India is home to the world’s third-largest startup ecosystem, elite science and technology institutions like the IITs, robust and ubiquitous digital infrastructure and millions of newly-minted STEM graduates every year.

A such, India is well-positioned to become a global leader in the development of artificial intelligence. Industry analysts predict that AI could add up to $957 billion to India’s economy by 2035. India hopes to stand out in the international community not just as a leader in the Artificial Intelligence field, but also as a model to show the world how to responsibly direct AI for social empowerment. The nation has robust plans to leverage AI for inclusive development, representing the country’s ‘AI for All’ strategy.

Speaking at the inauguration, Prime Minister, Narendra Modi said Artificial intelligence is a tribute to human intellectual power, enabling humans to innovate tools and technologies. Today, these tools and technologies have also acquired the power to learn and think! The combination of AI with humans can do wonders for the planet.

India wants to become a global hub for AI and its approach is powered by core principles of Teamwork, Trust, Collaboration, Responsibility and Inclusivity. India’s National Programme on Artificial Intelligence is dedicated to the rightful use of AI for solving problems of society. It will be implemented with the support of all stakeholders.
