BharatGPT’s ‘Hanooman’: Revolutionizing AI communication in India

Discover ‘Hanooman,’ the AI model by BharatGPT backed by Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries, set to revolutionize communication in up to 11 Indian languages.

As technological advancements continue to progress globally, India is also poised to take a significant step forward with the planned launch of its first ChatGPT-style service next month in March. Backed by Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries and top engineering schools in the country, the BharatGPT group is set to introduce its AI model customised for the Indian market.

What is ChatGPT ‘Hanooman’?


The BharatGPT group generated AI model is expected to be named ‘Hanooman.’ This technological development is a collaborative effort involving eight Indian Institutes of Technologies (IITs) and the support from Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio Infocomm and the Government of India.

The BharatGPT group, in conjunction with the eight IITs, provided a sneak peek of the AI model during a technological conference in Mumbai on Tuesday, February 21. The showcased video demonstrated a motorcycle mechanic in southern India interacting with the AI Bot in the Tamil language, a banker engaging with the tool in Hindi language, and a developer in Hyderabad using the tool to write computer code.

In simple words, Hanooman is a series of large language models (LLMs) specially trained to communicate in Indian languages, with the goal of eventually covering all 22 Indian languages. The initial release is set to include the first four models in the Hanooman series, scheduled for launch in March.

The BharatGPT group’s collaboration with the eight IITs and support from Reliance Jio Infocomm and the Government of India underscores the commitment to driving innovation in the Indian AI landscape. By harnessing the power of AI and natural language processing (NLP) technologies, Hanooman aims to bridge the digital divide and enhance access to information and services for millions of Indians.

Impact on Indian Society

The launch of Hanooman is expected to have far-reaching implications for various sectors in India. From improving healthcare services and educational resources in regional languages to enhancing customer service and communication in businesses, the AI model has the potential to revolutionise how Indians interact with technology.
