Ola CEO Bhavish Agarwal’s AI venture: crafting multilingual Mega-Model!

7 months ago

The CEO of Ola, Bhavish Agarwal, has founded an AI startup called Krutrim, which is working on a multilingual Large Language Model (LLM). Once completed, the LLM will be able to generate text in 10 Indian languages. It will be capable of understanding macronic text that blends Hindi and English. The model has been trained on over two trillion tokens and uses a custom tokenizer to understand nuances in Indian languages. The company plans to release a Pro version of the AI model next quarter, which will have enhanced problem-solving and task execution capabilities. Krutrim aims to create novel models beyond LLMs across various sectors and is on a path to develop indigenous data centres and server computing infrastructure. The model is set to be released in January, with a beta version accessible to developers by February.
