Several Members of Parliament have expressed their concerns and called for the implementation of legislation to govern the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the country.

AI tools are software applications that utilise algorithms based on artificial intelligence to perform specific tasks and address various challenges.

These tools have wide-ranging applications in industries such as healthcare, finance, marketing, and education. They contribute to task automation, data analysis, and improved decision-making capabilities.
