A field of computer science that trains computers to replicate the human vision system. This enables digital devices (like face detectors, QR Code Scanners) to identify and process objects in images and videos, just like humans do.

The primary objectives of the AI Mission include establishing robust computing powers for AI within India. The mission seeks to enhance services for startups and entrepreneurs while fostering AI applications in critical sectors such as agriculture, healthcare, and education.
