Ola founder Bhavish Aggarwal unveils ‘Krutrim AI’, a new LLM that works in 20 Indian languages

Ola CEO Bhavish Aggarwal today unveiled “Krutrim,” India’s own Artificial Intelligence (AI) model. In a launch event held today in collaboration with Krutrim Si Designs, an AI company which he has co-founded, Aggarwal showcased the capabilities of Krutrim, emphasising its unique features tailored for the Indian context.

Krutrim comes in two classifications: the base Large Language Model (LLM) and the more powerful multi-modal Krutrim Pro, set to be available next quarter. The base model has been trained on an impressive 2 trillion tokens, understanding 22 languages, and generating output in 10 Indian languages. Krutrim Pro, with advanced capabilities, is poised to further elevate AI experiences.

Aggarwal asserted that Krutrim outperforms GPT-4 and Llama models, specifically excelling in Indic performance. The model can engage in real-time coding and voice interactions, addressing the need for AI models grounded in the Indian cultural context.

Built from the ground up, Krutrim reflects an India-centric approach, incorporating local knowledge, languages, and a cost structure tailored to India’s needs. Aggarwal envisions Krutrim as an important player in shaping India’s AI landscape for the next 25 years, stating that AI will redefine economic and cultural paradigms.

The Krutrim website is now live for registrations, with the base LLM becoming available next month. APIs are anticipated in February 2024, while Krutrim Pro is slated for release in the following quarter.
