It is of little importance at this stage to highlight the importance as well as the need of this technology, which has been labelled as the most pathbreaking development in the past 100 years on the lines of electricity. The core area of … [Read more...] about India’s ‘Unregulated’ Tryst with Artificial Intelligence: Looking Into Future Without A Law?
