Launch of The Artificial Intelligence Index Report 2021

May 21, 202115:00 - 16:15Zoom

SRITNE recently launched an Artificial Intelligence Index (AI-Index) that provides unbiased, data-backed assessment of various dimensions of AI across sectors and geographies to researchers, policy­makers, and the public that enhances their under­standing of the impact of this technology, its adop­tion and the technological progress.

Our vision is to create a robust barometer of how India adopts and exploits AI. 

A comprehensive report comprising data-backed insights  on the impact of AI adoption in India will be released soon. We sincerely hope it will generate public interest in this complex field that is rapidly transforming or­ganizations and the future of work as we know it.

In this context, we have proposed to release a report titled “The Artificial Intelligence Index Report 2021” in an exclusive event led and participated by representatives from academia, industry, and government.

The event provides the opportunity to attend informative sessions on this subject delivered by senior leaders from Industry and Government, Dr. Rohini Srivathsa, National Technology Officer (CTO), Microsoft India and Mr. Jayesh Ranjan, Principal Secretary of the Industries & Commerce (I&C) and Information Technology (IT) Departments, Government of Telangana.
