Policy recommendations for sustainable growth of AI ecosystem in India

Blog: NASSCOM Official Blog

The rise of AI comes with several statutory warnings and requires the ecosystem to come together for a sustainable growth. The government has a pivotal role to play in driving and enabling the implementation of a large-scale AI program by creating institutions and providing public goods that enable AI ecosystems, while also encouraging the private sector to innovate and thrive in the AI space.

The recently launched joint report by NASSCOM, ICRIER and Google on Implications of AI on the Indian Economy, conceptualizes AI as a GPT and estimates the impact of AI on India’ economy. To further, detail the growth potential of AI, the report deep-dives into Case Evidences guided by a Capabilities Framework that analyse both AI developing firms and impact, on firms that have adopted AI-powered solutions. My previous articles have covered each of these aspects in detail.

The report also proposes actionable recommendations that are individually important to the implementation of a large-scale AI program, which is the focus of this article. These approaches have already been set in motion by various Government policies, but require a further boost.

Given the above issues, Government has an active role to play in creating institutions and enabling an AI ecosystem, while also encouraging private players to innovate and thrive. Action-oriented policy recommendations are critical for the implementation of a large-scale AI program. The report proposes the following policy recommendations:

There are certainly differences in how countries have approached policy making in AI, and these are primarily because of the role of the Government as an enabler and that of a developer/adopter. For instance, China and USA, the two nations leading AI development have opposite approaches to policy in AI:

Interestingly, in the context of India, we perceive the policy direction to be a combination of both!
