Ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the US later this month, a senior professor at Stanford University has said that India and the US can enhance partnership in four areas such as artificial intelligence for health, diagnostics, human capacity building and biosecurity. Through this, cooperation in the health care sector can be taken to the next level. University Professor (Medicine, Cardiovascular Medicine) Anurag Myral said, “According to me there are four areas where India and America can increase partnership.”
He said that there are many people in India who are still deprived of good health care facility and India is working hard to fulfill it through its ‘Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission’.
Myral said, “The US has immense potential and is looking for a place where artificial intelligence-based tools can be built and manufactured well.” Indeed, there can be no better place than India to do so.
In the last year and a half, top officials of the Government of India have come to Silicon Valley and taken information from Stanford professor regarding ecology as part of the efforts of the government.
He said, “India and the US have complementary needs and competencies and for those AI-based solutions, India should work with the US or the US with India.” For example, you have ASHA workers who are working at the front end and they are looking after the local population there. You can imagine that an AI based platform can not only help these ASHA workers understand how the health of the people in the community is but also help them with some training to provide some kind of therapy or some kind of solution on the spot. Will enable.
