To assure moral and practical AI development, the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) established the Centre for Responsible AI (CeRAI).
According to a press release, CeRAI will concentrate on interdisciplinary research in Responsible AI and seeks to become a premier research institution with immediate influence on the deployment of artificial intelligence systems in India. Today, May 15, the Centre for Responsible AI held its inaugural session on “Responsible AI for India.”
Abhishek Singh, managing director, chief executive officer, Digital India Corporation, said, “AI is significantly influencing all of our lives. Whether we are aware of it or not, we use AI-based technologies every day in some aspect of our lives.”
“The risks and challenges that still exist while we use the same technologies for solving societal problems, ensuring access to healthcare, making healthcare more affordable, making education more inclusive, and increasing agricultural productivity, are extremely important than those involved in policy making and those working at the cutting edge of developing technologies,” he added.
The main objective of CeRAI is to produce research outputs, such as patents, white papers, and research articles that are published in high-impact journals and conferences. It also aims to produce technical tools in the form of toolkits, software, and curated datasets for the Responsible AI industry.
The center has organized a panel debate on “Responsible AI for India” during a workshop and seeks to collaborate with businesses, academic institutions, and government agencies. According to the statement, CeRAI is currently actively involved in attaining its goals.
