SUMMARY

This discussion report recommends India collaborate with intelligent technology leaders to support research and application of AI across sectors, current and future workforces, and safe data usage. 

This report identifies the following barriers to effectively develop and deploy artificial intelligence at scale: a) shortage of research and application of AI, b) need optimized data sharing systems c) high cost and insufficient knowledge for AI use cases, d) privacy and security regulations around data usage, collection, and sharing, and e) need for a cooperative ecosystem to adoption and application of AI.

Intelligent technologies enable machines to perform cognitive tasks, such as thinking, perceiving, learning, problem-solving and decision making. AI systems can optimize production, take over mundane tasks, and manage connection. Five sectors are prepared for AI disruption: a) Healthcare, b) agriculture, c) transportation and mobility, d) education and e) city infrastructure.

To reach India's AI objectives, the publishers present a two-tiered structure India’s AI research: a) Centre of Research Excellence (CORE) concentrates on developing better knowledge of existing research while pushing technology deployment through new knowledge; International Centers of Transformational AI (ICTAI) focus on developing and deploying use-case based research.

The changing demands in the job market require reskilling the existing workforce while preparing future employees. The report recommends certified training modules that are designed in collaboration with the private sector and educational institutions. Lastly, India must promote job creation in areas that support AI development, deployment and application.

To join the intelligent technology evolution, it is important that India first creates an AI strategy plan that supports AI development, deployment and application to scale.
