The benefits of AI is now being reaped even in sectors that are traditionally technologically less sophisticated, such as agriculture and public utilities. AI’s potential to contribute towards socioeconomic causes like economic growth, health and well-being, and education is well accepted today. The Government too has a favourable attitude towards the use of AI to meet these goals. AI is expected to create new areas of economic opportunity and wealth creation, which will be an ingredient in retaining key sectoral competitiveness and, in turn, jobs. While increased adoption of AI is desirable, it is equally important to develop AI systems that operate in a responsible manner, without adversely affecting individuals or any section of society.
