Project on NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING (NLP) OF SANSKRIT USING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI)
For over a decade now, the Academy is carrying on the research in Sanskrit and Allied subjects using Artificial Intelligence (AI) participating in the Technology Development for Indian Language (TDIL) program of Ministry of Information Technology, Govt. of India, New Delhi, in the development of Software Tools related to Natural Language Processing (NLP) of Sanskrit.
While it is hoping that some breakthrough will be made under the ensuing 10th Plan period for injecting higher quantum of grants, it is now seeking some short term relief by way interim ad-hoc release of funds during the current year 2001-2002 (our of the balance or unutilized funds related to 9th plan outlay estimated for higher education project program) to enable the Academy to carry on the most valuable and useful projects related to the NLP of Sanskrit.
As of now, there are a handful of projects which have reached advanced stage of development and need funds only to create additional contents and structuring for use on user-friendly platforms.
Each of these projects needs approx. Rs 10.00 lakhs to bring them out as Viable Commercial Tool in a span of about an year from the date of injecting the said funds. The estimated break up of costs of Rs. 10.00 lakh budget for each is annexed hereto.
Usually, at the end of each 5-year plan period, some funds are likely to remain unutilized and may lapse due to various factors. If small portion of such unutilized funds are allowed to be used for projects as mentioned above the hard work of reputed Institutions of National Importance like ours will go a long way in enabling the institution to deliver the products in time for posterity.
Analysis of break up of cost estimates – proposal for carrying on the project related to NLP of Sanskrit using Artificial Intelligence (AI) – Cost Estimates Rs.10.00 lakhs – Duration – One year.
