Artificial Intelligence in Nepal -Need and Opportunity
Artificial intelligence has been pronounced from the long time ago. Various records and historical shreds of evidence show that the origin of the term Artificial Intelligence dated back to the around 400 BC. Since that time many great scholars had contributed to this particular field and still many are giving their ages to achieve the peak of Intelligence.
Starting from the absolute scratch AI has beaten most intelligence creature(Human) in many competitions organized by the researchers to analyze the performance of machine learning vs human brain. Many tech giants are using AI for image recognition, voice recognition and in other dynamic fields. Sci-Fi movies have been showing that we can land in the future where we will be surrounded by the smart machines willing to help us.
As the rest of world are adopting Artificial Intelligence and willing to implement in every field near future, Nepal is nowhere around it. Digitization of the world makes an impact in the every country on it. Almost 60% of Nepal population is in reach to the internet. Rest of world is dreaming about the self-driven cars powered by Tesla Motor. Nepal hasn't attempted to do anything in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Nepal can utilize Artificial Intelligence in the following fields:
Agriculture: Many people falsify the need of AI in agriculture but in my view in the developing countries like Nepal where most of the people are engaged in agriculture, AI can change the entire scenario of the financial condition of farmers. AI can be used to simulate the soil condition for the most suitable crop and time period to farm it. The historical trend of rainfall and utilization of transducers can simulate and predict the perfect time of rainfall. By the utilization of AI, we can predict the time period when agriculture product can get the best value in a market. AI can help farmers by predicting the correct disease to their crop and best remedies for it evaluate the similar trends from the database and historical condition. AI is insertable in any way we want to revolutionize agriculture system implementing smart scientific agriculture system.
Health Care: AI has great future ahead in the medical sector. Unlike mobile banking, there is the possibility of mobile health care. We can utilize telehealth care to call some number and providing details about our problem and uploading some photos if necessary then the machines does the work of the huge databases of diseases and remedy and they can prescribe you some medicine or necessary actions on the go. This seems more likely to happen in nearby future. Apart from this smartphone can be integrated to the nearby hospital to provide support ASAP by a touch on the screen of the smartphone. Machines can be utilized to simulate and evaluate the operating condition in the extreme cases and they can be used for complicated surgery if necessary.
Furthermore, they are the heart of the industry. They can be implemented more precisely to understand the demand of the consumer in the particular area and can be used to increase the rate of production. Machine learning and artificial intelligence can be utilized in the security and research sector. Infant, there is the never-ending application of AI in the near future.
