For the production of rice, the energy consuming equipments used include blowers, elevators, motors, boilers and steam distribution and many more. The efficiency of the product (rice) depends on the utilities maintained by the rice production mills such as electricity, air, water, labour, etc. Many of the rice plants in India and also in the different parts of the world adhere to several procedures for rice processing such as drying of rice, cleaning of rice, milling, whitening, polishing, grading, blending, sorting and packaging. There are different types of sorters and separators used for the rice to be free from any type of dust, fungal infections, plastic granules, unwanted grain, etc.
Many scientists remain doubtful that true AI can ever be developed. The operation of the human mind is still little understood, and computer design may remain essentially incapable of analogously duplicating those unknown, complex processes. Various routes are being used in the effort to reach the goal of true AI. One approach is to apply the concept of parallel processing_interlinked and concurrent computer operations. Another is to create networks of experimental computer chips, called silicon neurons, that mimic data_processing functions of brain cells. Using analog technology, the transistors in these chips emulate nerve_cell membranes in order to operate at the speed of neurons.
