BENGALURU: With Artificial Intelligence (AI) increasingly touching aspects of our lives and businesses, Infosys co-founder and chairman of India Innovation Summit, Kris Gopalakrishna, has called for creating ‘sandbox’ for applying AI in a more secure manner.Addressing the 14th India Innovation Summit organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry here on Thursday, Gopalakrishna said, “Every aspect of disruption will have its pros and cons, and until we fully understand the implication of technology, this AI will need to be navigated very carefully and in a balanced manner.”
He said India was currently witnessing the commercialisation of AI and with the technology being accessible, its cost had come down, touching every aspect of people’s life and businesses. He said AI would be good for the world provided the technology was used appropriately. “The government must allow the industry to try out AI-based applications in an environment that is safe and secure. We need to create a sandbox for the introduction of AI so that we don’t slow down progress. We must create the right regulations to retrain and educate our workforce.”
He acknowledged that India had the opportunity as well as the responsibility to lead the world in AI. The two-day summit, organized by the Confederation of Indian Industry, was inaugurated by K J George, Minister for Large & Medium Industries and IT & BT, on Thursday.
