The ministerial declaration highlights how these nations are dedicated to following principles that guide the responsible handling of reliable AI.

After seven hours of extensive discussions, delegates from 28 nations and the European Union have officially ratified the “New Delhi Declaration” within the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI). GPAI brings countries from North and South America, Europe, and East Asia, all dedicated to advancing the “trustworthy development, deployment, and use of AI.”

The ministerial declaration highlights how these nations are dedicated to following principles that guide the responsible handling of reliable AI. These principles are deeply rooted in democratic values and human rights. The goal is to push forward the development of AI in a way that’s ethical, responsible, and focused on benefiting humanity. 

Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Minister of State for Electronics and Information, said that the declaration aimed to establish GPAI as a pivotal force in steering the trajectory of AI, focusing on fostering innovation and cultivating collaborative AI initiatives among partner nations. 

He also said that the consensus among countries involved commitments to explore AI applications in crucial sectors such as healthcare, agriculture, and other areas of shared interest, demonstrating a collective goal to address global challenges through technological advancements.
