HaiVE, an on-premise AI Startup, has said that the Tamil Nadu government has accepted its proposal for an AI standards body – Tamil Nadu Artificial Intelligence Alliance. Thiru J. Kumaragurubaran, IAS secretary of Information Technology, Tamil Nadu government, termed HaiVE’s proposal promising.
The startup is tasked to develop the principle framework for the AI standards body, which will be crucial in influencing and enabling the government to police AI’s unchecked adoption. The AI Startup will also work with TN eGovernance for the same. HaiVE has identified some enormous pitfalls in AI adoption, like unethical usage, lack of accountability, generative data concerns, inefficiency and maliciousness. Hence, the company is rightly positioned to work with the government and contribute to a meaningful certification structure for AI in the coming months.
Deepika Loganathan, Co-founder and CEO of HaiVE, said, “Electricity and cooking gas are hugely dangerous items on their own, yet they have contributed significantly to the growth of our country. It is because every aspect of these items, from generation and transport to retail and end-user facilities, are met with a standards structure the government executives created by working with industry insiders and third-party consultants. Similarly, we hope to leverage our wide spectrum of experience working with clients ranging from banks to startups in AI to help the Tamil Nadu government create a standards framework for AI, giving it the respect as an essential but dangerous yet ubiquitous utility of the future.”
HaiVE is a Singapore-headquartered AI company with an R&D team in Tamil Nadu that offers on-premise business-specific tuned AI solutions to clients in Australia and India. The startup is now looking forward to building a similar advisory relationship with the government of Australia as well.
