AI for All? Workshop Reports
Reports from our Policy Lab series on the use of automated algorithimic decision making systems in India.
Niti Aayog released India's draft national strategy for Artificial Intelligence in 2018. Titled AI for All, the draft strategy emphasised that AI could help address social sector problems in India. It also positioned India as a garage for developing AI solutions for the developing world. The strategy paper spent a considerable amount of space discussing the opportunities, but much less attention was devoted to the risks, challenges, and societal conundrums.
We organised a series of policy labs to identify and unpack some of the challenges and risks in the sectors identified in the strategy paper. Spanning over 12 months, our policy labs brought together a wide range of stakeholders, from government, industry, civil society, media and academia.
