IDVIC 2023 — A Conversation On Integration Of Artificial Intelligence In Driver Assessment.

Yesterday at the Kimpinski Hotel in Accra, Ghana, maiden edition of the International Driver and Verhicle Innovation conference took place with lots of insightful conversations and speeches on the way forward of the transport sector in the country.

In one of the sessions moderated by multiple award-winning journalist, Bernard Koku Avle, three amazing personalities — joined to discuss how important it is to integrate Artificial Intelligence — AI in driver assessment.

Bernard believes artificial intelligence is very important especially in this technological era but in countries like Ghana, the use of common sense can solve lots of problems even before artificial intelligence is integrated. He cited a typical example of the many challenges on roads in Ghana……………

“I was going to say maybe let’s start with common sense in driver assessment, for instants we were arguing that even our roads are not marked so my main challenge is that before i go and get the drivers license i take an exam, in the exam i am asked many questions but half of the things i do not see on Ghana roads” he said

In some jurisdictions the usual way of assessing drivers is to ride along with them in the vehicle, it is believed that watching them drive helps understand their road safety skills and attitude. It is argued that using artificial intelligence can help increase the expected results.

Dr. Lucy Agyapong, an engineering lecturer at the Academic City — a Ghanaian tertiary institution which offers a world class programs on engineering, technology and entrepreneurship located in Accra spoke extensively on this subject matter.

 Honorable Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah, Member of Parliament of constituency who has vast knowledge on the transport sector also shared lots of information on why it is important to embrace it.
