Government is working on AI regulation framework draft, focus will be on these three points

The last several months have seen significant advancements in AI. In addition, it seems that the government is taking this matter very seriously. Recently, the government has been developing a draft framework for regulations about artificial intelligence (AI), according to IT Minister Rajiv Chandrashekhar.

It will be unveiled by the government by June or July of this year. This has happened at a time when worries about the rise in deepfakes and their negative effects are being voiced on a global scale. India has offered to take the lead in preparing this draft paper, Chandrashekhar stated, speaking at the NASSCOM Technology and Leadership Forum (NTLF) 2024 in Mumbai.

The IT Minister said that we hope that before June-July this year, a draft framework will be discussed and debated, and a mid-year GPAI (Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence) will be submitted.

Most countries especially the Global South countries also participate in it. These are generally left out of any debate about the future of technology.

Chandrashekhar also informed that the government will focus on three focus points. AI regulation aims to use AI for economic development. With these rules, the government also wants to address potential risks and disadvantages.

Along with this, he said that we will fully realize the potential of AI, but will also install guardrails to prevent misuse. The IT Minister also said that the government believes that having strong talent in India will give India an advantage at the global level.
