Big Announcement at IGF Annual Summit 2023: India's New AI Chatbot to Rival ChatGPT
India is causing a stir in the tech world with its upcoming AI chatbot, poised to challenge the mighty ChatGPT from OpenAI. During the India Global Forum Annual Summit, Ashwini Vaishnaw, the Union Minister for Electronics and Information Technology, hinted at a "big announcement" regarding this new chatbot. The highly-anticipated release comes on the heels of OpenAI's impressive record, with its chatbot amassing over 100 million users in its first two months and now welcoming 13 million visitors daily in 2023. With India making a bold move to enter the AI chatbot arena, the competition is sure to be fierce, as tech enthusiasts eagerly await the latest updates and breakthroughs. As India continues to grow as a technology giant, the government is supporting the country's startup and entrepreneurial community amid the recent Silicon Valley Bank collapse. Vaishnaw assured that the government is collaborating with the startup community to ensure that they are not affected by the crisis. Furthermore, India is shifting from being a technology consumer to a technology producer, with companies seeking to partner with Indian startups and entrepreneurs for technology development. Vaishnaw also spoke about India's ambition to lead the way in 6G telecom services, with the government already holding 127 patents related to the technology. Although 6G is still a few years away, India is positioning itself to be at the forefront of its development. The India Global Forum Annual Summit brought together former and current ministers, as well as diplomats and business representatives, to discuss India's growing startup sector community and the opportunities for partnership and growth. With India's determination to lead the way in technology and innovation, it is an exciting time for the country's tech industry and the global market as a whole.
