“We want Artificial Intelligence (AI) and tech to represent goodness, safety and trust,” said Rajeev Chandrashekhar, Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship and Electronics and Information Technology, yesterday. He was speaking at the ‘AI Safety Summit 2023’ in the United Kingdom (UK).

The minister emphasised that international collaborations are important in shaping the future of technology in an era where it is presenting some of the most exciting opportunities ever for mankind. He also apprised his international counterparts that India has effectively embraced technology under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, propelling the nation into a thriving digital economy, transforming the lives of its citizens. He emphasised that this transformation has ushered in tremendous opportunities, and will continue to do so through AI.

 “Our Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has argued for several years that the future of technology, whether it involves innovation, partnerships or the institutional framework for regulating technology and innovation for the benefit of all mankind, should be driven by a coalition of nations rather than just one or two countries. He believes that the institutional framework should be less episodic and much more sustained with strategic clarity,” he stated.

The ‘AI Safety Summit 2023’ has assembled representatives from around the world, including governments, prominent AI corporations, civil society organisations and research experts.

He further noted that AI is a kinetic enabler of India’s already accelerating and expanding digital economy, growth and governance. “AI represents big opportunities for us, and we have our minds clear of what needs to be done to mitigate any potential downsides associated with AI or any emerging technology. We approach AI with a prism on openness, safety, trust and accountability,” he added.

The two-day summit has brought together ministers and representatives from various countries, including the UK, United States (US), Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Kenya, Saudi Arabia, the Netherlands and South Korea, among others.
