RAISE 2020 is a first of its kind, global meeting of minds on AI to drive India's vision and roadmap for social transformation, inclusion and empowerment through responsible AI.

Organised by the Government, the event will witness robust participation from global industry leaders, key opinion makers, government representatives and academia.

It will witness experts like Professor Daniela Rus, Director of Computer Science and AI lab at MIT, USA, Milind Tambe, Director, AI for Social Good at Google Research India, Sandip Patel, Managing Director, IBM India and South Asia, Jonathan Stuart Russel, Computer Scientist, UC Berkeley, and Arunima Sarkar, Lead, AI, World Economic Forum, among others.
