AI Summit 2023: Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently urged tech enthusiasts, innovators, and stakeholders worldwide to join the upcoming Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) Summit 2023. In his LinkedIn post, Modi emphasised the transformative impact of AI across various sectors such as technology, innovation, healthcare, education, and agriculture.
Modi pointed out that India, as one of the youngest nations with a dynamic startup ecosystem and skilled workforce, is poised to significantly contribute to AI's evolution globally. He emphasised India's capabilities to offer scalable, secure, affordable, sustainable, and replicable solutions on a global scale, citing initiatives like India’s Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI) as prime examples.
Highlighting India's rapid technological advancements over the last decade, Modi praised the country's progress in mobile penetration, internet connectivity, and models for digital inclusion. He also underscored India's commitment to leveraging AI for various productive purposes, such as language-serving solutions, personalised education, accessible healthcare, and informed agriculture.
Modi emphasised India's inclusive growth model, ensuring equitable development and innovation that leaves no one behind. He stressed the importance of global forums like the GPAI, where India is a co-founder, in guiding responsible AI development and use among its 28 Member countries and the EU.
India's active participation and contributions to GPAI initiatives, aiming for open, safe, secure, and accountable AI, have been significant since the organisation's inception in June 2020. Modi reaffirmed India's dedication as the Lead Chair of GPAI to utilise AI for people's welfare, especially in nations of the Global South, ensuring a regulatory framework for safe and trusted AI.
He highlighted the Summit's sessions, including the AI Expo featuring 150 StartUps, as opportunities for innovative showcases and discussions aimed at fostering widespread and enduring AI implementation.
