For building AI in local Indian languages, ShareChat is looking at tie-ups with IITs and other premier engineering institutions.
Debdoot Mukherjee, Vice-President, AI, ShareChat, told BusinessLine that while building AI in English has an existing framework to work on, when it comes to Indian languages, many aspects are evolving. Take for instance data from local languages. “It is entirely unstructured and, hence, the framework for developing an AI model has no ready reference point. This is unlike Mandarin, which has a reference framework,” he said. ShareChat has already built out Natural Language Processing (NLP) models which involve video, speech and text in languages such as English and Hindi. “Now, an Indianised version of this model is what we are looking at,” said Mukherjee.
