Consultations and Engagements
SPI conducts focused policy discussions, symposia, policy roundtables, workshops and webinars, involving relevant experts, stakeholders from the academia, government and the industry. The idea of having such engaged consultations is to discuss the potential opportunities at length which could be leveraged for development purpose or the challenges that have to be dealt with in the field of science and technology. These discussions have also led to crystallization of a possible roadmap or a set of policy suggestions for future; those which could be useful for the policymakers as a ready reference, while formulating or implementing strategies, plans and policies. Some of the consultations and engagements which have already taken place are in the areas of COVID-19 pandemic, artificial intelligence, blockchain technology.
The workshop was structured to foster discussions on six primary sub-themes, namely, Core AI, AI in the education sector, in healthcare, for supply-chain management, as a social good and its policy dimensions in the context of an emerging economy, India.
