GPA to Develop Framework of Rules, Guidelines to Ensure User Safety
India gathered member states of Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) to work on a common framework of rules and guidelines about data governance to prevent user harm and ensure safety of both the internet and AI.
GPAI is a congregation of 25 member countries, including the US, the UK, EU, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, and Singapore. India joined in 2020 as a founding member.
It works in collaboration with partners and international organizations, leading experts from industry, civil society, governments, and academia to collaborate to promote responsible evolution of AI and guide the responsible development and use of AI, grounded in human rights, inclusion, diversity, innovation, and economic growth.
The Minister of state for Electronics and Information Technology, Rajeev Chandrasekhar proclaimed about the significance of understanding that user harm, criminality and issues that threaten trust online are proliferating.
“Collaborative projects such as establishing Centres of Excellence (COE) in member countries should be taken up to be able to work together to build the future of AI
On the subject of India’s vision of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ (the world is a family), Chandrasekhar implied that the India-Stack that transformed governance and democracy in India and benefitted millions of Indian citizens, is designed to be open sourced.
He believes that with GPAI countries can build common AI technologies and platforms that can be used by all member states and indeed benefit the people and citizens of all the participating countries.
The minister revealed the intention behind developing a common framework on creating skills and talent around AI, is that it will enable India to take a lead. “Collaborative projects such as establishing Centres of Excellence (COE) in member countries should be taken up to be able to work together to build the future of AI."
The minister represented India virtually at the Summit held in Tokyo. India also assumed the Chair of GPAI, an international initiative founded in 2020 to support responsible and human-centric development and use of AI.
