New Delhi : According to Union Minister of State for Information Technology (IT) Rajiv Chandrashekhar, the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) summit, a consortium of 29 member countries including the European Union, on Wednesday announced the adoption of the New Delhi Declaration. The declaration agreed to collaboratively develop AI applications in healthcare and agriculture, as well as to include the needs of the Global South in the development of AI.

Additionally, nations participating in the declaration also agreed to create a global framework on AI trust and safety and use the GPAI platform to make AI solutions and benefits available to all. India also pitched for hosting the GPAI Global Governance Summit to finalize the proposed framework in six months.

“GPAI’s 29 countries have unanimously adopted the New Delhi Declaration, which promises to keep GPAI front and center in shaping the future of AI in terms of innovation and collaborative AI creation between partner countries. The countries agreed to create applications of AI in health care, agriculture and many other areas relevant to all our countries and all our people,” Chandrashekhar said.

He further said that GPAI will be “an inclusive movement that will focus on including countries in the Global South, and making the benefits of AI and AI platforms and solutions available to the world, including the people of the Global South.”

The visiting delegation to the GPAI included Jean-Noël Barrot, French Minister of Digital Affairs; Hiroshi Yoshida, Vice Minister of Internal Affairs of Japan; and Viscount Jonathan Camrose, UK Minister for AI and Intellectual Property.

Congratulating Japan for setting up a third ‘Expert Support Centre’ for AI, along with such existing centers in Canada and France, Barrot said, “Over the next few months under the Indian chairmanship of GPAI, we will work on Will discuss how we can collect some of ours. Expert resources with OECD to expand our reach and capacity to deploy AI for the best possible solutions for governance and the well-being of our people.

Both Yoshida and Camrose emphasized the need for inclusivity as an important part of GPAI’s role in the global development of AI. Yoshida said the organization “wants to encourage more developing countries to join GPAI.”

After the conclusion of the GPAI summit on Thursday, the Center will unveil its official AI policy under the India AI program on January 10. A global discussion on the development of AI rules will take place at the Korea Security Summit in mid-2024.

Earlier in an interview on Wednesday peppermintChandrashekhar said India’s approach towards regulating AI comes at an intersection of enabling innovation while imposing guardrails that prevent AI harms – a concern India raised in November’s UK AI safety report. Have already raised in the summit.

“Governments have lagged behind innovation and allowed it to remain unregulated for many years. As a result, we have large islands of commercial power that are distorting the open nature of the Internet, i.e.; Big Tech Firms. This time the governments do not want to whitewash like before. The issue today is that regulating anything on the Internet cannot happen in silos, because in approximately 88% of harms the perpetrators are located in one jurisdiction, the victims are in another, and the crime itself occurs in a third. Until there is a global understanding of all this, there is no point in having a major regulation on the harms of AI in India if other countries do not do so,” Chandrasekhar told Mint.

The minister further said that when it comes to addressing mass harm concerns, such as missile control or access to nuclear material, there is precedent on global regulatory agreements.

“There are global restrictions on how harmful technologies can be distributed, beyond what we have seen in the past. AI can be just as radioactive if we allow it to be used by bad actors. It is an incentive for nations to realize the good and recognize that those who have access to it can also actually do bad things. Therefore, no country can play the role of police in cyberspace. Therefore, we need a global legal framework,” he said.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said “humanitarian and democratic values” will be used in the development of AI globally.

“AI has to be all-inclusive and assimilate all ideas. The more inclusive its journey, the better the results. The direction of AI development will depend on humanitarian and democratic values. Modi said, it is up to us to give space to emotions along with efficiency, ethics and effectiveness.
