The official launch of the AI Task Force (AI-TF) by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s U.S.-India Business Council (USIBC) represents a pivotal move to align U.S. and Indian efforts in advancing artificial intelligence (AI) leadership.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (AI Reporter/News): The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s U.S.-India Business Council (USIBC) has officially launched its Artificial Intelligence Task Force (AI-TF), marking a crucial initiative to synchronize U.S. and Indian leadership efforts in the field of artificial intelligence (AI).

Under the auspices of USIBC, the AI-TF will advance AI concepts and principles, drive multistakeholder processes, and promote the development and commercialization of AI technologies. The AI-TF builds on the  Chamber of Commerce’s AI principles and endorsement of the OECD’s recommendations on AI.  

As we embark on this transformative journey with the establishment of the AI-TF under USIBC’s leadership, our strategic focus is clear. The AI-TF is a game-changer, especially needed amid the rapidly evolving landscape of artificial intelligence.”

“Through this initiative, we seek to harness the immense potential of AI, propelling competitiveness in both U.S. and Indian economies and our citizen-led societies. Together, we look forward to shaping a future where AI is a catalyst for progress, bringing forth advancements that uphold our shared values and democratic principles and drives economic prosperity for both our great democracies,” he added.

“Collaboration is critical to ensure communities have access to the solutions they need to address water challenges,” said Matthew Pine, Xylem president and CEO.

“This collaboration is why Xylem launched the Reservoir Center for Water Solutions alongside water sector leaders, and why we were honored to gather Director Panchanathan and the U.S.-India Business Council to announce the creation of the AI Task Force.”
