Artificial Intelligence in India

India's AI market is growing at a rapid pace. A report by the National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM) stated that artificial intelligence is expected to add $450–500 billion to the country's GDP by 2025, which will account for ten percent of the $5 trillion GDP target.
A joint study by Microsoft and the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) has claimed that the AI market in the country is likely to grow by 20 percent over five years.
Meanwhile, media reports have suggested that 16 percent of the world’s AI talent pool is produced in India, which also has the world’s third-largest startup industry.
As part of the government initiative, India’s think tank NITI Aayog released its National Strategy on AI in 2018 with a focus on economic growth and increasing social inclusion while encouraging dialogue around issues such as privacy and ethics.
It aims to propel the growth of the AI industry in the country through startup support, product and solution development and collaboration with the industry, making India a global leader in AI by ensuring responsible and transformative AI for all.
