India, where the government is on its toes to improve the quality and speed of its economic data, with the help of Artificial Intelligence (AI) can potentially add nearly $90 billion by the year 2025, states a report.
After the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, India saw a spike in the use of AI around 45 percent while other major economies like the US saw 35 per cent, the UK - 23 per cent and Japan - 28 per cent development in this field.
