About the Conference

The ability of the machine to analyze like a human brain, think, perceive, decide and solve problems, termed as artificial intelligence (AI), is increasingly used for strategizing and decision making. From fictional reality to virtual reality, AI has made rapid strides AI has made its mark in myriad ways. Advancements in data collection, processing and computational power have propelled AI systems which can be deployed in multifarious disciplines for performing myriad tasks viz., robotic surgeries,  voice recognition software, use of robots for service provision, chatbots for customer care, language translation, drone and AI led warfare, facial recognition tools, autonomous vehicles using automatic driving sensors etc. AI, propelled by data, is increasingly employed in day-to-day activities. The advancements in AI and its adoption can be judged from the fact that the humanoid robot Sophia was granted full citizenship by Saudi Arabia. AI, thus, has the potential to have a positive impact on various sectors like healthcare, the legal profession, education, agriculture, smart and efficient energy, transportation etc. However, the technology is still at the nascent stage and deployment of AI is confronted with multiple hindrances like lack of efficient ecosystem for working of the technology, lack of expertise, high cost and lack of legal regulation of AI. Furthermore, AI has posed several serious challenges, including but not limited to, data privacy and data protection; malicious use of AI; use of lethal autonomous weapon systems; ethics and AI; liability regime for AI, issues relating to Intellectual Property Rights etc. In this backdrop, law can-not remain aloof from such technological advancements. Therefore, countries across the globe are considering legal regimes for the regulation of AI. Many countries have enacted or are in the process of enacting laws for the regulation of various aspects of AI viz. data protection and data privacy, autonomous vehicles, facial recognition etc. However, none of the countries across the globe has been able to delineate the liability regime for AI. Keeping in view the adoption of AI in various sectors and its huge potential, governments of all countries are making efforts to adopt a policy framework for regulating the use of AI. In this backdrop, the Government of India mandated NITI Aayog to formulate National Strategy for Artificial Intelligence.
