The Telangana government on Thursday declared 2020 as the year of artificial intelligence (AI) and inked nine memoranda of understanding (MoUs) with IT players and educational institutions to develop various use cases as well as conduct research on the application of AI and creation of talent pool in this area.
Intel, Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) and IIIT- Hyderabad jointly inked a pact with the government for setting up a research centre in applied AI in healthcare and mobility.
Speaking at the event, Nivruti Rai, country head, Intel India, said, “AI is going to make a $13 trillion addition to the world economy, if you think AI, there are five characteristics of data that are essential to drive its success – quality, quantity, depth, access and diversity and India has it all.” She said Intel will be working with IIIT-Hyderabad, PHFI and state government to leverage AI to broaden the access of quality healthcare to masses.
The state also inked a pact with Nvidia that will be setting up a high performance computing AI centre in Hyderabad. The government entered into a MoU with IIT-Kharagpur to set up an AI centre of excellence and research and development park in the city. Telangana will also be partnering with Adobe, IIT Hyderabad for capacity building in AI.
“As we all know, machine readable data is the core of any AI/ML algorithm. Realizing that availability of quality data would be a key differentiator, we had launched the open data policy and published data related to about 20 departments on the open data platform... The aim, going forward, is to democratise seamless availability of data by creating population scale curated public data sets, especially in the areas of mobility, healthcare, agriculture and e-governance, leading to better innovation, governance and successful business outcomes,” Telangana IT minister KT Rama Rao said, adding that Telangana would create India AI Data Trust that would be a resource centre of such data sets.
He also added the state would work with partners to make available a high-performance AI Computing (HPAIC) infrastructure for startups and research centers.
