Speaking about the progress in the field of AI, he said that in the last decade, the entire field has witnessed huge progress in AI.

“We launched GPT just 1.5 years ago. We thought it would be a low-key research preview, but in the last 18 months, we have seen that people are using it in transformative ways, and it’s impacting people’s daily lives, including here in India.”

Highlighting the widespread use of AI, he said that AI is being used in a lot of industries across the world.

“AI has already added speed and dynamism to the already dynamic entrepreneurial ecosystem in India. Entrepreneurs understand market gaps. They are building innovative products. We’re reducing the cost of intelligence, enabling developers to write code and helping them create completely conversational and natural interfaces to computing,” he said.

During the same event in his inaugural speech, Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw emphasised on the shared responsibility to work towards the safe use of AI.
