And it’s not just Bollywood hits – there’s a Punjabi song with Modi’s voice that’s gotten over 17 million views. That’s not all, though. Falu, an Indian-American singer, got a Grammy nom for her song “Abundance in Millets” with Modi. And the political parties are using AI-powered voice cloning to send personalized messages to voters and workers. It’s like somethin’ out of a sci-fi flick. But I’ll be damned if it ain’t happening.
Now, on top of all that, we got AI TV anchors in Odiya, Kannada, and Hindi on TV channels in India. And let me tell ya, the AI revolution ain’t just in music and TV – it’s in healthcare too. Diagnosis, treatment, and patient care have all improved with the help of AI. And India’s expected to spend billions on AI by 2025, adding trillions to its economy by 2035. That’s some big numbers, man.
But check this – there’s a little fear mixed in with all this excitement. The UK just held an AI Safety Summit to talk about the risks around artificial intelligence. And the British Prime Minister got over a hundred world leaders together to hash this stuff out. Even the US Vice President and India’s Minister of State were there. They’re hopin’ AI can represent “goodness, safety, and trust”, but I can’t help but wonder if we can keep it all under control, you know?
There’s talk of forming an official AI Safety Institute and an international regulatory body to handle all this, but we’ll have to wait and see, my friends. It’s a wild ride, and we’re all strapped in. But it’s not all bad – AI can do some great things too, like predict election outcomes and provide crucial election-related info. So it’s a mixed bag, my friends, full of excitement and fear, just like everything else that’s new and unknown.
