Reliance and Nvidia partner to develop a large AI language model for India

Reliance and Nvidia

Reliance and Nvidia – The firms launched a partnership on Friday to establish a big language model for artificial intelligence based on regional Indian languages, led by Mukesh Ambani’s oil-to-telecoms behemoth Reliance Industries Ltd.

“Large language models” are natural language processing systems that can answer questions or generate new text after being trained on enormous amounts of material. 

Nvidia and Reliance Industries announced a collaboration on Friday to develop India’s own foundation large language model trained on the nation’s diverse languages and tailored for generative AI applications to serve the world’s most populous nation,” said the US chipmaker in a statement. 

Nvidia will contribute the project’s computer capacity, while Reliance will concentrate on developing AI apps such as a local language app that can communicate with farmers to deliver weather information and crop prices, according to Nvidia. AI can assist in providing professional diagnosis of medical symptoms and imaging scans on a large scale where doctors may not be instantly available.  

The companies will collaborate to construct AI infrastructure that is orders of magnitude more powerful than India’s fastest supercomputer today. NVIDIA will provide access to the most sophisticated NVIDIA® GH200 Grace Hopper Superchip as well as NVIDIA DGXTM Cloud, a cloud-based AI supercomputing service. The GH200 represents a fundamental revolution in computer architecture, offering excellent performance as well as huge memory bandwidth.

The AI infrastructure will be housed in AI-ready computing data centers with a capacity of 2,000 MW. Jio will supervise execution and implementation, as it has significant offerings and experience in mobile telephony, 5G spectrum, fiber networks, and other areas. 

Interestingly, the alliance was revealed just days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with Jensen Huang, CEO of American software firm Nvidia, and they spoke at length about India’s ”huge potential” in the realm of artificial intelligence. 

”Had a wonderful meeting with Mr. Jensen Huang, the CEO of @nvidia,” Modi wrote on X. We spoke at length about India’s vast potential in the field of artificial intelligence.

”Mr. Jensen Huang was grateful of the gains India has made in this field and was equally optimistic about India’s young youth,” the Prime Minister added. 

As India progresses from a country of data proliferation to the creation of technology infrastructure for widespread and accelerated growth, computing and technology supercenters like the one we envision with Nvidia will provide catalytic growth, just as Jio did for our nation’s digital march,” said Mukesh Ambani, chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries. “I am thrilled with our collaboration with Nvidia and look forward to a fruitful journey together.”  

“At Jio, we are committed to fueling India’s technology renaissance by democratising access to cutting-edge technologies, and our collaboration with Nvidia is a significant step in this direction,” said Akash Ambani, chairman of Reliance Jio Infocomm. “Together, we will build a cutting-edge AI cloud infrastructure that is secure, sustainable, and deeply relevant across India, accelerating innovation.”
