The success of AI-powered Farm Assessment (Khet Score) & Monitoring (Khet Score Now), an AI-led historical farm assessment with live monitoring for early risk identification, which outperformed traditional lending bank scores, was discussed. It was shared that leveraging advanced AI and Machine Learning, Surabhi offers a unique, proprietary muzzle-based cattle identification solution. Dr Shailesh Kumar, Professor at Jio Institute, highlighted that Bharat runs on AI and consumers of AI should be aware of Bharat AI Stack and its use. The importance of platforms like No Code and Low Code, along with dashboards, was also emphasized for understanding data and deciphering its insights.

The second parallel session on the ‘Responsible AI Working Group’ saw participation from Ms Sophie Fallaha, Executive Director of CEIMIA; Mr Michael O’Sullivan, GPAI Project co-lead for Pandemic Resilience and Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Auckland; Shri Amir Banifatemi, GPAI Project co-lead for Scaling Responsible AI Solutions and Co-Founder and Director at AI Commons; Mr Juan David Gutiérrez, GPAI Project co-lead for Sandbox and Associate Professor at Universidad de los Andes; Shri Aditya Mohan, GPAI Project co-lead for the sandbox and National Standards Authority of Ireland; Mr Nicolas Miailhe, GPAI co-lead for RAISE - Founder and President of The Future Society; Mr Lee Tiedrich, GPAI Project co-lead for RAISE - Duke University; Shri Raja Chatila, Professor Emeritus of Artificial Intelligence, Robotics and IT Ethics, Sorbonne University; Ms Catherine Regis, Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Montreal and Mr  Alistair Knott, GPAI Project co-lead for Social Media Governance - University of Victoria.

The necessity of reliable methods for detecting AI-generated text was a key topic, with one speaker emphasizing, "We need more AI to keep AI safe." It was also emphasized that companies producing AI generators must demonstrate reliable detection tools for the content they generate. The panel concluded that creating systematic gender inclusions in the AI ecosystem, establishing repositories of public algorithms, developing a digital ecosystem that empowers communities, and recognizing social media platforms as key vehicles for AI influence on people are essential steps.

Dr. Geeta discussed the development of affordable, portable and radiation-free breast cancer detection methodologies, sharing that a similar initiative was implemented in Punjab, resulting in the treatment of 22 cancer patients. Dr Kiran addressed the problem of identifying eye weakness due to diabetes, emphasizing that AI tools can provide more accurate retinal images for diagnosis. The impactful initiatives like esanjeevani & Ayusham Digital Bharat Mission on public health were also discussed. The panel also touched upon the policy regarding healthcare, emphasizing that it should be centered on lower and middle-income grade countries to bridge the gaps between developed and developing countries.
