India strives for global standards to prevent AI from harming humanity • The Register

India’s IT Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar has called for the development of global standards to ensure artificial intelligence does not harm humanity.

“We should all be concerned about user harm,” Chandrasekhar said this week at the meeting of the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) — a 29-strong team formed in 2020 after the G7 bloc decided that the world needs a multilateral think tank to consider the impact of AI.

“I would encourage member states to consider developing a common framework of rules and policies on data governance, security and trust related to both the internet and AI,” Chandrasekhar said.

With India set to assume the GPAI presidency in 2023, Chandrasekhar’s comments carried some weight.

The panel already seems to agree on the subject of the minister’s remarks, as the organization said in a ministerial statement after the conference, “Oppose the unlawful and irresponsible use of artificial intelligence and other technologies that are inconsistent with our shared values.”

Another resolution called for multi-stakeholder expert groups convened by the GPAI to “promote greater alignment between governments and the AI ​​multi-stakeholder community.”

India also chairs the G20 bloc and has previously signaled that it will use this status to promote global regulations that reduce the opportunities for cryptocurrencies to be used for money laundering.

In an interview this week, India’s “Sherpa” at the G20, Amitabh Kant – former CEO of the National Institution for Transforming India – said a theme of the country’s presidency will be promoting its digital governance model.

This model expresses itself in the form of the India Stack – open-source versions of the digital infrastructure that the nation uses to run its own digital government services. India hopes other nations will adopt the stack and digital governance model it expresses.

The government sees digital services as transformative as they enable direct interaction between citizens and governments, replacing inefficient and potentially corruptible bureaucratic processes.

Kant said he hopes the G20 presidency will help other nations understand India’s achievements in this area.

He also said that the G20 presidency and the many associated ministerial meetings will promote India as an alternative source of manufacturing resources. Kant specifically pointed out that COVID-19 has shown the world that concentrating manufacturing in China has proven unhelpful – making India a natural alternative. ® India strives for global standards to prevent AI from harming humanity • The Register
