In the 21st century where the paramount importance to the technology or the area of machine learning, the emergence and development of the artificial intelligence and related system has been in discussion these days. Think of a time when you enter a hospital and you see no doctor instead you see robotics to carry out the treatment. Isn’t that interesting but what if the same has life threatening effects on your body. Before diving deeper into Artificial intelligence and its implication on data privacy it becomes significantly important that we understand what artificial intelligence, what is the greatest power we humans are entrusted with it is the capacity and ability of the human brain to think and understand. So artificial intelligence does the work of carrying out the task that humans can do, they try to replicate the abilities of the human mind but artificially. With Ais as an emerging power, it is important to regulate the Artificial intelligence since we are surrounded with AI and we are depending on AI for the completion of our task in one way or the other. The scariest part of the system is that the computer system uses our stored data in order to ease our work. The Ais algorithm learn from our earlier data’s and most of the time such data is used by the countries to spy on their citizens. This is where the problems or room for negative consequences arise. There is hardly any legislation that deals with such a risky issue. The apex court has itself reiterated that right to privacy is a fundamental right under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. Therefore, it becomes the need of the hour that we understand the problems that are occurring in the global sphere through the use of artificial intelligence and hence it is high time that we need proper framework to ensure that regulations are suggested to prevent future deterioration of the conditions in this emerging field of Artificial intelligence.
