About India Stack developer conference
India Stack is the name given to the ambitious initiative by the Indian government to develop a single software platform with the goal of bringing the people of the nation online. It is the collective name for a group of free and open artificial intelligences and digital products that will enable large-scale use of identity, data, and payment infrastructure by enterprises, governments, and other organizations.
Despite the fact that the platform is named after India, the government is hopeful that additional nations will jump on board and base their digital infrastructure on the stack.
