Secretary Defence Production Ajay Kumar said the government had decided to introduce AI in all the three forces + as it would be a "big area" considering the requirements of future warfare.
He said a high-powered task force headed by Tata Sons Chairman N Chandrasekaran was finalising the specifics and framework of the project, which would be implemented in a "partnership model" between the armed forces and the private sector.
"It is India's preparation for next generation warfare. This (AI) is where the future is going to be. We need to prepare ourselves for the next generation warfare which will be more and more technology driven, more and more automated and robotised," he told the media.
