In a major stride towards bolstering its standing in the field of artificial intelligence (AI), India is gearing up to host the maiden edition of the ‘Global IndiaAI 2023’ conference. This event, organized by the Narendra Modi government, is slated to witness the convergence of leading AI players, researchers, startups, and investors, both from India and around the world.
Scheduled for October, the ‘Global IndiaAI 2023’ conference is poised to showcase the robust and dynamic IndiaAI ecosystem, spotlighting initiatives such as DI Bhashini and India Datasets Program. The conference’s focus is multifaceted, spanning a spectrum of pivotal themes within the realm of AI. Topics encompass Next Generation Learning and Foundation AI models, the deployment of AI in healthcare and governance, its application in next-generation electric vehicles, emerging trends in AI research, and AI computing systems.
Leading the charge is Rajeev Chandrasekhar, the Union Minister of State for Skill Development, Entrepreneurship, Electronics, and Information Technology. Chandrasekhar assumes the role of Chairperson for the conference’s steering committee, which comprises esteemed members from the Ministry’s Digital Economy Advisory group, along with other eminent figures within the AI domain.
Elaborating on the significance of the ‘Global IndiaAI 2023’ conference, Chandrasekhar emphasized its potential to become a premier platform for AI enthusiasts and professionals, both in India and across the globe. He stated, “The Global IndiaAI 2023 conference is tentatively planned for October 14/15 and it will bring together the best and brightest in AI from India and around the world. This summit is expected to evolve and become a must-attend event on the annual calendar of the Global AI industry, startups, practitioners, researchers, and students.”
Drawing a parallel to the success of the SemiconIndia conference in the past, which was notably endorsed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chandrasekhar underscored how such platforms have catapulted India onto the global semiconductor map. He contended that just as the SemiconIndia conference catalyzed investments and growth within the semiconductor sector, the ‘Global IndiaAI 2023’ summit holds the potential to similarly invigorate India’s AI landscape and innovation ecosystem.
The upcoming conference signifies India’s ambitious strides in the realm of AI, underpinned by the government’s commitment to fostering innovation, research, and collaboration within this transformative field. The convergence of key stakeholders, from researchers and practitioners to startups and investors, is poised to catalyze knowledge exchange, facilitate networking, and lay the foundation for future AI breakthroughs.
As the conference dates approach, anticipation is mounting. The ‘Global IndiaAI 2023’ conference not only underscores India’s quest to establish itself as a frontrunner in the AI arena but also underscores the country’s potential to become a trailblazer in shaping the future of artificial intelligence. In a world increasingly driven by technological advancements, India’s foray into hosting this conference reinforces its dedication to innovation, knowledge dissemination, and sustainable growth in the AI domain.
