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.

Talking about Artificial Intelligence in air warfare, he said that it can bring enormous changes in the way air wars are fought in the aerospace domain.

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)

Canadian researchers have discovered an overlooked gene that plays a major role in the development of antibodies

Canadian researchers have discovered an overlooked gene that plays a major role in the development of antibodies, which help the immune system recognize and fight viruses including SARS-CoV-2, bacteria and other causes of infectious disease. The gene -- FAM72A -- facilitates production of high-quality antibodies by enabling the effect of an enzyme called AID (for Activation-Induced Deaminase), the researchers showed.

Immunologists have known for two decades that AID is essential to produce antibodies capable of clearing infections, but the full mechanism of its effect has remained unknown. "Our findings answer the long-standing question of how AID does its work," said Alberto Martin, a professor of immunology at the University of Toronto's Temerty Faculty of Medicine. "FAM72A helps AID to promote mutations in antibody genes that are essential for the development of effective antibodies," he added.

Mahanadi Coalfields Limited (MCL), a subsidiary of Coal India will set up a 50 megawatt (MW) solar power plant in Odisha's Sambalpur

Mahanadi Coalfields Limited (MCL), a subsidiary of Coal India will set up a 50 megawatt (MW) solar power plant in Odisha's Sambalpur at a total cost of Rs 301.92 crore, moving steadily towards its goal to achieve carbon neutrality by 2024. MCL has placed a turnkey order to set-up a 50 MW solar power plant with a Chennai-based firm M/s Hild Energy Ltd, which will establish this green energy project within a timeline of 10 months, the MCL said in a statement on Saturday.

This solar plant would cater to the captive power requirement of MCL. The Central PSU had successfully set-up a 2MW solar power plant in Sambalpur in 2014. The company said it has pledged a target of installing 182 MW of solar power by 2024 in order to become a net zero energy company, aligning itself to use cleaner forms of energy for coal production.

As the nation celebrated the 114th birth anniversary of his father - renowned poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan - megastar Amitabh Bachchan remembered his dad as he penned a heartfelt note for him. The actor took to his blog where he poured his heart out and also shared an unseen photo with his father. The image in question is from Big B's wedding in 1973, where the two are caught in a sweet moment as they look at each other.

Amitabh Bachchan wrote on his blog,

"My Father , my all .. November 27th his birth in the year 1907 .. Which makes it his 114th Anniversary .. He is in the heavens, with my Mother and they celebrate .. as do we , in thought word and deed .. (sic). But first."
