AI is being used fiercely in Aadhaar

The AI/Machine Learning solution developed by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) is now being used by 47 units. Those using Aadhaar's machine learning include various state government departments in the country, apart from central government ministries and some banks.

Among many usages, it’s being used for registering beneficiaries under Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana; for authentication of beneficiaries in the PM Kisan scheme and for generating digital life certificates at home by pensioners. It’s being used for marking staff attendance at several government departments and for opening bank accounts at a few leading banks via their business correspondents.
