India’s largest telecommunications company Reliance Jio has announced the launch of its AI platform, Jio Brain, on Tuesday, with the goal of integrating machine learning (ML) capabilities into its telco network.
“Jio Brain integrates machine learning capabilities in the telco network, enterprise network or any industry-specific IT environment, without undergoing network or IT transformation,” said Aayush Bhatnagar, senior vice president of Jio in a LinkedIn post. “This platform has been developed after a research and development effort for two years by hundreds of engineers.”
Jio Brain comes with over 500 REST Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and data APIs for creating machine learning-enabled services. It also offers advanced AI features for images, videos, text, documents, speech, and built-in AI algorithms "as a service".

Bhatnagar added that Jio Brain will help create new 5G services, transform enterprises, optimize networks, and pave the way for the development of 6G, where machine learning is a crucial capability. He invited AI and ML researchers to collaborate with Jio to create value and expand the Jio Brain innovation ecosystem.
Reliance recently announced a partnership with Nvidia to build a large language model tailored to India's diverse linguistic landscape. This collaboration aims to advance AI technologies for various projects, including chatbots, drug discovery, and climate research.
As part of this partnership, Nvidia will supply Reliance Jio, the telecommunications division of Reliance Group, with AI supercomputer technologies, such as CPUs, GPUs, networking solutions, and AI operating systems and frameworks necessary for developing advanced AI models.
Additionally, Reliance Group has partnered with the Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay for the "Bharat GPT" program. This initiative, announced by Akash Ambani, chairman of Reliance Jio, aims to utilise large language models and generative AI to benefit multiple sectors across India.
The Bharat GPT program is an important component of Jio's overarching strategy, known as "Jio 2.0," which focuses on establishing a development ecosystem.
In addition to these initiatives, Jio is also working on its own operating system (OS) specifically designed for televisions. This OS aims to enhance user interaction and engagement on Jio's devices, further strengthening the company's services within its ecosystem.
