      Ashwini Vaishnaw said that India to Legislate AI Regulations Soon: Report

      India can start the process of legislating artificial intelligence (AI) regulations after the conclusion of the Lok sabha general elections, as per a report, Union Minister of Electronics & Information Technology Ashwini Vaishnaw said.

      India has been planning to create some sort of regulatory framework to manage many issues that have popup with the rise of technology.

      This news comes just a month after the Indian government issued an advisory asking technology companies to seek “explicit permission” before deploying under-testing or unreliable AI models in India.

      That advisory was later withdrawn, and technology companies were ask to include visible labels containing “possible inherent fallibility or unreliability of the output generated”.

      Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw explain the government’s plans to create a larger regulatory structure for AI.

      Ashwini Vaishnaw said :

      “One thought is to form a self-regulatory body. But we don’t think that would be enough. We think that this regulation should be done by legislative method. We have already consulted the industry. After elections, we will launch a formal consultation process and move towards legislation.”

      He also said that the regulations would be “very balanced” and ensure that the creativity of the innovators was not stifled.

      But, highlighting copyright, financial, and commercial implications, Union Minister said that regulations were necessary.

      In 2023, since AI became mainstream, incidents of deepfakes have seen a marked rise.

      For the unversed, deepfakes are any synthetic media, images, videos, or audio, that are digitally manipulate or enhance to give the likeness of a living personality, likely to spread misinformation.

      Ashwini Vaishnaw also highlight the challenge of preserving intellectual property, an issue which has already become widespread in the US.
