The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) assistant secretary, Abhishek Singh, emphasized the need of Indian entrepreneurs concentrating on expanding upon pre-existing fundamental models instead of developing new ones from the ground up.

Challenges of Developing Foundational Models

Singh underlined the difficulties in creating fundamental models, such as the large financial outlay and the dearth of individuals with the necessary skill set. He pointed out that not every company would be able to carry out these kinds of activities on its own. For Indian startups, the bigger potential is in developing apps on top of the base models that have already been created in India. Singh highlighted the availability of pre-existing models that can be applied to inference, application deployment, and fine-tuning, all of which can speed up ecosystem innovation.

Access to GPUs under India’s AI Mission

Singh talked on India’s AI agenda and the requirements that researchers and companies must meet in order to obtain computational resources to use Indian datasets to create solutions. He emphasized how the government prioritizes problem statements in areas like social impact, education, health, and agriculture to ensure that everyone has equal access to computing resources.

Future of AI Compute Infrastructure

Singh gave information about the government’s intentions to purchase GPUs in order to build a supercomputer infrastructure. He stressed the necessity of conducting user surveys to ascertain the computational requirements and the incorporation of many GPU alternatives in accordance with industry demands.

Applying AI to Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI)

Singh talked about how better service delivery might be achieved by incorporating AI into Digital Public Infrastructure (DPI) applications. He gave instances from the ministry of agriculture to show how AI-enabled solutions may improve accessibility with voice-enabled applications and provide personalized advisories.

Addressing the Challenges of Deepfakes

Singh underscored the significance of tackling the obstacles presented by deepfakes by means of technology remedies and regulatory structures. He emphasized the necessity of watermarking and tagging AI-generated content as well as the function of law enforcement in successfully implementing legislation. Singh praised OpenAI’s translation feature for its beneficial effects on Indian languages, but stressed that local players must improve their skills to keep up with these developments.
