AI, machine learning crucial for development of MSMEs, said Dr Amit Mitra
Calling for the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning for the MSMEs, the State Finance and Industry Minister Dr Amit Mitra urged IT industry body NASSCOM to come out with AI-based solutions.
He was speaking at NASSCOM’s first international SME (small and medium enterprises) Conclave at the Biswa Bangla Convention Centre, Kolkata.
He said that sectors of public interest like health, education, and small business can benefit a lot from AI and machine learning-based solutions. Applications like sowing, timing management, students’ management and traffic management can also be taken up, he said.
Importantly, Dr Mitra also touched upon the ills of AI and machine learning if not deployed judicially.
The meet saw the participation of around 600 SMEs from 40 cities across 18 States of the country.
