The purpose of this paper is to outline and compare current Indian and European strategies and approaches towards the development and regulation of Artificial Intelligence (AI). This is intended to highlight points of convergence that could be entry points for dialogue between civil society and/or regulatory authorities in the two jurisdictions. As matters stand today, norms underlying the development of AI are still being developed, especially at the international or multilateral level. Such norms will invariably embed the underlying values of different states and jurisdictions. While neither India nor Europe are currently the leaders in AI innovation – China and the US dominate patents in this field – they are two of the largest potential markets for such technologies. Questions of whether control of AI and related fields lies with states, producers or consumers are currently in flux.
