So, check this out, there’s this influential force behind the AI chatbot ChatGPT, and they’re hosting a developer gathering in Bengaluru in January 2024. The main aim is to talk about AI safety with Indian developers. This is huge, man. Anna Makanju, Vice President of Global Affairs for this mysterious influential force, she’s super excited about this whole thing. She talked about it at the Global Partnership on Artificial Intelligence (GPAI) Summit in New Delhi.
Fresh from their inaugural DevDay conference in November, the same influential force is really focusing on getting Indian tech folks to share their thoughts on AI safety. Makanju says they want to bring these developers and influential product leaders together to tackle some tough safety challenges in AI.
And get this – during her speech at the summit, Makanju talked about how important India is on the global stage, with its top talent and cutting-edge tech businesses. She says we really need strong governance models for AI, you know, to make sure it’s safe and the benefits are spread out fair. She’s all about creating an international body to make this happen.
Now, in some other news, there’s word that this influential force is looking to expand in India, with a former VP of Elon Musk’s thingamajig joining them as a senior advisor. This move lines up with their broader strategy and follows a visit to India in June.
So, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, kicks off the GPAI Summit and is getting people from all over to talk about AI stuff. The Indian government is working on this big announcement with other countries to keep AI safe and encourage innovation, which lines up with Modi’s commitment to making sure AI helps people and is trustworthy.
So, as this influential force steps up its game with Indian developers, they’re really showing a proactive approach to dealing with AI safety challenges. It’s not just about India’s role, though. It’s a big move toward making sure AI is done responsibly. It’s exciting, man. Can’t wait to see how this all unfolds.
