While the buzz around the Artificial Intelligence has gained so much ground in 2018, some of the tech giants now have decided to utilize the Machine Learning based algorithms not just to help the enterprise drive growth but also improve the healthcare across the globe and India became an early adapter for the same.
Most of the year went into the debate on democratizing or creating with an ethical AI. Moreover, real work too off on developing AI-based predictive models which is also capable of performing human tasks such as visual perception, brain-computer network, speech recognition and translation between languages.
In May, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella kicked off with the “AI for Accessibility” – a $25 Million, a five-year programme for the developers across the globe including India.
The programme has also put the AI tools in the hands of developers to accelerate the development of accessible and intelligent AI solutions for the near people with the proper disabilities.
Designed for the low-vision community, one such Microsoft app called “Seeing AI” is harnessing the power of AI to describe people, text, and objects. It can tell visually-impaired persons what is around them.
Amazon cloud platform Amazon Web Services has a Machine Learning Service which is known by the name as SageMaker which is helping developers to create the AI models for the healthcare. GE Healthcare is training computer vision models with the Amazon SageMaker that are then easily deployed in its MRI and X-Ray Devices.
Google is also working and using the AI models on the latest smartphones to help the blind. It is also working on an app called “Lookout” that uses the AI and image recognition to describe a scene with the help of a phone camera.
