Union Minister of Commerce & Industry Suresh Prabhu said that Government will use Artificial Intelligence (AI) for good governance and proper regulations and corrective action will be taken to protect citizen’s privacy and ownership of data.

India is transporting more data than US and China put together and the top six companies in the world are using this data with value addition and monetization, said Prabhu.

He added that India is strengthening its legal system and regulatory framework to deal with this world of digital data.

The Minister said that AI is the technology of today and one who masters this will rule the world.

Every country is developing an AI strategy and India too is working on developing a strategy for the use of AI for the common good, he added.

Prabhu was speaking at the International Colloquium on Ethics and Governance of Autonomous AI System for a Better World held in New Delhi on Monday.

The two-day Colloquium has been organized by Department of Science and Technology, CMS, ITUAPT and InfocomThink Tank.

The opening session was addressed by Prof. K Vijay Raghvan, Principal Scientific Advisor to Government of India and Dr. R. S. Sharma, Chairman, TRAI.

Prof. Vijay Raghvan in his remarks said that Government of India has taken the initiative to formulate a national strategy for use of AI and make the process transparent and participative in order to create awareness in civil society about AI.

R. S. Sharma, Chairman TRAI, in his address said that a data rich country like India must develop a national policy spelling out ownership of data, privacy of data generated by citizens and issues of data portability so that the sovereignty of country is not compromised.

The two-day event, being held on February 18-19, 2019, will see many international experts brainstorm about ethics of AI and machine learning, legalities, application of AI, relevance of block chain technology and effect of automation on the labour force.

Professors from five IITs, CDAC and other renowned institutions are participating in this two-day Colloquium.
