This move could be a significant development in India's AI industry and could help the country become a leader in the field of AI
The Union Minister for IT and Communications, Ashwini Vaishnaw, has hinted that the government is working on an Indian version of ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence chatbot created by OpenAI that can answer complex questions on various topics.
Vaishnaw suggested that an announcement regarding the Indian version of ChatGPT would be made in a few weeks, but he could not provide any further information due to Parliament being in session.
The Indian government has made significant progress in the fields of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and quantum computing, according to Vaishnaw. He added that many global developers prefer to partner with Indian start-ups, entrepreneurs and academicians as technology develops. The minister also stated that India would like to use Indian talent to develop solutions for India and the rest of the world in these two fields.
The development of AI technology by companies like OpenAI, Microsoft and Google has raised concerns among some industry leaders, such as Elon Musk, who believes that an AI arms race between these companies could result in the creation of AI systems that are far more powerful than humans and capable of making decisions that may not be in people's best interests.
Recently, OpenAI launched GPT-4, the successor to GPT-3, which is more intelligent and efficient and can potentially replace many professions. A survey conducted by job advice platform Resumebuilder.com on 1,000 business leaders showed that nearly half of the US companies that participated in the survey had already implemented ChatGPT, resulting in the replacement of workers.
