Navigating the Growth of AI Technology in Indonesia

Anto Satriyo Nugroho, Head of PR at KAKS BRIN, believes that AI technology can be highly beneficial for measuring and interpreting external data. This, in turn, can facilitate the extraction of valuable insights and aid in achieving specific objectives.

Over the past few years, there has been an increasing global interest in the field of AI technology. With ongoing developments in the field, AI is becoming increasingly versatile and can now be deployed in many more areas and industries. From healthcare and transportation to finance and education, the potential applications of AI are seemingly limitless.

According to Anto, the impact of AI on society is inevitable and will likely bring about significant changes in the nature of available jobs. As a result, there will be a growing need for the workforce to better prepare themselves to adapt to these changes. He recommends that Indonesia take steps to prepare for the impact of AI technology.

This growing trend has resulted in a rising demand for skilled AI professionals and experts in the country, underscoring the need for Indonesia to continue investing in AI research and development to remain competitive in the global marketplace.

Given that humans remain at the centre of the equation, he stressed the importance of diligence, continuous learning, and research to foster innovation and facilitate ongoing growth.

Many research labs in academia and private industry are now creating AI software. One of these AI is the subject of study at the National Research and Innovation Agency’s (BRIN) Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Cyber Security (PR KAKS). ITB, UGM, Jenderal Soedirman University, UPI, and others have all collaborated with PR KAKS BRIN on various research projects.

With more investment, Indonesia can position itself to take advantage of the opportunities that arise from the increasing use of AI technology while mitigating any potential negative effects. Anto recommended that anybody interested in learning more about AI connect with the Indonesian Artificial Intelligence Society (IAIS), a group of AI enthusiasts, and the Indonesian Association for Pattern Recognition (INAPR).

Artificial intelligence’s strengths lie in its ability to retain and relay information, which gives it an edge over human memory. Artificial intelligence (AI) has various uses and advantages. Some of them include assisting individuals with impairments in communicating and saving time. Anto recognises that AI could be applied in a wide variety of contexts, from learning new tasks and solving problems to listening to information and making plans.

Anto cited several examples of simple AI activities, such as translation, navigation, fingerprint identification for digital forensics to identify victims of accidents and crimes, and the use of mathematical methods to solve arithmetic problems.

However, he also acknowledged that the accuracy of AI-powered devices can vary widely, making them unsuitable for certain applications, such as map suggestions.

It should be noted that in certain instances, the accuracy of AI can be quite high. For instance, in Japan, electronic manufacturers have collaborated with experts in the field of handwriting recognition to develop a system that can accurately identify an individual’s handwritten numerals from 0 to 9 on facsimiles, with an accuracy rate of approximately 99%.

The Indonesian government has implemented regulations from the Ministry of Home Affairs and Disdukcapil that mandate a maximum error rate of 3% for AI-powered systems analysing electronic KTPs in the country.

Anto provided insight into the extent of AI development in Indonesia and the country has made significant progress in this area, with various industries and sectors already adopting AI-based solutions to optimise their operations and enhance their productivity.

AI has been utilised in the healthcare industry to detect the emergence of new diseases and epidemics worldwide. At the urging of Indonesia’s National Research and Innovation Agency, the country’s leaders have resolved to prepare for the possibility of a pandemic by creating the resources it would need to respond effectively.
