Artificial intelligence had an eventful decade so far. With 2021 bringing more into play, technology has stronghold its place in every ecosystem. Especially, business organizations are enhancing their AI capabilities to streamline routine processes. Starting from attending to customer queries to powering autonomous vehicles, the influence of artificial intelligence is no joke. Besides, critical fields like healthcare, education, and space are adopting AI to sophisticate their existing features and bring in innovation.
To combat the recent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), academician and clinician are in search of new approaches to predict the COVID-19 outbreak dynamic trends that may slow down or stop the pandemic. But these epidemiological models based on mathematical assumptions may not predict the real pandemic situation. Recently the new machine learning approaches are being used to understand the dynamic trend of COVID-19 spread. In this paper, we designed the recurrent and convolutional neural network models: vanilla LSTM, stacked LSTM, ED-LSTM, Bi-LSTM, CNN, and hybrid CNN LSTM model to capture the complex trend of COVID-19 outbreak and perform the forecasting of COVID-19 daily confirmed cases of 7, 14, 21 days for India and its four most affected states (Maharashtra, Kerala, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu). The root mean square error (RMSE) and mean absolute percentage error (MAPE) evaluation metric are computed on the testing data to demonstrate the relative performance of these models. The results show that the stacked LSTM and hybrid CNN LSTM models perform best relative to other models.
Bengaluru, Nov 23: Artificial intelligence (AI), Machine learning, 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) would be the most important technologies in 2021, according to a new study by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The technical professional organisation on Monday released the results of a survey of Chief Information Officers (CIO) and Chief Technology Officers (CTO) in the US, the UK, China, India and Brazil. The survey was on the most important technologies for 2021, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the speed of their technology adoption and the industries expected to be most impacted by technology. On which would be the most important technologies, nearly one-third of the total respondents (32 per cent) said AI and ML followed by 5G (20 per cent) and IoT (14 per cent), according to an IEEE statement. Manufacturing (19 per cent), healthcare (18 per cent), financial services (15 per cent) and education (13 per cent) are the industries that most believe would be impacted by technology, according to the CIOs and CTOs surveyed.
A Bengaluru-based Artificial Intelligence (AI) firm has come up with "designs" of several chemical molecules that may help stop SARS-CoV2 virus, which causes Covid-19 infection from multiplying in an infected person. The firm, which used deep learning technology to identify structures of molecules that would inhibit a critical enzyme of the virus – called 3CLpro, is already in talks with an Indian pharma company, which could synthesise the molecules for testing, if the deal materialises. "We are not in a position to disclose the name of the pharma firm yet," said Vikram Jha, CEO of Pucho Technology Information Limited, the five-year-old firm. The firm, which has office in Bengaluru has been involved in developing an AI platform that offers search and information services to people who have otherwise access to the Internet in languages they are comfortable with when the lockdown happened. "We were ready with our platform but could not launch because of the lockdown. So, we decided to direct our energies towards the Covid-19 fight in a meaningful way using our expertise in AI. That was when two of our engineers specialising in deep learning suggested they could use neural network technology to look for generating potential lead compounds that can target the viral enzyme, 3CLpro," said Jha.
In recent times, we have seen an increasing number of instances of Artificial Intelligence (AI) donning the proverbial lab coat. In early 2019, thousands of people were screened every day in a hospital in Madurai by an AI system developed by Google that helps diagnose diabetic retinopathy, a condition that can lead to blindness. Startups like Niramai, based in Bengaluru are developing AI technology for early diagnosis of conditions like breast cancer and river blindness. The sudden, accelerated growth of Machine Learning not just in research but in all walks of life can bring to mind Black Mirror-esque visions of dystopia in which machines rule over humanity. But let us leave worrying about the consequences of the far future to science fiction and look at the immediate impact this technology has had in science.
INFOSYS-ICTS TURING LECTURES ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: SUCCESS, LIMITS, MYTHS AND THREATS SPEAKER: Marc Mézard (Director of Ecole normale supérieure - PSL University) DATE: 06 January 2020, 16:00 to 17:30 VENUE: Chandrasekhar Auditorium, ICTS-TIFR, Bengaluru Lecture 1 (Public Lecture): 6 January 2020, 4:00 PM Title: Artificial intelligence: success, limits, myths and threats Abstract: Artificial Intelligence is about to have a dramatic impact on many sectors of human activity. In the last ten years, thanks to the development of machine learning in "deep networks", we have experienced spectacular breakthroughs in diverse applications such as automatic interpretation of images, speech recognition, consumer profiling, or go and chess playing. Algorithms are now competing with the best professionals at analyzing skin cancer symptoms or detecting specific anomalies in radiology; and much more is to come. Worrisome perspectives are frequently raised, from massive job destruction to autonomous decision-making "warrior" robots. In this talk, we shall open the black box of deep networks and explore how they are programmed to learn from data by themselves.

Innovative start-ups can play a major role in the Indian healthcare system as the fourth industrial revolution is characterised by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital and biological domains, according to Kris Gopalakrishnan, Chairman, Axilor Ventures Private Ltd, Bengaluru. Delivering the 27th convocation address of Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE) in Manipal on Friday, Gopalakrishnan, said that there is tremendous disruption at the edge and at the intersection of emerging technology domains and economic activity. Stating that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming one of the most important technologies of all time, he said AI is now getting deeper into what were so far specialist human domains. Referring to the example of a real-time image-guided and robot-assisted surgery where imaging coupled with robotic assistance helps in assessing the area of procedure, monitoring the tools in 3D, and updating patho-physiology knowledge of the targeted tissue in real-time, Gopalakrishnan said this innovation is at the intersection of AI, robotics, biotechnology, telecommunications and clinical domains. Many more such innovations are emerging and defining the 21st Century, he said.
Today, there are definite use cases being deployed using Artificial intelligence (AI) and Machine learning (ML) with a much wider impact on the society in the areas of healthcare, education, travel, governance to name a few. To evangelise and showcase the immense potential of AI and Machine Learning, Amazon Web Services (AWS), the cloud technology and service provider has been continuously interacting with ecosystem through events, demonstration of use cases and most importantly the progress these technologies have made till now.
