WHAT IS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE?
Artificial intelligence (Al) is wide-ranging branch of computer science concerned with building smart machines capable of performing tasks that typically require human intelligence.
Al is an interdisciplinary science with multiple approaches, but advancements in machine learning and deep learning are creating a paradigm shift in virtually every sector of the tech industry.
GPAI (Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence) will be supported by a Secretariat, to be hosted by Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in Paris (Capital of France), as well as by two Centers of Expertise- one each in Montreal (Canada) and Paris (France).
GPAI will be able to take advantage of the OECD’s expertise on Al policy and its leadership in setting out the first international standard for trustworthy Al —the OECD Principles on Artificial Intelligence.
RECENT INITIATIVES BY INDIA IN THE FIELD OF Al
India has recently launched National Al Strategy and National Al Portal and have also started leveraging Al across various sectors such as education, finance, agriculture, health care, e-commerce, telecommunications, etc.
The National Al strategy was released in 2018 by NITI Aayog. It is termed `AlForAll’ as it is focused on leveraging Al for inclusive growth in line with the Government policy of Sabka Saath Sabka Vikas.
National Al Portal: It has been developed jointly by the National e-Governance Division of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) and the National Association of Software and Service Companies (Nasscom).The portal is meant to work as a “one stop digital platform” for all Al related developments in India.
