The GoI think tank NITI Aayog joined hands with the National Association of Software and Services (NASSCOM) and launched the Artificial Intelligence module for school students. The NITI Aayog is to be represented by Atal Innovation Mission of the think tank.
The Artificial Intelligence module is to be implemented in 5,000 Atal Tinkering labs and this is to empower 2.5 million students. NITI Aayog believes that India shall add 1.3% of its GDP if machine learning and Artificial Intelligence are developed.
It is expected that the global Artificial Market is likely to grow to the range of 15 to 15.5 trillion USD by 2030. Of this India is to certainly contribute 1 trillion USD. Therefore, its is important to prepare work power to sustain the growth of the field. If Indian work power is not being prepared to fill the future requirement, the spaces will be occupied by foreign nationals. This will create unemployment amongst Indian citizens and also push Indian economy backwards.

The Government of India (GoI) is to organize an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Summit called RAISE 2020. RAISE stands for Responsible AI for Social Empowerment. The Summit is to be held in New Delhi between April 11 and 12, 2020.
The summit will be attended by experts of Artificial Intelligence from all over the world. It will focus on using AI towards social empowerment, transformation and inclusion and also in other key areas such as agriculture, healthcare, smart mobility and education.
It is essential to implement AI in social transformation as it will help in bringing regulatory changes. It will improve the efficiency of work places, reduce operating costs. With autonomous transportation, AI can help save large amounts of fuel and time.
Though there are several benefits of Artificial Intelligence, the only concern towards the technology is that it has the potential to minimize the work force in a sector. Especially in a country like India that is second most populous in the world, it is essential to keep track that AI does not reduce employment opportunities.
The Summit will help understand all these key areas and act accordingly.
