Tamil Nadu, one of the Indian states is currently working on a state-level policy for blockchain and artificial intelligence (AI). According to the report by The Times of India mentioned that Tamil Nadu is working on separate policies for blockchain and AI which could be released in the next 10 days.
Tamil Nadu’s blockchain and AI policies are expected to establish ground rules on how the state government can apply the emerging technologies for service delivery and solving governance issues.
Santosh Misra, CEO of the state’s e-Governance Agency said:
“We are working on separate policies on blockchain and AI. The AI policy is going to be perhaps the world’s first policy addressing safe and ethical use of AI […] No state or country has announced a standalone policy to address the safety and ethics associated with AI, and we have no precedence for it.”
Recently, the Kerala Blockchain Academy (KBA), an initiative under the Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management (IIITM) partnered with R3. According to the reports, the institute has already designed a developer certification program on the firm’s Corda blockchain. The program is meant for banking and technology professionals.
The report mentions that KBA is going to be the first government institution in India that is offering a Corda blockchain development program. The initiative also provides training on technologies such as Hyperledger and Ethereum (ETH).
