A three-day international conference on Machine Vision and Augmented Intelligence (MAI) 2022 Gadkari at National Institute of Technology (NIT) Jamshedpur began with a call to young professionals, researchers, engineers, students and start-ups to help develop world-class Infrastructure for the country.
The conference was virtually inaugurated by Union minister of road transport and highways Nitin Gadkari. He highlighted the initiative taken by his ministry to design and develop Artificial Intelligence-based devices to control road accidents, detect black spots on roads and sleeping drivers at the wheel and to assess the quality of roads.
