Of late, the Government of India has been prioritizing the development, adoption and promotion of Artificial Intelligence. In 2018, substantial funding was allocated to the national program for artificial intelligence. Many Union Ministries are also making great leaps in the field of AI. In 2017, the Union Ministry of Commerce and Industry set up an AI Task Force which, in its report, hailed the potential of AI to be a solution to many socio-economic problems across ten identified sectors. Furthermore, the Union Ministry of Electronic and Information Technology set up four committees to prepare a roadmap for the National Artificial Intelligence Programme.
