Israeli diplomats extended the Republic Day wishes to Indians in several Indian languages underlining strategic partnership, trade and economic relations between the countries.
Israel’s Ambassador to India, Naor Gilon, said in a video released by the Embassy of Israel in India on its official Twitter handle @IsraelinIndia: “Based on the history of our two ancient civilizations, India and Israel share a great strategic partnership. The love and respect between our people go beyond diplomacy. Israel wishes all Indians a very happy Republic Day.” @IsraelinIndia.
On the other hand, Israel has shared a video address in Hindi, highlighting how artificial intelligence (AI) has eased communication in various languages. The video showed Ambassador David Saranga, Head of Digital Diplomacy Bureau in the Foreign Ministry of Israel, speaking on the AI innovation in Hindi.
“Shalom, I have always wanted to communicate with you in Hindi language. Now this is possible due to Israeli artificial intelligence that allows me to speak in any language,” he said in the video dubbed in Hindi with the help of artificial intelligence.
“In 2022, our social media content uploaded in various languages got exposure to two billion people and thousands from across the world joined us. To know more about the innovations by Israeli embassies, follow us on different social media platforms. We’ll be happy to continue this conversation,” he said.
Israel called this their “next AI obsession” and asked users to suggest which languages they should try. Sharing the Hindi video, which was in response to a request by a user, Israel tagged the Indian embassy and asked what it thinks of the Hindi translation. The Indian embassy in Israel responded, “We were in for a surprise.”
The video was also shared with Turkish and Greek translations. Israel thanked a home-based company, D-ID, which helped it with communicating in languages from across the world.
“AI-Diplomacy: We know everyone’s talking about #ChatGPT but we have officially found our next AI obsession. Thanks to Israeli company @D_ID_ we can now communicate with audiences around the world in their native languages,” Israel said.
ChatGPT is a new AI chatbot that has become the latest fad online with several users who tried it posting their conversations on social media.
