AI Skilling in India: New study confirms AI Set to be a major part of India's growth story with increasing demands for skills

#artificialintelligence

Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], July 1 (ANI/NewsVoir): In June 2020, the Institution of Engineering and Technology, India and the UK India Tech Partnership team from the British High Commission carried out an independent study on AI skilling in India as a part of their joint initiative to accelerate AI skilling and adoption in India. The study garnered close to 140 respondents representative of students, start-ups, academia, incubators, and large corporations. The study shed particular light on the need for a standardised AI curriculum for undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Also, students trying to equip themselves with in-demand skills indicated that they were discouraged by not knowing where to start, finding the right expert, and fear of coding being too tough. This next generation of entrepreneurs also wanted support with application-led concepts like Speech recognition, Computer vision and Robotics, and Natural Language processing.

IBM introduces advanced AI tools to make sense of complex language

#artificialintelligence

Bengaluru: With an increased demand for advanced artificial intelligence (AI) across businesses, IBM has rolled out advanced AI based solutions under Watson that can read and analyse complex English language including meaning of idioms. The technology major said this advanced version of natural language processing (NLP) for its Project Debater would have the capability to understand challenging aspects of conversational English helping organisations to get greater clarity and more insights from their data. IBM said these new technologies represent the first commercialization of key NLP capabilities to come from IBM Research's Project Debater. Subram Natrajan, IBM India CTO, said today NLP has many limitations and this is going to push boundaries. For instance, he said, the Advanced Sentiment Analysis solution, to be integrated into Watson, is going to have a huge impact in terms of understanding the sentiment behind a language.


Google backs six artificial intelligence-based research projects – Details

#artificialintelligence

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is opening up the next phase of technological advances. Riding the AI wave, Google has started six AI-based research projects in India. These projects would focus on addressing social, humanitarian and environmental challenges in sectors such as healthcare, education, disaster prevention and conversation. Google Research India, based in Bengaluru, will provide funding and computational resources besides supporting the efforts with expertise in computer vision, natural language processing, and other deep learning techniques, says Manish Gupta, director of Google Research Team in India. The research team will focus on two pillars: First, advancing fundamental computer science and AI research by building a strong team and partnering with the research community across the country and secondly, applying this research to tackle big problems in fields such as healthcare, agriculture and education while also using it to make apps and services more helpful.


The hits and misses of using Artificial intelligence for recruitment

#artificialintelligence

Over the years that I have spent with startups, I've come across both genuine and fake AI products. I'll start with the ones that truly solved problems using AI. A few years ago, one of the co-founders of Liv.ai, a Bengaluru-based AI startup, met me and demonstrated their product that used natural language processing to convert speech to text in multiple Indian languages. I had always known that text to speech was easy, but converting speech to text in multiple languages was a hard problem to solve. I was a bit sceptical at first, but when I saw the product, I was quite blown away.


AI in demand but 2,500 jobs remained vacant in 2019, says report

#artificialintelligence

Bengaluru: The rising demand for artificial intelligence (AI), the technology that mimics the human brain, is a no brainer. However, although the number of AI professionals in India has doubled, 2,500 related positions remain vacant indicating that the number of jobs getting created in AI has outpaced the talent available in the sector, according to a study by Great Learning, India's leading ed-tech company. The number of AI professionals in the country has almost doubled from 40,000 in 2018 to 72,000 by end of 2019 and more than 3,000 companies claim to work on AI projects of some or the other kind in 2019, a growth of 200% over 2018, the report stated. Part of the job vacancy could be due to employers seeking for a combination of skills. "While tech-based skillsets such as data analytics, machine learning, and AI continued to be in great demand throughout 2019, recruiters also sought softer skillsets such as emotional intelligence, critical thinking and leadership skills. The growing convergence between technology and business processes continued to redefine job roles," said Zairus Master, CEO, Shine.com.


Samsung India to hire over 1,200 engineers from top institutions like IITs and BITS Pilani this year

#artificialintelligence

In line with its commitment to hire 2,500 engineers for Research and Development in India, Samsung India on Wednesday said it is set to hire more than 1,200 engineers from top institutions like IITs and BITS Pilani this year to create a robust Research and Development pool for generating innovative'Make in India' products for both the domestic and global markets. The South Korean giant hired 1,000 engineers last year from top engineering colleges including IITs, NITs and IIIT, giving a thrust to New-Age domains like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), Machine Learning (ML), biometrics, Natural Language Processing (NLP), Augmented Reality (AR) and networks including 5G. Samsung India has three Research and Development in the country, in Bengaluru, Noida and Delhi. "In December 2017, we spoke about our commitment to hire 2,500 engineers in India by 2020. We hired 1,000 engineers in 2018 and are set to take 1,200 plus engineers on board in 2019. Samsung India is well on track to meet the commitment it made," Sameer Wadhawan, Head, Human Resources (HR), Samsung India, told IANS.


In rural Karnataka -- AI answers complaints in Kannada

#artificialintelligence

Utilities supplying electricity in urban areas tend to get inundated by customer complaints of power outage, low voltage and other issues during summers and monsoon. Telephone helplines manned by humans tend to be inaccessible as small groups of workers who man the helplines cannot respond to the flood of calls. The state-run Bengaluru Electricity Supply Company (Bescom), which supplies power to eight districts in Karnataka, has now turned to an artificial intelligence-powered system to service the over 9,000 complaints it receives on its helpline systems each day. Bescom is tying up with the Medical Intelligence and Language Engineering (or MILE) Lab at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) to create an AI-based complaint response system than can cater to as many as 500 calls at a time -- much higher than the 60 under the system that the utility employs at present. "What we will have is a technology where when someone calls in the machine will take over and the machine will recognise whatever the speaker says whether it is in Kannada or English. It will understand the complaint -- whether it is with regard to a bill or power outage or concession for solar energy -- and find an answer from the server. It will then synthesise the answer again to text and convert to speech," said A G Ramakrishnan, the head of IISc's MILE.
