In collaboration with the BharatGPT ecosystem led by IIT Bombay, Seetha Mahalaxmi Healthcare (SML) has introduced 'Hanooman,' a suite of Indic large language models trained across 22 Indian languages.

About Hanooman

  • It is a series of large language models (LLMs) that can respond in 11 Indian languages like Hindi, Tamil, and Marathi, with plans to expand to more than 20 languages.
  • Capabilities: It is a multimodal AI tool, which can generate text, speech, videos and more in multiple Indian languages.
  • The size of these AI models ranges from 1.5 billion to a whopping 40 billion parameters.
  • Applications: It has been designed to work in four fields, including health care, governance, financial services, and education.

What is the BharatGPT ecosystem?

  • It is a research consortium led by IIT Bombay with seven other IITs. It is backed by the Department of Science and Technology, SML and Reliance Jio.

Key facts about Large language models

  • Large language models use deep learning techniques to process large amounts of text.
  • They work by processing vast amounts of text, understanding the structure and meaning, and learning from it.
  • LLMs are ‘trained’ to identify meanings and relationships between words.
  • The greater the amount of training data a model is fed, the smarter it gets at understanding and producing text.
  • The training data is usually large datasets, such as Wikipedia, OpenWebText, and the Common Crawl Corpus.
  • These contain large amounts of text data, which the models use to understand and generate natural language.

Q1) What is Artificial intelligence (AI)?

It is a discipline of computer science that focuses on developing intelligent agents—systems that can reason, learn, and make decisions on their own. AI research has given excellent solutions to a wide range of issues, from gaming to medical diagnostics.
