An extraordinary focal point is on the development of Smart Cities – one that utilizes IoT devices to manage traffic, utilities and healthcare etc.
These projects are certainly are a good sign of the government’s spotlight on Internet of Things. However, there are numerous obstructions that might prevent the organizations from making the highest use of it. Not having consistent internet connectivity, cost of IoT devices, bandwidth issues etc. are a few of the prevalent challenges to name some. In spite of consumer acceptance challenge in Internet of Things, the prospective is immense on the profit-making frontage. Businesses can be seen taking benefits from the IoT for facilitating industrial automation and for resourceful processes.

The recent advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) can be considered as a wake-up call to the policymakers in India. With the AI technology, every one of our Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s flagship programs is expected to be directly affected within the next few years. With China making speedy development in AI-based study and research, it is very important that India sees AI as a serious constituent of national security strategy. Encouraging AI-based improvement and establishing AI-ready infrastructure are therefore compulsory to set up India’s jobs and skills markets for an AI-based future. Artificial Intelligence is important in terms of securing its tactical interests.
India must take on a purposeful policy to force AI innovation, proliferation and adaptation in sectors further than consumer goods and information technology services in order to maximally benefit from this AI revolution. From Aadhaar to NATGRID, machine intelligence–powered podiums can become a deliberate instrument of supremacy in India across an extensive range of civic services. These platforms are not devoid of their challenges: a machine intelligence–powered move toward the governance which will require vigorous digital privacy laws and a code of ethic on the limitations to using AI.
