In his speech, Shri Ashwini Vaishnaw stressed the government of India’s goal of democratizing technology and artificial intelligence (AI) so that everyone can use them and no one gets left behind.

Mr. Hiroshi Yoshida expressed gratitude to the Indian government and said that India’s hosting of GPAI demonstrates the country’s strong commitment to responsible AI. As the Global South Chair of GPAI, he backed India. He reported that the Horishma AI Process Friends Group has grown to 53 countries, with India being one of the first countries to join. Japan established the Tokyo Center of GPAI, he said.


According to Shri Jitin Prasada, India is prepared to lead the world in AI innovation. Our goal is to support a strong, diverse AI ecosystem. The fact that India has the highest AI talent penetration rate in the world and has made significant investments in supporting AI companies in the nation are clear indicators of this. He emphasized the goal of INDIAai, which is to use AI to benefit India and to make AI available in India. He underlined the importance of teamwork in creating AI solutions to address issues and hurdles in important industries like healthcare, agriculture, and education.

Speaking on the topic of AI truths, Ms. Debjani Ghosh clarified that the first is that AI is transforming; the second is that investment and return on investment must be balanced; and the third is that AI is driven by humans and should not be viewed as a panacea. She hoped that by being fully inclusive and keeping humans informed about AI instead of keeping AI in the dark, INDIAai would become the gold standard for AI.

“While AI is undoubtedly transformative, it is not magic. We humans will play a crucial role in making AI real. I believe we are well positioned to lead the era of applied AI with human centricity at its very heart.”


During the inaugural event, Mr. Abhishek Singh greeted dignitaries, GPAI specialists, and representatives from academics, industry, entrepreneurs, government research, and academia. In his brief explanation of the INDIAai Mission, he revealed that 12 sessions spanning two days will examine the mission’s seven pillars in detail. The objective is to deliberate on the difficulties and propose potential solutions from a variety of angles. Additionally, he informed them that India, as the organization’s chair, is collaborating closely with the OECD, the global south, and GPAI member states to develop the organization’s future vision.
