India-based research centre creates Monlam Artificial Intelligence (AI) tool to safeguard Bhutan's Buddhist legacy

| @indiablooms | 27 Nov 2023, 06:01 pm

Monlam Tibetan IT Research Centre in India is using technology perfectly to safeguard Bhutan’s Buddhist legacy.

The Centre has developed Monlam Artificial Intelligence (AI) to safeguard the religious legacy of the Himalayan nation.

Monlam AI encompasses a suite of AI tools designed to preserve, translate, and disseminate Buddhist teachings and scriptures, reports The Bhutan Live.

Monlam AI’s Machine Translation Model stands as a cornerstone of preservation efforts. This tool seamlessly translates ancient Tibetan Buddhist texts into English and other languages, making these invaluable resources accessible to a wider global audience, the news portal reported.

Experts believe the aim of creating the platform is to ensure that Buddhist wisdom continues to resonate with future generations.

The Optical Character Recognition Model further enhances preservation efforts by digitizing and converting physical texts into digital formats. This digitization not only safeguards these precious texts from degradation but also facilitates their storage, organization, and dissemination through online platforms, the news portal reported.

The future of Monlam AI is brimming with possibilities. As AI technology continues to evolve, Monlam AI could expand its capabilities to include AI-powered chatbots that can answer questions about Buddhist teachings, virtual reality experiences that immerse users in Buddhist environments, and AI-generated content that creatively interprets and presents Buddhist concepts, the news portal reported.
