About the Book:

What is artificial intelligence (AI)? How did it evolve over the years and what is it going to look like in the future? What are the opportunities and risks associated with AI? Where does India stand among the global AI ecosystems? This book answers these questions and gives a bird’s-eye view of the field of AI, with a special focus on India. In clear, jargon-free language it explains what is and, more importantly, what is not AI. It provides a well-rounded summary of the ongoing debates on ethics, regulation, bias, and data privacy surrounding the development and use of AI technology. Using up-to-date data, the book looks at India’s contributions to and adoption of AI, as the country has a significant stake in the AI revolution as one of the fastest growing economies.
