    Cybersecurity is a growing concern for both government and corporations. Adversaries are leveraging AI in their tools, techniques and processes. Governments should leverage AI for vulnerability and threat and risk management. AI can help in forecasting, preventing and mitigating risk. There is a high need for automated cyber defense, which can be addressed using AI. All we as Pakistan need to do is develop AI tools to train out people to become AI specialists. And in the short term bring the expertise from abroad.

    1. Case Loads

    Throughout the government, there are backlogs of many types: cases, requests, applications, etc. Well-trained “YesBots” could speed through these and could answer “yes” to the ones that are definitely going to get a yes when a human sees them. This could reduce the size of the backlogs, let humans focus on the challenging requests and speed up the answer of “yes” for millions in the queue today. – Timothy McGuire, Sound United

    2. Recruiting Automation

    The U.S. government is the largest employer in the world, and it’s no stranger to one of the biggest challenges among all organizations: hiring adequate talent. One way the government could take advantage of AI is to adopt recruiting automation technology to streamline candidate sourcing, automate interview scheduling, promote diversity hiring and mitigate unconscious bias and favoritism.

    3. Safety

    Artificial intelligence is a set of powerful technologies that can help keep us safe. From predicting natural disasters and aiding in rescue efforts to warning us of external threats and even automating high-risk tasks that we do every day like driving, AI can make the Pakistan a safer place. By enabling these technologies to help keep us safe, Parliament and other governmental bodies can do their part to make this a reality.

    4. Cybersecurity

    Cybersecurity is a growing concern for both government and multi-national corporations. Adversaries are leveraging AI in their tools, techniques and processes. Governments should leverage AI for vulnerability and threat and risk management. AI can help in forecasting, preventing and mitigating risk. In the coming years, there will be a high need for automated defense, which can be addressed using AI.

    5. Taxation
    AI use cases are many, and the government, as the private initiative, will take advantage of them. One way that government could take the most out of AI is by coordinating the financial analysis from multiple transaction mediums for taxation purposes. No more tax evasion and no more double taxation

    AI delivers the most benefits when combined with other technologies like IoT. AI-powered drones, for example, can be used for surveying areas during natural disasters or inspecting gas pipelines in remote areas. These drones can work longer and more efficiently than piloted drones, can automatically choose the most efficient flight path, and change on the fly to avoid obstacles or bad weather. – Maciej Kranz, Cisco Systems

    Irregular Financial Activities

    AI has the potential to increase productivity, reduce the tendency to make biased decisions and improve safety. Applying artificial intelligence in the government can make services faster and more tailored. One way that the government can use AI to its advantage is by detecting irregular financial activities like money laundering, terrorist financing and fraud. – Darwin Romero, Applaudo Studios

    Response Filtering

    Our government has the ability to leverage the internet for feedback on proposed legislation, but as nefarious characters began injecting staggering numbers of automated responses, the result set lost its impact on the process. AI could be used to detect even the most nuanced non-human responses, filtering out the noise more effectively and allowing the people’s voices to carry through. – Dustin Henderlong, Threadless

    The question is to how to leverage AI on the realm of Cybersecurity. Criminals are using AI and bots to infiltrate in legitimate businesses. If AI is used perhaps it will still be a step behind. This is something to be considered.

  • Imran Shahid

    By leveraging the influence of AI, Pakistani businesses, NGOs and the government can improve the livelihood of our communities. Certain AI applications have emerged and are being widely used in countries abroad. For instance, predictive models for disaster relief enable first responders to automatically analyze large-scale behavior and movement through multiple sources of data including social media platforms, web forums, news sources, etc. It would be great if we can introduce these types of applications in Pakistan and many other r=types of AI application which will take Pakistan to first world country level.
    This can only happen if we get our act together and incentivize Pakistani app developers focus on AI apps.

    Most of the schools in our country lack experienced teachers and resources to enhance students’ knowledge. And I don’t think many will disagree on this matter. We should introduce AI tools such as personalized learning assistants which can simplify learning by making tutoring services and learning materials accessible to all students, wherever they are. This way education will be more easy and accessible to more people.

    First of all I would like to appreciate that someone is finally doing something for Pakistan. Now regarding the topic, I think the medical field may actually benefit the most from emerging AI technologies. For example, drones to deliver medical supplies and blood to hospitals and clinics that are difficult to access by car. This will prove extremely useful for northern areas / remote areas in Pakistan. We must invest in software and hardware for drone manufacturing in Pakistan.

    Pakistan’s main product and source of income is agriculture. It’s common practice for Farmers in developed countries to monitor crops more effectively and make better predictions on planting, weeding and harvesting using AI tools. This will prove to be beneficial if our farmers have this technology. Its’s high time we focus more on our agriculture industry. When will the government focus on developing the agriculture sector by using AI tools. First the government will have to get agriculture out of the hands of the wadera’s and Chaudry’s in order to ensure this sector develops.
