Applications of AI


AI has been dominant in various fields.



 AI plays a crucial role in strategic games such as chess, poker, tic-tac-toe, etc., where the machine can think of a large number of possible positions based on heuristic knowledge.

 Hindi English


Natural Language Processing

 It is possible to interact with the computer that understands the natural language spoken by humans.

Hindi English


Expert Systems

There are some applications which integrate machine, software, and special information to impart reasoning and advising. They provide explanation and advice to the users

 Hindi English


Vision Systems

These systems understand, interpret, and comprehend visual input on the computer. For example, A spying aeroplane takes photographs, which are used to figure out spatial information or map of the areas.

 Hindi English


Speech Recognition

Some intelligent systems are capable of hearing and comprehending the language in terms of sentences and their meanings while a human talks to it. It can handle different accents, slang words, noise in the background, change in human’s voice due to cold, etc.

Hindi English


Handwriting Recognition

The handwriting recognition software reads the text written on paper by a pen or on-screen by a stylus. It can recognise the shapes of the letters and convert them into editable text.

 Hindi English



Intelligent Robots

 Robots can perform the tasks given by a human. They have sensors to detect physical data from the real world, such as light, heat, temperature, movement, sound, bump, and pressure. They have efficient processors, multiple sensors and huge memory, to exhibit intelligence. Also, they are capable of learning from their mistakes, and they can adapt to the new environment.

Types of AI

AI Types (Based on Capability)


Weak or Narrow AI

AI type-2: Based on the functionality


Basics of AI

Going deep into the subject as an academic discipline and explaining the various concept, terms and methods used  in  R&D  terminology. .

Few examples …..

An algorithm is a step by step method of solving a problem. It is commonly used for data processing, calculation and other related computer and mathematical operations.

An algorithm is also used to manipulate data in various ways, such as inserting a new data item, searching for a particular item or sorting an item.

Hindi English


Weak AI or Narrow AI:


General AI:

Narrow AI is a type of AI which is able to perform a dedicated task with intelligence. The most common and currently available AI is Narrow AI in the world of Artificial Intelligence.

Hindi English



General AI:

General AI is a type of intelligence which could perform any intellectual task with efficiency like a human.

The idea behind the general AI to make such a system which could be smarter and think like a human by its own.


 Hindi English


 Super AI:

Super AI is a level of Intelligence of Systems at which machines could surpass human intelligence, and can perform any task better than a human with cognitive properties. It is an outcome of general AI.

 Hindi English


Reactive Machines

Purely reactive machines are the most basic types of Artificial Intelligence.

Such AI systems do not store memories or past experiences for future actions.

 Hindi English


 Limited Memory

Limited memory machines can store past experiences or some data for a short period.

 Hindi English


 Theory of Mind

Theory of Mind,  AI should understand human emotions, people, beliefs, and be able to interact socially like humans.

 Hindi English



Self-awareness AI is the future of Artificial Intelligence. These machines will be super intelligent and will have their own consciousness, sentiments, and self-awareness.

These machines will be smarter than the human mind.

Hindi  English


Deep Learning /Machine Learning

Machine Learning and Deep Learning

Machine Learning, a term coined by Artur Samuel in 1959, meant “the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed.” Machine Learning involves the use of algorithms to parse data and learn from it, and deciding or prediction as a result. Instead of hand-coding software libraries with well-defined specific instructions for a particular task, the machine gets “trained” using large amounts of data and algorithms, and in turn, gains the capability to perform specific tasks.

AI and Literature


AI, Films, Novels and Stories.


 Artificial intelligence is a recurrent theme in science fiction, whether utopian, emphasising the potential benefits, or dystopian, emphasising the dangers.

The notion of machines with human-like intelligence dates back at least to Samuel Butler‘s 1872 novel Erewhon.

Reference to Indian Authors as well.

AI in Indian Scriptures


Yoga Vāsistha describes the application of Artificial Intelligence (A.I), human emotions, ego to Robots. Sambarasura creates dama, vyāla, kaTa to win on Adityas. Yoga Vāsistha (योग-वासिष्ठ) is a discourse of sage Vasistha to Prince Rama. Sage Valmiki is credited as its author. It has six parts, and in one of the part, application of Artificial Intelligence (A.I), human emotions etc. to Robots is described

AI’s potential for national strategies


The Challenges Facing India’s AI Development

AI success in the United States, China, South Korea that India should consider.

  With China making rapid progress in AI-based research, it is imperative that India view AI as a critical element of national security strategy. Spurring AI-based innovation and establishing AI-ready infrastructure are thus necessary to prepare India’s jobs and skills markets for an AI-based future and to secure its strategic interests.

AI (automation) Indian economy-

India, being the fastest growing economy with the second largest population in the world, has a significant stake in the AI revolution. Recognising AI’s potential to transform economies and the need for India to strategise its approach, Hon’ble Finance Minister, in his budget speech for 2018 – 2019, mandated NITI Aayog to establish the National Program on AI, to guide the research and development in new and emerging technologies.

AI And national security/cyber security

India must view machine intelligence as a critical element of its national security strategy. 

AI & Cyber Security:- The future application of AI in cybersecurity will ensure in curbing hackers. The incidence of cybercrime is an issue that has been escalating over the years. It costs enterprises in term of brand image as well as material cost. Credit card fraud very is one of the most prevalent cybercrimes. Despite there being detection techniques, they still prove to be ineffective in curbing hackers. AI can bring a remarkable change to this. Novel AI techniques like Recurrent Neural Networks can detect fraud very in initial stages itself. This fraud detection system will be able to scan thousands of transactions instantly and predict/ classify them into buckets. RNN can save a lot of time as it focuses on cases where there is a high probability of fraud.

 Hindi English

Smart Mobility and Transportation

Mobility and transportation form the backbone of the modern economy due to their linkages with other sectors and importance in both domestic and international trades. Today’s society demands a high degree of mobility of various kinds, to enable the efficient and safe transportation of both people and goods. As a major contributor to overall emissions, this sector must also be sensitive to ideas of environmental sustainability.

   Major issues to be addressed  by AI

Need for sustainable transportation

Congestion and road accidents

High number of traffic deaths:

Lack of public transportation infrastructure

Assisted vehicle technologies:

Efficiencies in the design of Greenfield infrastructure

Future Scope of Artificial Intelligence

The scope of AI in science is the largest. Recently ‘Eve’ was in the news for discovering that an ingredient found commonly in toothpaste, is capable of curing Malaria. Here the subject in appreciation ‘Eve’ is not a human scientist, rather a Robot created by a team of scientists at the Universities of Manchester, Aberystwyth, and Cambridge.

 Eve’s example hints at the possibility of AI playing a bigger role in science in future, not just merely for augmentation. AI will be able to create science, not merely do science as evidenced by the Robot Scientist, Eve. Automation using AI for drug discovery is a field that is rapidly growing, mainly because machines work faster than humans.

 Sophia, the AI Robot, is the quintessential example of this. The future of Artificial intelligence is hazy. But going by the bounds of progress AI has been making, it is clear AI will permeate every sphere of our life.

AI is also being applied in related areas such as synthetic biology for the manufacture and rapid design of microorganisms for industrial uses. Taking all this in stride, AI is sure to transform science as we know it.
