New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi has stressed the need for a comprehensive examination into the rapid growth of artificial intelligence (AI) over concerns about safety. He has appealed to the Group of 20 (G20) nations to work together in tackling this urgent issue.
Addressing the virtual G20 Summit, Prime Minister Modi said on Monday that artificial intelligence (AI) should be developed with a consideration for the needs of the people.
“AI should reach people, and it must be safe for the society,” PM Modi said. “Deepfake is a big concern. AI has to be safe for the public,” he added.
Recent weeks have witnessed growing concerns about the illicit use of AI, as criminals use deepfake videos targeting actors and social media influencers.
AI’s widespread impact persists in transforming and disrupting diverse sectors, fundamentally reshaping the operational dynamics of businesses.
Prime Minister Modi also added that it is crucial to ensure that the Israel-Gaza war does not escalate into a larger regional conflict.
