"I want to invite you all to a fascinating programme which celebrates strides in AI and innovation - the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence Summit 2023! The summit will begin on 12th December. I am confident you would love being a part of a vibrant platform as this.

We are living in a very interesting time period.

Decades of fast-paced innovation and the power of human endeavour have brought to life what was once considered to be only in the realm of imagination.

In this whirlwind of rapid advancement, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one area where its applications are expanding at an exponential rate.

This revolutionary technology is now in the hands of a new generation – young, brilliant minds who are swiftly enriching its vast potential.

India, as one of the youngest nations with a vibrant start-up ecosystem and a talented workforce, is poised to be an active contributor to the evolution of AI as the world leaps into a not-so-distant future.

India offers solutions that are scalable, secure, affordable, sustainable, and replicable on a global scale. India’s Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI) initiative is a prime example of such pioneering efforts.

In the last 9-10 years, India and its citizens have leap-frogged with the help of technology. It won’t be an exaggeration to say that India achieved, in a matter of few years, what took other countries a generation. This was possible through the fast-paced penetration of mobiles along with internet connectivity and scalable models for digital inclusion.

Similarly, in the field of AI, India is looking to take a giant leap to empower its citizens.

Be it serving citizens in their language,

be it making education easier and personalised,

be it making healthcare more accessible,

be it making agriculture more informed,

India is using AI for various productive purposes.

The world today is witnessing that…

When India grows, it does so to ensure an equitable and inclusive model of growth.

When India innovates, it does so to ensure that no one is left behind.

When India leads, it does so to ensure that it can take everyone along towards the goal of the greater good.

With the same spirit in the realm of AI, India's approach has been to enable a universal understanding and a conducive environment, steering the use of AI towards the betterment of humanity.

For AI enthusiasts and stakeholders, the GPAI Summit Expo provides a unique opportunity to witness cutting-edge innovations and collaborations that will define the next era of artificial intelligence.

Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Government of India, is the Lead Council Chair for the summit. The event aims to guide the responsible development and use of AI worldwide, emphasizing principles such as human rights, inclusion, diversity, innovation, and economic growth.
