Alright, check this out. So, down in this village in the southwestern part of India, people were reading off all these sentences in their language into an app. It’s called Kannada and it’s all part of this project to make this AI chatbot for Tuberculosis. Now, Kannada is spoken by over 40 million people in India, and it’s one of the official languages in the country. But here’s the thing, a lot of these languages don’t have the same kind of tech support as languages like English or French. That’s a problem because it means that millions of people are missing out on a lot of opportunities. This researcher from Microsoft India named Kalika Bali said that for AI to really work for everyone, it needs to take into account all these different languages, not just the big ones. But here’s the cool part – there’s a tech company called Karya that’s collecting data from all these different languages to help build up these AI models. And the government in India is getting in on it too, they’re using this AI translation system called Bhashini to create these language datasets. It’s pretty wild, man. They’re getting people to contribute sentences in their own language, validate transcriptions, and translate texts. This dude Pushpak Bhattacharyya, who heads up the Computation for Indian Language Technology Lab, says it’s not easy though. There’s all these challenges, especially when it comes to collecting data in lesser-known languages. But they’re working on it, man. They’re pushing hard to make sure that everyone gets access to this kind of technology.
