Prof. Pushpak Bhattacharyya appointed member of NITI Aayog's National Advisory Committee on AI
NITI Aayog, in a letter addressed to Chief Secretaries of all State/UT Governments, as well as Secretaries of Central Ministries, has requested to perform an ‘AI Check’ in all new projects to identify specific areas in which Artificial Intelligence can be used. Both State Governments and Central Ministries are keen to work with NITI Aayog for identifying potential projects and taking relevant initiative
. Consequently an Expert Committee has been created to provide necessary support for taking this Dialogue further with Central Ministries and State Governments for identification of projects and policy initiatives. The Committee would work with NITI Aayog to identify potential projects, implementation frameworks, adoption of new technology in various fields, areas of further research, data related issues, and various policy initiatives, etc.
Prof. Pushpak Bhattacharyya has been appointed member of this committee, as per, office memorandum F.No. M-18011/34/2019-DM&A of NITI Aayog
