Watchdog group finds no breach in AI policy
Watchdog groups on Wednesday announced that there is no breach of AI policy by the government in the implementation of the National Robotics Strategy.
The guidelines have been issued to all departments in the government, with an aim to improve the quality of the workforce.
The guidelines also provide for a clear and transparent roadmap for the creation of a National Robotics Council to promote robotics in government, and the creation and maintenance of a robotic laboratory at the National University of Science and Technology (NUS).
The guidelines say the government must ensure that robotics is available to every government employee, irrespective of rank or position.
In the absence of such a plan, the government should ensure that there are no loopholes in the AI policy, the groups said in a statement.
The groups have been pressing the government for the introduction of AI guidelines and training for all government workers.
The NUS has been the only organisation to raise objections to the guidelines, but it has not taken a stand yet.
“This will only affect the AI community, and not the wider public.
We will raise the issue with the government soon,” said K. Ramanujam, chairperson of the AI Forum of India (AIFI).
