In the rapidly evolving landscape of artificial intelligence (AI), the need for robust, forward-thinking regulation has never been more critical. As AI technologies continue to advance at an unprecedented pace, they bring with them both immense opportunities and significant risks. I have been been a vocal advocate for a balanced approach to AI regulation—one that harnesses the transformative potential of AI while safeguarding against its inherent risks, protecting the nascent Indian AI ecosystem.
