AI has ethical concern, govt not planning to regulate its growth
The government on April 5 said that it was not planning to regulate Artificial Intelligence (AI) in India. “To address the ethical concerns and potential risks associated with AI, various central and state government departments and agencies have commenced efforts to standardize responsible AI development, use and promote the adoption of best practices,” the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology said, in response to a question in the Lok Sabha.
“However, the government is not considering bringing a law or regulating the growth of artificial intelligence in the country,” the Ministry added.
It was replying to a query raised by Bahujan Samaj Party MP Shyam Singh Yadav. While the government said it was not considering an AI regulation, it agreed that there were “ethical concerns and risks due to issues such as bias and discrimination in decision-making, privacy violations, lack of transparency in AI systems, and questions about responsibility for harm caused by it.” The Hindu
