Not too long ago, the Pakistani authorities has allotted a price range of Rs 1.1 billion for the interval of three years to start out a challenge on Synthetic Intelligence. The challenge will probably be carried out underneath the supervision of Higher Education Commission (HEC). The HEC shortlisted six public sector universities to arrange 9 labs to hold out analysis within the discipline of IA.
Dr. Yasir Ayaz from National University of Science and Technology (NUST) acknowledged this effort of presidency and talked about that authorities has taken a proper initiative, he has additionally been appointed as head of this enterprise via the HEC.
Dr. Yasir says:
“That is an period of fourth industrial revolution (Trade four.zero) however Pakistan remains to be dwelling within the second industrial revolution (Trade 2.zero) period. We had been lagging far behind the remainder of the world because the developed nations have began utilizing synthetic intelligence to maximise the manufacturing of the economic sector. The usage of robotics within the warfare is changing into a routine matter whereas synthetic intelligence is being utilized by the fashionable world for surveillance objective”.
Complete 19 universities from private and non-private sectors have utilized after the announcement of this challenge by HEC. Six public sector universities had been chosen on the idea of apparatus and school.
The six universities that are chosen for this challenge embrace NUST, Islamabad, Comsats Institute of Data Know-how (CIIT) College, NED UET Karachi, College of Engineering and Know-how (UET) Peshawar, UET Lahore and College of Punjab Lahore.
NUST would be the headquarter for this enterprise and it’s going to prepare two laboratories i.e. Clever Robotics Lab and Deep Studying Lab. The CIIT College will prepare Medical Imaging and Diagnostic Lab. NED UET Karachi has been granted for 2 labs i.e. Sensible Metropolis Lab, Neuro Computation Lab.
UET Lahore has given the approval of creating an Clever Criminology Lab and Punjab College will develop Agent-Primarily based Computational Modeling Lab. Every faculty will probably be providing Masters and Ph.D. strategies in AI discipline.
