What does Krutrim’s 2024 roadmap look like so far?

Krutrim’s broader vision encompasses a full-stack AI computing approach. The company’s LLMs, developed by experts in Bengaluru and San Francisco, will come in two models: the Krutrim base and the more advanced Krutrim Pro. The latter, set for a Q4FY24 release, promises multimodal capabilities, handling text, audio, images, and videos simultaneously.

Training on 2 trillion tokens of data, with a significant focus on the Indian context, Krutrim boasts better performance than many open-source LLMs and even claims to surpass OpenAI’s GPT-4 in Indic language proficiency.

As a separate entity within the Ola Group, Krutrim maintains its independence, not utilizing data from sibling companies. Looking ahead, Krutrim plans to offer its AI models to developers and enterprises, build its own silicon and chips, and develop indigenous data centres and computing infrastructure. Additionally, Ola aims to integrate Krutrim’s technology across its businesses by March 2024, enhancing various operational aspects.
