what we do

The task force on AI for India’s Economic Transformation’ will submit concrete and implementable recommendations for government, industry and research institutions

The dawn of the 21st century saw electronics becoming pervasive in almost every manufactured object in the world, from toy cars to aeroplanes and from rockets to nuclear reactors. The next transformation is turning electronics hardware and software intelligent, radically changing their relationships with human "wetware". While there is a strong consensus that Artificial Intelligence will be a game-changer and a key  factor in economic development, there is a concurrent need to arrive at frameworks that will promote its deployment taking all social factors into account. The Ministry of Commerce and Industry has set up this Task force on Artificial Intelligence to kick-start the use of AI for India's economic transformation.
