Policy groups forms for Artificial Intelligence


Amid a raging global debate on the consequences of artificial intelligence (AI), India has formed a “policy group” to study the new technologies and recommend a framework for its adoption. Policy group has been created by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology with representation from the academia, which has done a lot of research on the subject, and Nasscom for the industrys perspective. The group will focus on aspects like skilling the workforce, privacy, security and fixing responsibility if anything goes wrong. Nasscom will be holding a stakeholders’ consultative meeting on what is required from a policy perspective by the end of the year for the same. Over 800 multinationals such as Intel, Boeing, Bosch, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley that have set up their global in-house centres in the country, create $20 billion of work every year, growing at 10 per cent which is faster than the services export.
