Artificial Intelligence-assisted next-gen technologies would be employed for threat monitoring in the Indian Air Force’s captive networks, including the current network upgrades, IAF chief Air Chief Marshal R.K.S. Bhadauria said on Monday.

“If we intend to utilize AI heavily in combat aviation, we may need to redefine or even abandon some traditional principles. These principles are not strict or templated. Essentially different nations with different threat perceptions would have different requirements and this would have evolved over a period of time and experience,” he said, at an E-symposium on Artificial Intelligence for Air Warriors organized by the FICCI here.


“AI can give you models with impeccable logic to prove that the proposed solutions are the best,” he added.

On Artificial Intelligence in the force, Air Chief Marshal Bhadauria said: “Our entire inventory management has been computerized and digitized and we have already started to work on AI-based formulation so as to come out with predictive maintenance or predictive threat scenario.”

“We have started testing AI and AI-based applications on some projects which are at different stages. We have already improved our operation efficacy by shrinking timelines in the entire chain,” he added.

On training strategy, the IAF chief said: “We have already working on effective training strategies where data recorders example are being used to identify outliers in pilot performance, be it in operations, exercises using AI techniques to determine the strong and weak points in terms of maneuvering or overall orientation, etc.”

He also said “to optimally use AI, we must first decide as to when the system should be supervised by the human and when not. This is the decision that should involve technical logic and questioning. Humans are designed to be more effective at problem-solving whereas AI thrives in an environment with high correlation and underlying patterns.” (IANS/KB)

Pind Daan at Jagannath Ghat, Kolkata.

The Pitru Paksha starts after the Full Moon day, and this day marks the beginning of the waning phase of the Lunar cycle. This event is roughly of 15-day period, and is of great significance. From this day, rituals like Tarpan or Tarpanam and Shradh are carried out to pay respects to dead relatives and ancestors.

It is believed that from the very first day till the last day, the unhappy souls of the deceased return to the Earth to see their family members. So, in order to ensure that the dead attain Moksha, i.e. to get liberation, family members of these souls quench their thirst and satisfy their hunger by performing the Pind Daan, which includes offering food consisting of cooked rice and black sesame seeds. The literal meaning of Pind Daan is the act of satisfying those who no longer exist physically.

Cubbon Park is a lush green garden at the heart of Bangalore

At the heart of Bangalore city, a large 300-acre space of lush greenery and heritage stands as a symbol of the city's past, present, and future. Cubbon Park is every child's favourite park, every Bangalorean's haven of fresh air, and altogether, the city's pride.

It stands testament to the past, in terms of the diversity of flora it houses. Bangalore traffic in the recent past has grown into a menace, but the stretch between MG Road and Cubbon Park is always a pleasurable place to stop and wait for the signal to turn green. The gust of wind that blows here, and the smell of mud, coupled with floral scents instantly transports citizens to Old Bangalore, where the weather was fine, and the trees loomed over roads with thick canopies that did not even allow rainwater to penetrate. Cubbon Park is also a historical site, and one of the few remaining monuments of colonial heritage in Central Bangalore. It houses many statues and among them, the most famous is that of Queen Victoria, which faces the St. Mark's Square.
