The government has formed a committee to fast-track the implementation of its artificial intelligence (AI) mission.

The panel will be headed by principal scientific advisor K Vijay Raghavan and represented by secretary, department of science and technology, chief executive officer, NITI Aayog and secretary, ministry of electronics and information technology (MeitY).

The committee would aim to resolve differences between the NITI Aayog and MeitY over who will implement the government’s AI mission and has been tasked with rooting out duplication of work between various government arms, while clearly specifying the role of different agencies.

Earlier, the NITI Aayog received clearance from the expenditure finance committee (EFC) for a budget of Rs 70 billion, while MeitY had sent a separate Rs 4 billion proposal to the EFC to set up a national AI programme. Further, MeitY had also announced the setting up of a national AI centre in January, but there has been no clarity on its status.
