Defence Minister of India, Rajnath Singh, said on Monday that Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and big data technologies would form an essential part of the armed forces. According to reports published by TOI, the Defence Minister, while addressing a roundtable of envoys of over 80 nations to notified the participating ambassadors, highlighted the potential that blockchain and AI hold in defense operations.

In his address, Singh appeared under no illusion about India’s plans to access innovation as the global industry evolves. He said that with the rickety character of warfare in the age of information, the challenge is not only to prepare for contingencies but also to repel threats from multiple sources & simultaneously possess the ability to respond proactively when needed.

India plans to hold its annual defense conference DefExpo 2020 in February.

Despite holding a cold shoulder against cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, India has joined the list of countries taking an appreciably different stand on blockchain technology. The ban on cryptocurrency in India has already caused havoc for police who themselves have not been able to transfer seized crypto funds as a part of law enforcement.
