The draft paper titled ‘Towards Responsible#AIForAll’ said there is a potential of large scale adoption of AI in a variety of social sectors. “AI expected to boost India’s annual growth rate by 1.3 per cent by 2035…The government may fund specific research projects in responsible AI and introduce ethics of AI into the university curriculum,” the draft document said.
Many of the harms caused by AI are not new, the document said adding that the existing legislations cover most of the consequences raised under ‘Systems Consideration‘. Noting that growth of AI is relatively recent, it said, however, there is a growing interest in both private sector and government agencies in developing tools to manage the risks. According to the draft document, the rapid rise of AI has led to automation of a number of routine jobs.
