The who’s who of AI & ML congregating at Hyderabad for this Conference paves the way for Hyderabad to be positioned as the AI Capital of the World.

AI Days have brought together experts from various fields including IT, Healthcare, agriTech, FinTech, Semiconductors, EduTech, and various startups, to discuss the way forward in building AI for the betterment of society. Speakers from companies including Facebook (Meta), Microsoft, Qualcomm, Micron, Ozonetel, Tech Vedika, DigiQuanta, and Arka MediaWorks among others are part of the extensive deliberations on governance and policy aspects of AI.

Y Kiran Chandra, Founder, Swecha, speaking on the occasion said, that today there are lots of apprehensions, and fears about AI, but AI can help us find various solutions. We have over 2000 IT professionals, academicians, research scholars, and students who are here to discuss the solutions for unresolved issues and challenges. They are showcasing the solutions they found to such issues. We launched Telugu AI Voice Assistant, even if an illiterate farmer asks for a weather update, it will provide it, it can help to start and switch off the pump set with a voice command.

A highlight of the Conference is the launch of Telugu AI Voice Assistant. This AI assistant will enable farmers, frontline healthcare workers, sanitation workers, and others to access the wonders of artificial intelligence. This project enables them to interact with AI using their voice in their mother tongue. A live demo of using Telugu AI Voice Assistant was done to remotely operate the water pumps in farms, at the Conference. This simple solution prevents the electrocution deaths of farmers while physically switching on & off the water pumps.
