New Delhi: OpenAI CEO Sam Altman met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and discussed how India can benefit from Artificial Intelligence (AI) and framing global regulations for the technology.

Altman shared a photograph from his meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his India visit.

“Great conversation with @narendramodi discussing India's incredible tech ecosystem and how the country can benefit from AI. Really enjoyed all my meetings with people in the @PMOIndia,” he tweeted with the picture.

Earlier Altman had said that the meeting with PM Modi was great and he was enthusiastic about AI. Altman said he gave interesting answers to the question about India’s early adoption of ChatGPT.

“It was great. It was really fun. He was so enthusiastic, really thoughtful about AI, and the benefits of it. We asked why India has embraced ChatGPT so much and so early. It’s really been fun for us to watch. He had great answers about that,” he revealed at the Digital India Dialogues.

Altman said he discussed with PM Modi about framing global regulations for artificial intelligence and working with stakeholders on using the technology for education with PM Modi.

“We talked about the opportunities in front for the country, what the country should do, also the need to think about global regulation to make sure we prevent some of the downsides from happening — but it was a great hour,” the OpenAI CEO said.

Altman’s company has created ChatGPT, which has triggered debate across the world over the negative impact of the uncontrolled use of AI, especially on students.

He said OpenAI is looking to fund Indian startups and has held some discussions on it.

"We were always amazed by the quality of Indian startups. The energy we are seeing in Indian startups, we are looking to fund them... We had some conversations yesterday on funding startups in India," Altman said.

His visit to India was part of a world tour and countries like UAE, Israel, Jordon, Qatar and South Korea are on his list this week.
