for inspecting power lines, predictive modelling of disease outbreak etc .
Dr. D N Rao Vice- chancellor of Lingaya’s Vidyapeeth, in his message conveyed that Today the scenario is characterised by powerful forces of change- far reaching and continuing development in Artificial Intelligence.
