Remote Voting Viable Through Ai, Says Ranjan | Hyderabad News – Times of India

Hyderabad: ‘Remote voting’ in an election can be foolproof and it has been demonstrated successfully in Telangana, IT principal Secretary Jayesh Ranjan said on Tuesday.
Ranjan said that though rival parties continue to battle it out over use of EVMs, raising doubts about functioning, technology has gone further to make remote voting possible.
Addressing a seminar on ‘Artificial intelligence for military applications’ at MCEME, Secunderabad, Ranjan said that in remote voting one can cast his vote from home and verification of identity can be done through AI. He said that remote voting had also been tried out in Estonia.
It may be mentioned that in October 2021 about 3,000 people had participated in smart phone-based e-voting in a dummy election in Khammam.
Ranjan said that the military’s AI requirements can be explored through Telangana government’s T-AIM (Telangana Artificial Intelligence Mission).
Earlier, at the inaugural ceremony, Lt Gen J S Sidana, commandant, MCEME, and colonel commandant of Corps of EME, said that MCEME was collaborating with IIIT, IIT-Hyderabad, T-Works, Bits Pilani and T-Hub on AI needs.
