In two separate developments, mobile unicorn Ola and artificial intelligence startup SarvamAI announced their Large Language Models (LLM) trained to generate Hindi text.

Sarvam released the first Hindi LLM OpenHathi-Hi-v0.1, which is built on Meta's Llama2-7B open source architecture and offers GPT-3.5 performance for Indian languages.

Besides Bhavish Aggarwal, founder, OLA took to X to announce the launch of its first LLM 'Krutrim' slated on December 15. Aggarwal dropped a video of Krutrim generating the invite for the launch event in both English and Hindi.

According to the company they are super excited to release OpenHathi-Hi-v0.1, the first Hindi LLM from our OpenHathi series of models. This model is trained under compute and data constraints to show that they can get GPT-3.5-like performance on Indic languages with a frugal budget.

According to the compay, they are planning to show model works as well as, if not better than GPT-3.5 on various Hindi tasks while maintaining its English performance. Along with standard NLG tasks, we also evaluate on a bunch of non-academic, real-world tasks.

Led by UIDAI veteran Vivek Raghavan and Pratyush Kumar, the 5-month-old Bengaluru-based startup raised $41 million this month. The round was led by Lightspeed Ventures, Peak XV Partners and Khosla Ventures, who are also investors in OpenAI.
