About me

Abhivardhan is a Technology Law Specialist and an AI Governance Consultant. He is honoured to serve as the Chairperson & Managing Trustee of the Indian Society of Artificial Intelligence and Law and as the Managing Partner at Indic Pacific Legal Research. 

Throughout his journey, he has gained valuable experience in Technology Law & Policy, Artificial Intelligence Governance, International Space Law, Technology & Intellectual Property Law, Digital Competition Law, and Indo-Pacific Studies.

With deep respect for the field, Abhivardhan has been fortunate to contribute to esteemed law, technology, and policy magazines and blogs. His book, "Artificial Intelligence Ethics and International Law: An Introduction" (2nd edition, 2024, originally published in 2019), modestly represents his exploration of the important connection between artificial intelligence and ethical considerations. Emphasizing the significance of an Indic approach to AI Ethics, Abhivardhan aims to bring diverse perspectives on AI and technology law to the table.

Abhivardhan is also the author of India's first privately proposed artificial intelligence regulation, AIACT.IN (currently at Version 3).

Abhivardhan remains humbled by the opportunity to share knowledge through various papers on international technology law. Alongside his consulting and policy advocacy, he has been involved in both authoring and editing books, focusing on public international law and its relationship with artificial intelligence. 

Some of his notable books, reports and research publications also include:
