The Tamil Nadu government is said to be working on the 'world's first' policy for safe and ethical use of artificial intelligence, according to Santosh K. Mishra, CEO of Tamil Nadu E-Governance Agency, and commissioner of e-governance in the Tamil Nadu government. State government officials have told the media that they might be releasing a blockchain policy soon. The policy is expected to set certain parameters that will need to be met before release of an AI-based solution, including in government. "While new technologies open up huge opportunities, they can also throw some big surprises. Governments and private institutions roll out these technologies in their domain. If they have not completely understood the pitfalls therein, there can be massive disasters. That is what we are countering by bringing out this policy." he added. The policy is expected to assist the state government in implementing AI and blockchain solutions in public administration by subjecting procurement to fulfillment of 'seven parameters' as set out in the policy.
