The National Association of Software and Service Companies (Nasscom) has unveiled a comprehensive set of guidelines on frameworks for generative AI technology in India.
According to the Nasscom policy document, the guidelines are an early initiative in the country’s efforts to regulate AI as more companies and businesses adopt this transformative technology.
The guidelines prioritise the responsible research, development and use of AI in India. The Nasscom says they were developed through consultation with industry experts, researchers, practitioners, academia and civil society representatives.
According to the policy document: “The guidelines focus on research, development and use in relation to GenAl. The guidelines define GenAl as a type of artificial intelligence technology that can create artefacts such as image, text, audio, video and various forms of multi-modal content.
“The object of these guidelines is to promote and facilitate responsible development and use of GenAl solutions by different stakeholders. The guidelines also intend to achieve a robust, common understanding of normative obligations amongst stakeholders to help them improve their net social impact with GenAl and to foster trust in the adoption of GenAl technologies across industries.”
