NEW DELHI / GUWAHATI: As a part of India’s G20 presidency, the government said on Sunday that the Comptroller and Auditor General of India (CAG) would host discussions on the blue economy and responsible artificial intelligence (AI).
The three-day meeting, which will kick off on Monday, will be held in Guwahati.
According to a statement issued by the government, CAG Girish Chandra Murmu will chair the G-20 Supreme Audit Institutions or G-20 SAI meeting. The delegates from G20 member countries, guest nations and other international organisations would attend the event.
The event is expected to witness massive participation from the G20 SAIs members, including the countries such as Australia, Brazil, Egypt, Indonesia, Oman, the Republic of Korea, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates among others.
"Under the guiding philosophy for India’s presidency of G20, Vasudhaiva Kutumbkam — One Earth, One Family, and One Future, the CAG has proposed the collaboration of SAI20 engagement group on two priority areas — blue economy and responsible AI," the release said.
During the meeting, SAI India will present the concept themes on the blue economy and responsible AI. "There shall be further sharing of experiences by the participant SAIs, including member SAIs and guest SAIs of G20," it said.
While the blue economy is the sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth, responsible AI is a governance framework aimed at what data can be collected and used, and how AI models should be evaluated and deployed.
