Chennai Chess Olympiad and AI

#artificialintelligence

In 2021, Nikhil Kamath, founder of Zerodha, defeated five-time world champion Vishwanathan Anand in chess with the help of computers (he confessed later on) at a celebrity fundraiser. The controversy sparked discussions around the use of AI in the game of chess. As India is all set to host the 44th edition of the Chess Olympiad in Mahabalipuram starting on July 28, let's look at how AI has impacted the game of chess. The earliest mention of technology in chess can be traced back to the 18th century when Austrian empress Maria Theresa commissioned a chess-playing machine. Many players competed against the'Mechanical Turk', thinking it was an automated machine.

Tamil Nadu Embraces Artificial Intelligence To Prevent Bird-Flu

#artificialintelligence

It's deja-vu all over again for India as avian flu spreads across the country like it did in 2007-08. Several people who eat chicken were infected by bird flu, which is also known as avian influenza.States like Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh have issued a 15-day ban on the sale of chicken and eggs, and Kerala has declared the bird flu epidemic a state catastrophe, making it increasingly difficult for state governments to keep the disease from spreading.In Kottayam's neendoor panchayat, it has been established that over 1650 ducks in a farm area perished of this sickness, boosting the disease's spread. State health official Radakrishnan claims that the state is both responding to and proactively preventing the spread of avian flu in Tamilnadu. Radakrishnan:To safeguard the survival of the poultry business, Tamilnadu has advocated cutting down on the import of chicken and eggs from Kerala, however it has taken numerous sane steps. One-third of India's poultry revenue (Rs 121 billion) is generated by the this sector.For the prevention of this industry, the Tamil Nadu government has used technology in an innovative way.Using an AI-driven approach, the state is able to detect dead or sick chickens in flocks and then utilize an alerting system to automatically segregate the animals.Several small-scale poultry farms have been used to test the efficacy of this effort since its inception in 2009.
