China has been heavily investing in American AI start-ups, alarming the US government enough for it to seriously consider strengthening its existing strategic foreign investment regulatory mechanism – the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS). The present trajectory of AI advancement indicates that future economies and national security will be defined by it, making it among a handful of technologies that will shape global politics. The mapping of India's existing AI capabilities with a comprehensive survey of every AI focused establishment in the country would be a good place to start. The development of such a comprehensive vision will help the Indian government optimise the allocation of its considerable research capabilities towards the development of specific AI capabilities that would most benefit the country.
The report titled Artificial Intelligence and Robotics–2017 believes that national initiatives like Make in India, Skill India and Digital India could immensely benefit from AI technologies. AI, for instance, can be applied to Prime Minister Narendra Modi's initiatives such as the Digital India initiative, Skill India and Make in India; in large-scale public endeavours ranging from crop insurance schemes, tax fraud detection, and detecting subsidy leakage, and to helping hone the country's defence strategy. For example, cloud computing infrastructure, which is capable of storing large amounts of data and facilitating the huge amount of computing power essential for AI applications, is largely located on servers abroad. To encourage the same level of innovation in AI research efforts in India, initiatives to hold events and build user communities in the field of AI will go a long way, the report notes.

He said: "Post demonetization, the growth of mobile wallets has surpassed the growth of net banking and other digital payment offerings from banks in India. To figure out how are some of the government initiatives working, as they show where the opportunities will be in the future (more people online, more ecommerce and more digital spend), The Drum spoke to K Yatish Rajawat who is a well known digital strategist and policy analyst based in Delhi. For instance, it has made an open stack (UPI) that allows banks to create applications for mobile phones for digital transactions. We spoke to Arvind Gupta, founder member of AI startup Botworx.ai India is moving from a data poor country to a data rich country and AI will play a true role in delivering services self services, bringing about a policy driven state where only exceptions will need to be handled by government staff."
In this month's set of hand-picked datasets of the week, you can familiarize yourself with techniques for fraud detection using a simulated mobile transaction dataset, learn how researchers use data in the deep space hunt for exoplanets, and more. What I have learned is that with the help of simulation to generate synthetic datasets we can study a specific fraud phenomenon and more important measure the impact of different controls that we can implement before implementing them. So I decided to download the data for all the seasons of IPL (total 9), convert to csv format and started looking at the key insights.

Their passions range from ending illegal logging, diagnosing malaria in rural Uganda, translating Japanese manga, reducing farmer suicides in India via better loans, making Nigerian fashion recommendations, monitoring patients with Parkinson's disease, and more. Our group of selected fellows for Deep Learning Part 2 includes people from Nigeria, Ivory Coast, South Africa, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Singapore, Israel, Canada, Spain, Germany, France, Poland, Russia, and Turkey. After being selected as our first international fellow, and completing part 1 of our course, language researcher Samar Haider of Pakistan collected the largest dataset ever of his native language of Urdu. Her goal is to rate the legitimacy of online content via a deep learning model by integrating sentiment analysis of the comments, legitimacy of news source, and the content itself, trained on labeled articles with a "predetermined" score.
These are some of the questions the Indian government was asked via a Right to Information (RTI) request. Mumbai resident, Ajay Kumar, filed the RTI application asking the Indian government if it has plans in place for protecting the citizens of the nation when brain-dead walkers begin walking the streets. So much so, that Kiren Rijiju, the Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, took the opportunity to remind people that these questions "waste the precious time of office staff." This kind of RTIs will waste the precious time of the office staffs.
The government has approved an advisory which will ask matrimonial websites to authenticate its users through legally verifiable identity and address proofs, and keep their IP address records. The new rules will require these matrimonial websites to "confirm the user's intent to enter in to matrimonial alliance" and that "the user information is correct". The idea for regulating matrimonial websites was proposed last year, amidst complaints of cyber stalking, fake profiles and cheating. Like online dating platforms, these websites use data like age, location and profession to match users, but include traditional factors like caste and religion, which are vital to arranged marriages in India.
