Centre forms policy group to study artificial intelligence Gadgets Now


MUMBAI: 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, IT industry body Nasscom said today. "We all are currently working out on a policy framework on AI," its vice president K S Viswanathan told, when asked about concerns over AI or the intelligence exhibited by machines. He said a "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 industry's perspective. The group will focus on aspects like skilling the workforce, privacy, security and fixing responsibility if anything goes wrong, Viswanathan said.
