Success tale of artificial intel
Bangladeshi tech start-up Gaze has been working on artificial intelligence (AI) for improving citizen services through increasing footprints in public and private domains.
The firm has already deployed AI-enabled services in different sectors in association with corporate and law enforcement agencies.
Talking to Daily Observer, Gaze Chief Strategy Officer Syed Tanzil Ahmed shared different segments of applied innovation for developing Bangladesh better. Tanzil began the chat sharing about the AI deployment in road safety issues.
"Law enforcement can employ AI to speed up the bulk of their work. For example, our work with DMP will help enforce road safety regulation in a more efficient manner. Due to the sheer number of vehicles on the roads and the general ignorance of traffic laws, it gets difficult for police officers to manually monitor individual violations of laws," he added.
Tanzil thinks airport security is another sector that could be enhanced by artificial intelligence. He said terrorism has been a longstanding threat to the global society, and one of the most efficient ways to curb this threat is to secure the borders of a country.
Tanzil is spearheading "Project Digital Dhaka" - Gaze's initiative to turn Dhaka into a smart city; improving road safety, traffic management, generating digital traffic tickets, and improving the quality of life in Dhaka.
The tech firm has been working with a Bangladeshi conglomerate in identifying vehicles that are missing or illegal.
Through Automatic License Plate Recognition (ALPR), Vehicle Recognition and reference to the relative database, it will be possible to identify any vehicle that needs to be apprehended or recovered.
Tanzil is very hopeful about the young generation of Bangladesh who will lead the prosperous future driven by technology.
He urged young minds to keep following their dreams, but to also remember that Bangladesh needs them. In the past, with all the lack of career options, societal pressure and poor living standards.
"When all our prodigies come together, we will have the chance to enhance the world's idea of what Bangladesh is. Gaze is a team of students and young adults united under one vision, and with our current momentum we are set to enhance the lives of millions. Imagine what will happen when more of such teams come together," Tanzil concluded the conversation.
It's may mention, Gaze has been working for service innovation based on artificial intelligence for creating social impact through technology.
