Role of AI in Farming, Healthcare and Education

From preventing blindness to forecasting floods, AI has come a long way from the specialised labs where it emerged, here’s how it is transforming lives.

Further, AI has paved way for “Intelligent-Agents”, that understands the environment and take actionable decisions to maximize the chances of achieving a goal.

Transformation of Farming with AI

Agriculture contributes significantly to the country's economy; more than half of the country's population works in agriculture. With the huge increase in country’s population, the demand for food is high. Further, the farmer is under pressure to enhance productivity. At present, crops would be yielded with limited resources and traditional farming methods. Moreover, the risks involved in old-style agriculture is fluctuations in weather and price etc. Such kind of risks can be reduced by using AI technology.

Uses of AI in Agriculture

Improving Soil Fertility

Soil fertility plays a key role in agriculture. Before AI, the only way to find the fertility of the soil was possible only at a government-aided laboratory. Now, with Machine Learning (ML) algorithms, the data collected can predict how much fertilizer is required to make the soil fertile.

Crop Harvesting

Crop harvesting requires more human resource, and it is time-consuming. In recent years, the hiring a labour for crop harvesting has become a major issue for farmers.

AI-powered robots could be the best solution for farmers to do crop harvesting. Such robots will save time and reduce the harvesting waste.

Preventing Diseases

Farmers could prevent their crops from harmful diseases using AI with image processing technology, where AI can easily stop the severity of disease before it started spreading in plants. AI powered solution would suggest how much quantity of fertilizers to be used to save the crop yield.

AI in Healthcare

Today AI and robotics plays a vital role in healthcare. With the help of AI, healthcare physicians and providers could make accurate diagnoses and treatment plans. By using AI, the healthcare experts could make proactive decisions by analysing big data and recommendation systems for patient preventive care.

Applications of AI in Healthcare

Streamlining Medical Records

Maintaining medical records consumes precious time of nurses. Hospitals could lessen this workload by implementing machine learning algorithms.

Hospital Robots

AI-powered robots are used in healthcare sector to improve patient care in operating rooms and clinical settings. During the COVID-19, such robots were very useful in delivering medicines to infected patients. On the other hand, AI-powered robots can also assist doctors during surgical procedures.


Telemedicine allows doctors to make real- time, data-driven decisions about patient's health, which results in better doctor-patient interaction. At the same time, patients can receive treatment remotely without visiting a hospital by utilizing AI technology.

AI in Education

Education is yet another important sector where AI could make a significant impact. Moreover, education sector adopted AI in the wake of the pandemic. With the use of AI technology, learning has improved to the next level which is benefitable of both teachers and students.

To Wrap-up this article, AI powered technologies will play an increasingly critical role in turning data into readily available, actionable information to fuel this new era.
