Indian PM Modi talks AI for public good with Bill Gates

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and philanthropist Bill Gates held a dialogue centred around harnessing the power of artificial intelligence (AI) for the greater good of the public.

The leaders expressed their shared commitment to sectors that hold the potential to enhance the planet and uplift millions worldwide.

The two also discussed DPI, women-led development. Microsoft co-founder Gates also emphasised the lessons learned from India and spreading them across the world.

"It is always inspiring to meet with @narendramodi, and there was a lot to discuss. We talked about AI for public good; DPI; women-led development; innovation in agriculture, health, and climate adaptation; and how we can take lessons from India to the world," Bill Gates said.

Earlier, the philanthropist also met External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar. The two leaders, as they met, also exchanged books on Thursday.

In a social media post, Jaishankar shared a picture of him and Gates posing for a picture with their respective books.

"A good book exchange with @BillGates. And a great conversation," Jaishankar wrote.

Bill Gates, who is on a visit to India, arrived in Odisha's capital, Bhubaneswar, on Tuesday. 

Meanwhile, addressing a public rally in Dhanbad's Sindri in Jharkhand state, PM Modi underlined that the growth rate of 8.4 per cent registered during the financial quarter from October to December 2023 showcases India's growing potential and fast-paced development towards realising the goal of Viksit Bharat.

“India is among the fastest-moving economies in the world... India has performed better than all expectations. The economic growth rate for the quarter of Oct-Dec was 8.4 per cent... For a 'Viksit Bharat', making Jharkhand a developed state is equally important," the Indian Prime Minister said during a visit to unveil projects in the eastern Indian state.
