The 10th World Hindi Conference is being organized in Bhopal this year from September 10 to 12 in collaboration with Ministry of External Affairs and Madhya Pradesh Government.

This is the third time when the conference is being held in India. The first World Hindi Conference was organised in Nagpur from 10th to 12th January, 1975.

Lajpat Ahuja, the rector of Makhanlal Chaturvedi National University of Journalism, and the coordinator of the Conference proclaimed with enthusiasm that the exhibition will be showcasing the growing influence of Hindi in the IT sector. Tech industry giants like Google, Microsoft, and Apple will be participating in the event. He further added that these companies will inform the participants how Hindi is turning into a computer language.

The aim of this conference is to promote the use of Hindi language in the field of science and technology, and also explain how Hindi can be incorporated into IT, media, administration and the foreign policy sector.  It would also have a series of paper presenters. The main theme of the conference is “Hindi Jagat: Vistaravamsambhavnai”.

The event will be followed by several Hindi book and magazine releases.

    World Hindi Summit is a sign of self confidence and germination of self respect in Indian system of Governance which is distinctly absent among the 10% Anglophonic Indians who are in fact ruling the country as an appendage of the West. Attention must be diverted to the growing sentiment among non-Hindi speaking communities who dutifully but shamelessly imitate everything Anglo-American but enthusiastically preach – HINDI IMPERIALISM in connivance with their Western Patrons. Summit should address this problem as well.

Using the new “Cleo” skill, Amazon allows users to teach Alexa more about Indian languages and culture by interacting with the voice assistant.

“During each round, Alexa will ask you to say at least five things in your language. She may ask you to say something specific in the chosen language or to just say anything at all,” the company said in a statement.

The process of creating new languages for Alexa benefits data availability, computing power and machine learning, in which systems improve organically as they incorporate more data.

Cleo’s availability in India will help improve Alexa’s language model and help her to gradually speak in local languages, the company added.
