“Technology should be accessible to everybody. We all know that technology, especially modern technology, is becoming very expensive. And in many geographies, the tendency is that it gets limited in the hands of a few whether it is big tech or in some cases government control everything,” Vaishnaw said in the Global IndiaAI Summit as reported by Economic Times. 

"A common set of technical and legal frameworks is also available here. Startups, entrepreneurs, academics, and people working on various applications in sectors such as agriculture, medicine, healthcare, and education can use this common platform to accelerate their efforts,” he further stated as per ET.
