At the recent Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) Summit held in Tokyo, India took over as the Chair of this global partnership. GPAI is an international initiative to support responsible and human-centric development and use of Artificial Intelligence. The event was attended by the Minister of State (MoS) for Electronics & Information Technology and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar virtually. He represented the country and took over the Chair from France, which is the outgoing Council Chair. Interestingly, India is also heading towards the presidency of G20, a league of the world’s largest economies, in December.

The power of AI

Shri Chandrasekhar said during the event, “We will work in close cooperation with member states to put in place a framework around which the power of Artificial Intelligence can be exploited for the good of the citizens and consumers across the globe- and ensure that there are adequate guardrails to prevent misuse and user harm.”

Noting that AI is a kinetic enabler for taking forward current investments in technology and innovation, the minister stated that India is building an ecosystem of modern cyber laws and framework that is driven by three boundary conditions of openness, safety and trust and accountability. He further reiterated India’s commitment to efficient use of AI for catalyzing innovation ecosystem around AI, that can create good, trusted applications for our citizens and the world at large. The government expects AI to add $967 bn to the Indian economy by 2035 and $450–500 bn to India’s GDP by 2025, accounting for 10% of the country’s GDP target of $5 trillion.

Japanese State Minister for Internal Affairs and Communications, Mr Tsuge Yoshifumi, Japanese Parliamentary Vice-Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry, Mr Makoto Nagamine, and French Minister for Digital Transition and Telecommunications, Mr Jean-Noël Barrot, also participated in the event among others.

National Data Governance Framework

It is noteworthy that we have implemented National Programme on AI in our country. Moreover, the National Data Governance Framework Policy (NDGFP), which is touted as one of the world’s largest publicly accessible data sets programmes, is under process. As per the government, NDGFP aims to ensure equitable access to non-personal data and focus on improving the institutional framework for government data sharing, promoting principles around privacy and security by design, and encouraging the use of anonymization tools. The NDGFP along with the envisaged Indian Data Management Office (IDMO) shall catalyse the next-gen AI and Data-led research and startup ecosystem, specified an official statement.

Notably, GPAI is a group of 25 member countries, including many western nations along with Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, the Republic of Korea, and Singapore, aimed to support responsible and human-centric development and the use of AI. India joined the congregation in 2020 as a founding member. It is a first-of-its-type initiative for evolving a better understanding of challenges and opportunities around AI. In collaboration with international organisations, leading experts from industry, civil society, governments, and academia it aims to promote the responsible evolution of AI and guide the responsible development and use of AI, grounded in human rights, inclusion, diversity, innovation, and economic growth.
