Satya Nadella on How ChatGPT is Helping Villagers in India

ChatGPT is a powerful AI-driven chatbot that launched last year. It can converse and write readable text on demand based on what it has learned from a huge database of books, articles and other media. At Davos 2023, Satya Nadella, Microsoft CEO said, <i>"In India, one of the things that's very exceptional that's happening is digital public goods that are getting built, for identity, payment, many systems, and one of the digital public goods that's getting built is for language translation. So basically they have an open source project so that anybody building any application in India can translate between any Indian language. So a demo I saw was a rural Indian farmer trying to access some government programme, right? So he just expressed a complex thought in speech in one of the local languages that got translated and interpreted by a bot, and a response came back saying, ‘go to a portal and here is how you’ll access the programme’. He said, ‘look, I'm not going to go to the portal. I want you to do this for me’. And it completed it. And the reason why it was able to complete it was because a developer building it had taken GPT and trained it over all of the Government of India documents and then scaffolded it with the speech recognition software." </i> Watch the video to learn more about what Satya Nadella shared at Davos 2023.
