Artificial intelligence is that form of technology in which a machine or system copies human intelligence to vigilantly perform various tasks, their skills are more enhanced by the information they collect. Mobile phones have programs based on artificial intelligence for instance Android mobile uses Google assistant and Apple uses Siri. One other simple example we often see chat bots on different websites which are quicker and efficient in solving customer queries, credit goes to artificial intelligence.
All around the globe technology and science have reached new heights but a developing country like Pakistan is far behind than countries that have made massive technological developments like UK, Japan, USA, Russia so on and so forth. We still have not entered into the revolution which is known as 4th industrial revolution of technology, it will take a decade or so if not more.
Why is AI so essential for technology?
It plays a crucial role in the 4th era of technology, Pakistan should introduce artificial intelligence to our youth and encourage them to study it by providing platforms which will not only educate students about artificial intelligence but would also giveaway opportunities so that our students can match the level of international students.
How can you learn artificial intelligence in Pakistan?
The good news is there are several universities and institutes which are offering artificial intelligence courses in their bachelor degree; digital labs are also available so that students can perform different tasks and enhance their skills.
Does Artificial intelligence have any future in Pakistan?
Industries that are private are eventually adapting artificial intelligence and encouraging machine work to reduce man power and increase production. The hiring would be definitely for people who have expertise in artificial intelligence and engineers which can run and control the system. Hopefully huge number of vacancies for students will open soon and will be surely inducted accordingly.
Not only industrial usage, artificial intelligence can help in other sectors too it can be significant for avionics, military, cyber security and drones. It is an excellent solution for warfare.
