Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday advised against the demonisation of artificial intelligence and similar technology. He said that AI has the potential to transform people’s lives but at the same time assured it will not replace all human jobs in the future.
While speaking at the book launch of ‘Bridgital Nation’ written by Tata Sons chairman N Chandrasekaran and Chief economist and head of policy advocacy at the Tata Group, Roopa Purushothaman, Modi said that technology can act as a bridge between citizens and the government to meet the demand and delivery of governance services.
“AI is a talent and force multiplier. The need is to build a bridge between AI and human intentions,” he said.
Modi’s comments come at a time when unemployment is on the rise for several quarters and traditional growth sectors such as banking, auto and manufacturing too are showing signs of a slowdown.
