Crash of Civilization: Episode 2 on the impending dangers of Artificial Intelligence in India

In this video Rajiv Malhotra discusses with Madhu Kishwar the stress-test of India at three levels in the light of Artificial Inteliigence’s impact: sthula sharir (physical), sukshma sharir (psychological) and karan sharir (character/karmic).

This leads the discussion to the following themes:

  1. The economic disruption being faced by India; external;
  2. China-Pak threat combined with internal Breaking India Forces 2.0;
  3. The case of Yogi Adityanath encouraging the hijacking of the extremely precious and sensitive data related to the Kumbh Mela;
  4. The performance of individual Indians in AI;
  5. The abysmal lack of R&D and the obsolete knowledge base in India which prevents the flowering of Make in India project.

Finally, Rajiv deals with the question: Is India for sale?

This prompts a worried Madhu Kishwar to ask, ‘will the book help enemies of India with ideas on India’s vulnerabilities’?

MANUSHI, managed by a non-profit Trust needs Your support so that we continue to remain निडर, निष्पक्ष, न्यायसंगत. This has been possible because we:

  • Never sought goverment patronage, no matter who is in power;
  • Said a firm 'No' to patronage from foreign funding agencies even when offered hefty grants;
  • Have never viewed the India world through the prism of western ideologies;
  • Judge each issue on merit: refused to join durbari each chambers from the time of Manushi's inception;
  • Always based our writing on facts garnered through serious academic research and live interaction with ground reality.

That is why we were able to consistently cut through the intellectual &
political fog create by vested interests.
