Telangana Information Technology and Industries Minister KT Rama Rao said that artificial intelligence should improve the lives of common people. 


The Minister said this during a chat held as part of NASSCOM Xperience AI Virtual Summit, titled 'IT is now about Intelligence Technology - India's AI Imperative'.

Rama Rao said that AI is a powerful tool which makes room for government innovation, for tackling traditionally difficult or nearly impossible problems.

"Any technology that is not used to improve the lives of common people is of least relevance. The focus of our state should be using these technologies to improve the life of a common man”, KTR said.

"Tackling the pandemic and its associated economic challenges has been a top priority for all states, and AI has played a crucial role," he added.

He also said that AI decision support systems will help the government in planning data-driven policy interventions in governance, food systems, security, healthcare, education, and beyond.

According to the report from the Minister, the Telangana State Innovation Cell (TSIC) is currently working on strengthening the social innovation ecosystem in Telangana. 

T- Social Startups Network (TSSN), under the Telangana State Innovation Cell (TSIC) and anchored by AIC-IIITH, as a dedicated platform for stakeholders for the social innovation ecosystem will amplify the overall impact and focus on social innovation and social impact in the state.
