Artificial Intelligence (AI) is fast emerging as a key technological paradigm in different sectors across the globe including India.

Towards understanding the state of AI in India, challenges to the development and adoption of the same, and ethical concerns that arise out of the use of AI - CIS is undertaking research to understand and document  national developments, discourse, and impact (actual and potential) to ethical and regulatory solutions and compare the same against global developments in the space. As part of this, CIS is creating a compendium of reports that dive into the use of AI across sectors including healthcare, manufacturing, governance, and finance.

Each report seeks to map the present state of AI in the respective sector. In doing so, it explores:  Use: What is the present use of AI in the sector? What is the narrative and discourse around AI in the sector? Actors: Who are the key stakeholders involved in the development, implementation​ ​and​ ​regulation​ ​of​ ​AI​ ​in​ ​the sector?  Impact: What is the potential and existing impact of AI in the sector?  Regulation: What are the challenges faced in policy making around AI in the sector?

The reports are as follows:
