  • About

    Generative AI has become a major trend in the tech world, and following the overwhelming success of our previous one-day workshop, OdiaGenAI and KIIT DU are excited to present an extended three-day workshop.


    This immersive experience is designed to empower participants with the skills and knowledge needed to harness the power of Generative AI within India's diverse linguistic landscape. Our expert-led sessions will cover the fundamentals of Generative AI and Large Language Models (LLMs), with a special focus on Indic languages, including many low-resource languages.


    Whether you're a researcher, developer, or language enthusiast, this workshop offers hands-on experience with cutting-edge tools and technologies to help you create innovative AI-driven solutions. Join us and be part of the future of language technology in the Indic language ecosystem.


    Students, professionals, and anyone interested in learning Generative AI and LLM-based tools and technologies.
