In response to a question, Minister of State for Defense Ajay Bhatt stated that 40 projects involving Artificial Intelligence (AI) have already been completed by defense PSUs.

He announced the release of an artificial Intelligence framework and protocols for projects and programs in the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO).

In addition, an AI guideline for each defense PSU has been agreed upon, with 70 defense-specific AI projects identified for development. Out of these projects, 40 projects have been finished, he said.

The government has already established the Defense Artificial Intelligence Council (DAIC), chaired by Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, to provide the required guidance and structural support for the military’s use of AI.

The DAIC was formed on the recommendation of a task force led by N Chandrasekaran, Chairman of Tata Sons, and after consultation with all stakeholders.
