Artificial Intelligence Preparedness Index (AIPI) 

Introduction to AIPI 

  • The Artificial Intelligence Preparedness Index (AIPI) launched by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) evaluates 174 economies globally based on their readiness for AI adoption. 
  • It assesses digital infrastructure, human capital, labor policies, innovation ecosystem, integration of AI, and regulatory frameworks. 

Key Components of AIPI 

  • Digital Infrastructure: Advanced digital infrastructure enhances AI readiness, supporting high scores on the AIPI. 
  • Human Capital: Availability of skilled workforce and educational systems supporting AI skills are critical for higher AIPI ratings. 
  • Labor Policies: Favorable labor policies that encourage innovation and AI adoption contribute positively to AIPI scores. 
  • Innovation Ecosystem: Robust innovation ecosystems foster AI development, influencing countries’ AIPI standings. 
  • Integration and Regulation: Effective integration of AI technologies and supportive regulatory frameworks are pivotal for enhancing AIPI scores. 

AIPI Dashboard Categories 

  • Countries are categorized into Advanced Economy (AE), Emerging Market Economy (EM), and Low-Income Country (LIC) based on their AIPI scores. 
  • Examples of high-ranking countries include Singapore, Denmark, and the United States among Advanced Economies, while India is categorized as an Emerging Market with a score indicating moderate AI readiness. 

India’s Position and Performance 

  • India ranks 72nd on the AIPI with a score of 0.49, reflecting its position as an Emerging Market Economy in AI readiness. 
  • While India performs relatively well among its regional peers, it trails behind countries like China in the AIPI rankings, indicating areas for improvement in AI infrastructure and capabilities. 

Conclusion 

  • The Global INDIAai Summit and the launch of the AIPI by the IMF underscore India’s commitment to fostering AI innovation and readiness on a global scale. 
  • These initiatives not only highlight India’s strategic efforts in AI development but also emphasize the importance of ethical AI frameworks and international collaborations in shaping the future of AI governance and deployment globally.
