FOR
DEVELOPMENT OF HANDBOOK ON DATA PROTECTION AND PRIVACY FOR DEVELOPERS OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) IN INDIA: PRACTICAL GUIDELINES FOR THE RESPONSIBLE DEVELOPMENT OF AI

Background: The Indian National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence formulates the goal to position India among the leading countries on the global AI map. India aims to leverage transformative AI technologies to ensure social and inclusive growth in line with a unique brand of #AIforAll. The development and use of AI systems often requires large amounts of data including personal and non-personal data. As such, this creates potential risks to the legal and ethical use of data as well as to fundamental rights including the right to equality, the prohibition of discrimination and the right to privacy. In order to address these risks, the Indian AI strategy proposes establishing data protection and privacy frameworks as well as promoting international standards of AI ethics.
