In India, the Law is Yet to Transition Into the Age of Artificial Intelligence


Indian laws need to be examined to better address the changes in technology. The explosion of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket at its Cape Canaveral launch pad on September 1 and the crash of Tesla's driverless car in June are powerful reminders that while technology driven by artificial intelligence (AI) is advancing at a dizzying pace, regulators cannot lag behind. Although self-driving cars have not yet hit the Indian roads, app-based taxi aggregators such as Uber and Ola do operate in the country. We have all experienced the many benefits of AI – email spam filtering, web page translations and Facebook's auto recognition to tag friends and family in a photograph. A number of AI startups in India are helping people book cabs, order food, pay bills and recharge mobile phones.
