With the help of the sensational AI chatbot ChatGPT and an ambitious national-level program, Bhashini, that aims to create vast crowdsourced datasets with samples of Indian voices in various local languages. WhatsApp may soon make it easier to search for important government programs. However, Bhashini WhatsApp number is not yet released.
A small team at the Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY) called Bhashini is developing a chatbot for WhatsApp that uses data from ChatGPT to return pertinent answers to questions. Additionally, users can ask the chatbot questions using voice notes because they might not always want to or be able to type out their questions in text form, particularly farmers in rural areas.
In principle, a user might just pose a question using voice notes, and ChatGPT would provide a voice-based response. Senior government officials claim that Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft, was shown a model of this bot before he discussed it at the World Economic Forum in Davos last month.
During a demo, the chatbot, which is currently under testing, effortlessly answered a spoken question regarding PM Awas Yojana, the government’s leading affordable housing program. The chatbot was created with consideration for the segments of India’s rural and agrarian population who rely on government programs and subsidies the most.
Another senior government official involved in the initiative noted that because these potential users speak various languages, it is crucial to create a language model that can correctly detect and comprehend them.
