Bhavish Aggarwal Launches ‘Krutrim’ India’s Own AI; The Internet Has Mixed Reactions

Krutrim Si Designs, the artificial intelligence venture spearheaded by Ola co-founder Bhavish Aggarwal, has officially introduced its pioneering family of multilingual AI models—Krutrim. The term, derived from Sanskrit and meaning “artificial,” positions the company as a notable contender in the competitive realm of advanced AI models.

Comprising two iterations, Krutrim encompasses a base model, aptly named Krutrim, trained on an extensive 2 trillion tokens and unique datasets. Additionally, the more sophisticated Krutrim Pro, a large Text-Speech-Vision model, is slated for an early 2023 launch and promises advanced problem-solving and task execution capabilities. During the launch, the Ola boss remarked that Krutrim will be ‘Indian at heart.’ He presented an AI chatbot powered by Krutrim, drawing parallels to industry counterparts like OpenAI’s ChatGPT and Google’s Bard. Impressively, this chatbot demonstrates proficiency in 22 Indian languages and can generate text in 10 Indian languages, including Marathi, Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and more, marking a substantial advancement in the domain of multilingual AI. Bhavish reiterated how a lot of efforts went into gathering data unique to the Indian context and various cultural settings.

Established in April 2023, Krutrim Si Designs, a collaboration between Aggarwal and Krishnamurthy Venugopala Tenneti, a board member of ANI Technologies Ltd.—the parent company of Ola Cabs and Ola Electric—positions itself as a noteworthy entrant in the ever-evolving landscape of artificial intelligence.
