How a ChatGPT-based chatbot can help rural India?

News: Bhashini, a small team at the Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY), is building a WhatsApp-based chatbot that relies on information generated by ChatGPT to return appropriate responses to queries.

How will Chatbot work?
 In essence, a user could simply ask a question using voice notes, and receive a voice-based response generated by ChatGPT.
 The chatbot has been developing with the view of India’s rural and agrarian population that most depend on government schemes and subsidies. These potential users speak a wide range of languages, which makes it important to build a language model that can successfully identify and understand them.
 It will help numerous farmers in India who may not be familiar with typing on smartphones.
 The ChatGPT-powered WhatsApp chatbot will support 12 languages, including English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Bengali, Kannada, Odia, and Assamese.
 The majority of those who will use this chatbot would not know English, for which the Government's Bhasha Daan Initiative will be used.
 Bhasha Daan is an initiative to crowdsource language inputs for multiple Indian languages as part of Project BHASHINI. It calls upon citizens to help build an open repository of data to digitally enrich his/her own language.

What are concerns associated with such models?
 Responses of ChatGPT, Google’s Bard may not always be accurate.
 Last week, when Google unveiled Bard, its competitor to ChatGPT, the bot made a factual error about the James Webb Space Telescope. The company’s shares dropped by $100 billion after the mistake was spotted.
 In its current testing phase, the WhatsApp chatbot can only respond to simple queries about government schemes, etc. This is primarily due to the current limitation of ChatGPT itself the fact that it cannot access information from the Internet in real time.
 ChatGPT’s language model was trained on a dataset that only includes information until 2021. However, this is set to change.
