Ensuring AI doesn’t harm digital citizens: A top priority for Rajeev Chandrasekhar

AI harm digital citizens

According to Rajeev Chandrasekhar, the government will regulate Artificial Intelligence(AI) technology so that it doesn’t harm ‘digital citizens.’

The way we approach AI regulation is very straightforward. In a press conference to highlight the digital initiatives taken so far by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government, Union Minister of State for Entrepreneurship, Skill Development, Electronics and Technology said that AI will be regulated the same way as Web 3 or any emerging technology will be.

By using AI technology, we will safeguard digital citizens,” he said, adding companies willing to operate in India must first mitigate harm to users.

Additionally, Chandrasekhar addressed the concerns about job losses from disruptive technologies, saying that AI in its current form does not pose a threat to jobs.

The current form of AI, he argues, is largely task-oriented and cannot handle situations requiring logic and reasoning.

AI is disruptive, but we do not anticipate its replacement of jobs in the next few years, since the current stage of AI development is task-oriented, not reasoning, logic, etc.”

AI is not as sophisticated at this point as reasoning and logic, the minister said.

As India has a strong IT industry and a large amount of data, AI-based utilities have tremendous potential in the country.

In many countries, AI technologies are being used to improve service delivery and reduce human intervention, but job losses remain a concern as the technology evolves.

It was here in the national capital that OpenAI CEO Sam Altman met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and discussed various aspects of artificial intelligence, including the need for global regulation. His company deals with artificial intelligence technologies and has developed ChatGPT.

PM Modi wrote in a tweet after meeting Altman that India’s tech ecosystem is ripe for AI — especially among youth.

As for Chandrasekhar, he expressed gratitude to Modi for India’s digital development, including the introduction of 5G and faster internet services.

Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s leadership, and under his vision, the country has transformed in the last nine years.

“The bad days of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) led by Congress lost decade when people were fleeing the country, scams were everywhere and no investment was being made,” he said.

India has made tremendous advancements since then, according to him, receiving the highest FDI and creating more jobs than ever before.

“The world wants to partner with Indian entrepreneurship and Indian entrepreneurs to build the technologies of the future,” he said.

According to him, “I think the people will agree that PM Narendra Modi Ji deserves to be thanked for 9 years of tremendous work that he has done for our country and our youth.”
