Why should Pakistan embrace Artificial Intelligence? 

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the field of computer science that deals with creating machines or software that can perform tasks that usually require human intelligence, such as reasoning, learning, decision-making, natural language processing, computer vision, etc.

The AI job market is increasing as more and more industries adopt AI to improve their products, services, and processes. According to a report by the World Economic Forum, AI could create 133 million new jobs by 2022 while displacing 75 million existing positions. The most in-demand AI skills include machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, computer vision, data science, and cloud computing. Some of the top job markets for AI positions right now include the San Francisco Bay Area, Austin, New York City, and Denver.

AI also has the potential to bring many benefits to society, such as enhancing healthcare, education, security, environment, and innovation. However, there are also potential adverse impacts, such as ethical, social, legal, and economic challenges. For example, AI may threaten privacy, security, human rights, democracy, and social justice.

Pakistan is one of the countries trying to harness AI’s power for its economic and social development. The government of Pakistan established the National Centre of Artificial Intelligence (NCAI) in 2018 to promote innovation, research, education, and industry collaboration in AI and related fields. The NCAI has identified several priority areas for AI applications in Pakistan, such as agriculture, health, education, energy, security, and manufacturing.

Pakistan faces challenges in adopting AI, including a lack of infrastructure, data availability and quality, human capital and skills development, regulatory framework and governance, public awareness and trust. To overcome these challenges, Pakistan needs to invest more in AI education and training programs (such as PIAIC), develop a national AI strategy and policy framework (such as NCAI), foster a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship (such as supporting local AI startups), and collaborate with international partners and stakeholders (such as participating in global AI initiatives).
