AI made govt-public relations equal: Tanmay Bakshi
Sharjah - Bakshi told the gathering that the radical advances in technology have changed the face of relationships between governments and their citizens.
Technology must be utilised to deliver information in a more efficient way, said Tanmay Bakshi, youngest Artificial Intelligence (AI) scientist in the world, during a session at the International Government Communiation Forum (IGCF2018) on Wednesday.
"The world needs more programmers and we should enable children to innovate and have access to the growth of 4th Industrial Revolution technology. Artificial communication should be used to enable those who cannot communicate naturally. AI is going to empower us more." Bakshi told the gathering that the radical advances in technology have changed the face of relationships between governments and their citizens.
"Traditional communication meant that there were millions of people trying to make their voices heard to one government and that is simply impossible as an effective form of communication. With the advent of social media, there is now access to real-time feedback which allows governments to immediately gauge public opinion. The communication between citizens and the state is now equal."
The 14-year-old self-taught AI expert, who has developed multiple apps, published a book, hosted TEDx talks and spoken at IBM Watson summits around the world, believes it is his generation who will be crucial to maintaining the momentum.
