Mapping the growth and challenges of artificial intelligence in India: An introduction
Author(s): Nitesh Rai
Abstract: Artificial Intelligence is marking its footprints all across the world in different sectors. India is no exception in this list. Artificial Intelligence has immense potential to contribute significantly to the whole project of Good Governance. In India, from health to education, Agriculture to Defense, AI is being used to accelerate the positive outcomes. AI, however, is throwing some very serious ethical question which requires our attention. From unemployment to the question of privacy, Transparency to the issue of biases, we need to discuss such issues before AI is implemented. This requires a comprehensive study of the subject matter. The study of AI should not be prerogative of any one particular discipline. The discipline of law is as much important as the discipline of social science. Study of AI from the social science perspective becomes more important when a machine that is working on the principles of AI will interact with an extremely diverse country like India. Different values, faith, caste, and languages throw a different kind of challenge that needs to be taken care off.
