‘India did in few years what took others generations’: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced India’s ambitious plans to take a significant leap forward in AI to empower its citizens. Emphasizing India’s rapid technological advancement, the Prime Minister stated that the country has achieved what took others an entire generation in just a few years.

In a LinkedIn post inviting people interested in AI to the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence Summit 2023, which he described as a captivating program celebrating progress in AI and innovation, Prime Minister Modi expressed India’s readiness to actively contribute to the evolution of AI as the world moves toward a not-so-distant future.

Highlighting India’s status as one of the youngest nations with a dynamic start-up ecosystem and a skilled workforce, Modi asserted that the country provides scalable, secure, affordable, sustainable, and replicable solutions globally. He pointed to India’s Digital Public Infrastructure initiative as a prime example of pioneering efforts in this direction.

“In the last nine to 10 years, India and its citizens have leap-frogged with the help of technology. It won’t be an exaggeration to say that India achieved, in a matter of few years, what took other countries a generation,” remarked the Prime Minister. He attributed this rapid progress to the widespread adoption of mobiles, internet connectivity, and scalable models for digital inclusion.

Discussing India’s aspirations in the field of AI, Modi outlined the goals of making healthcare more accessible, enhancing personalized education, and utilizing AI for various productive purposes in agriculture. He emphasized that India’s growth approach focuses on equity and inclusivity.

“When India innovates, it does so to ensure that no one is left behind. When India leads, it does so to ensure that it can take everyone along towards the goal of the greater good,” stated Modi, highlighting India’s commitment to inclusive development.

The Prime Minister underscored the importance of forums such as the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI), where India is a co-founder. With 28 member nations and the EU, GPAI aims to guide AI’s responsible development and use. Modi commended India’s contributions to GPAI since its inception in June 2020, emphasizing the country’s dedication to safe and trusted AI.

According to Modi, India’s election to the GPAI Council in November 2022 reflects its commitment to Safe and Trusted AI. As the Lead Chair of GPAI, India is committed to leveraging technology, particularly AI, for the welfare of people, ensuring that nations in the Global South are not left behind in benefiting from its advantages.

Asserting India’s dedication to establishing a regulatory framework for safe and trusted AI, Modi expressed confidence that it will bring nations together for widespread and enduring implementation. The upcoming summit will feature various sessions, including the AI Expo, where 150 startups will showcase their strengths. The summit, scheduled from December 12-14 at Bharat Mandapam, will focus on advancements in AI and innovation, with over 28 member countries and the EU participating in the GPAI.
