Keynote Session by Dr. Pavan Duggal, Advocate, Supreme Court of India, (Among Top 4 Cyber Lawyers Around the World)

He said, “Generative AI and cybersecurity are different ball games altogether. A significant advantage in terms of bolstering cybersecurity is at least you know where the vulnerabilities are so that you can actually go ahead and block them through robust cybersecurity tools. But the problem is there are two kinds of AI systems one is autonomous and another is semi-autonomous either way you are ultimately dealing with a black box.
Dr. Pavan further added, "Generative AI platforms can steal information that is the reason, China has come up with a new law on 15th August 2023 called the interim measures on Generative AI where they audit Generative AI platforms for the purposes of findings. You can't predict how AI is going to actually function. Everybody knows AI is biased if you look at all these platforms, they have been all trained on Western data. So, the bias exists left right, and centre.”
