The Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC) and the Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology, Delhi (IIITD) collaborated yesterday to drive innovation in the realm of trustworthy and responsible Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the two institutions in this regard by Avinash Agarwal, DDG (C&B), TEC, and Deepika Bhaskar, Registrar, IIIT Delhi.

The collaboration specifically concentrates on addressing biases in AI systems and promoting fairness assessments while nurturing public trust in these technologies, aligning with the Government of India’s objectives.

The TEC has recently released a Standard for Fairness Assessment and Rating of AI Systems to build public trust in AI, developed after exhaustive stakeholder consultations. This collaboration aims to develop tools to assess bias risks systematically, and to establish a robust framework for evaluating and certifying the fairness and reliability of AI technologies.

Tripti Saxena, Senior Deputy Director General, TEC, said that this collaboration bridges the gap between academia and government bodies, fostering rigorous research and contributing to India’s leadership in AI.

Professor Ranjan Bose, Director, IIIT Delhi, emphasised the transformative nature of this partnership, marking a substantial leap forward in research, innovation and technological advancements in the AI domain. He outlined that the Centre for Artificial Intelligence (CAI) will lead the execution of this collaborative effort at IIITD.

Dr Debarka Sengupta, Head, CAI, reiterated the importance of academia serving as an impartial partner of TEC in developing and assessing robust and fair AI systems.
