AI has garnered attention the world over. Now, there are both exaggerated claims - such as what it could mean for the future of the human workforce and aspirational use cases of AI. The field of AI arose in its early stages as an attempt to mimic human intelligence using computers. But, how does an AI powered system function when deployed on the ground?
Joining us today Vidushi Marda, a lawyer and a researcher who has contributed immensely in investigating the consequences of integrating Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems in societies. Her groundbreaking work has been cited by the Supreme Court of India in a seminal ruling on the Right to Privacy. Vidushi currently works as Senior Programme Officer at ARTICLE 19, where she leads research and engagement on the human rights implications of machine learning. She is also an affiliate researcher at Carnegie India with an exclusive focus on law enforcement use of emerging technologies.
In this episode, we draw from her exceptional work on the conception of a suitable framework for AI policy in India and also talk to her about the many implications of our current understanding of AI systems.
