PM Modi calls for global regulation of AI

New Delhi, Nov 22 (PTI) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday called for global regulation of artificial intelligence saying there were concerns about the negative use of the emerging technology.

'There are growing concerns across the world on the negative use of AI. India's thinking is clear, we have to work together on global regulation of AI,' Modi said addressing the virtual summit of Leaders of G20 countries.

'We must understand the dangers posed by deepfakes to society and individuals and move forward,' Modi said.

Earlier this month, interacting with journalists at BJP's 'Diwali Milan' programme, Modi had voiced concern over the issue of deepfakes.

'I watched my deepfake video in which I'm doing garba. But the reality is that I have not done garba after my school life. Someone made my deepfake video,' the prime minister said.

However, a Mumbai-based businessman, who is a look-alike of the prime minister claimed that the video in question featured him playing garba and was not a deepfake of the prime minister.

Deepfake videos are synthetic media in which a person in an existing image or video is replaced with someone else's likeness. PTI SKU CK
