The book is a collaborative endeavour of an esteemed academician and a dedicated uniformed soldier, shedding light on India’s current position in the dynamic landscape of artificial intelligence (AI). It delves into the heart of the global ‘AI Summer,’ a transformative phenomenon reshaping industries across the globe. It meticulously chronicles the progress made in AI in India over the past five years, emphasizing the pivotal role played by the Government think-tank, the NITI Aayog, in setting the tone for AI initiatives within the country. Furthermore, it examines the collective efforts of government bodies, industry players, academic institutions, and defence organizations in harnessing AI’s potential to fortify national security.

One of the book’s distinctive features is its comparative analysis of India’s AI progress with that of the P-5 nations, including the USA and China, who are currently engaged in fierce competition for AI dominance. In just half a decade since its initial steps into the AI arena, India has managed to ascend to the ranks of the top 50 nations, a remarkable achievement that underscores its growing prominence in the AI landscape. Backed by a wealth of meticulously researched facts and figures, this book provides readers with invaluable insights  into how India is leveraging this disruptive technology to significantly impact military operations and bolster national security. In an era marked by the emergence of the Fifth Generation of Warfare (5GW), and another change in the character of conflict, this book explores AI’s role as a game-changer in safeguarding the nation.

“Artificial Intelligence and National Security” is an indispensable read for think tanks, strategists, and policymakers. It not only addresses the potential benefits of AI for national security but also confronts the ethical concerns surrounding its use. Moreover, the book outlines a roadmap for the development and implementation of crucial AI strategies aimed at ensuring the security and well-being of the nation in a rapidly changing global scenario.
