The chairperson noted the importance of data for artificial intelligence, shedding light on some of the key initiatives of the government of India to enhance access to quality datasets, including the National Data Governance Framework policy.

The press release noted that there were discussions about the current open data ecosystem, challenges in providing access to quality datasets for AI, the role of different stakeholders in ensuring the responsible use of data for innovation and the way forward for India.

It is noteworthy that the recently released report “Unlocking Potential of India’s Open Data” was also discussed during this session. NASSCOM, MeitY and industry partners such as Fractal, Microsoft, Infosys, IDFC Institute, TCS & Amazon constituted the Data Taskforce in 2021 to suggest ways to unlock the potential of India’s Open Government Data.

While talking about some of the biggest challenges that emerging AI companies and innovators face today with respect to data, Shri Umakant Soni touched upon the lack of access to a vast quantum of quality datasets that acts as an inhibitor for the commercialization and scaling up of AI solutions

It is interesting to note that the AI Pe Charcha series has been initiated as a part of Responsible AI for Social Empowerment (RAISE), India’s first global AI summit, which was organized by MeitY in 2020. The government aims to commence a much-needed discourse on AI to cause specific positive, tangible meaningful changes in the overall economic and social sphere.
