Thread: Interesting robotics/AI startups in India?

  1. #1

    Default Interesting robotics/AI startups in India?

    Sorry, not sure if this is the right place to post this.

    I was wondering if anyone knew of any startups working on robotics or AI that are still alive, and if you could link to their websites, if any.

    Thanks
    Sunayana.

    They are alive and kicking , but 90% are doing workshops . Any specific kind of work you are looking for.

    Well, nothing specific. I'm just trying to connect with technical startups since I will be spending some time in India over the coming months. Most startups I currently know are doing social media stuff that I am not interested in.

    My interests are Speech and language processing, so if anyone is interested in putting speech on a robot let me know

    Cool , we have recently done first prototype of our locux board -

    We were looking for someone who can do voice recognition core on it , would something like that interest you ? We were thinking of something like room automation.

    I am also looking some help on a text to speech project for a device mainly for Blinds and others with disability. If you are based in Bombay...let me know.

    @pratik - You might also look into NLP 5x from sensory . They support TTS out of the box. Not so sure regarding hindi though.

    But linux / android also support it , if its on a processor based module.

    @pratik I'd suggest Festival + Festvox (free software from CMU) for building a TTS in Indian languages (or using one of the pre-existing ones available with Festival) and then using Flite to run the TTS built on embedded devices. It is probably the best available right now in terms of understandability and naturalness.

    Thanks guys for your input...but its similar to what I have found so far. Anything to do with speech requires a bigger processor. The goal I am setting for the device is something that is $15-20. Use a pic+memory+audio - a simple barebone device for mass consumption

    You can use our board locux ... we are trying a < 20 USD price point.

    Anyhow best recommended would be a ASIC like sensory's , they are i think < 5 USD when in bulk.

    Pratik, you could also check out PIC32. I remember seeing some projects on myPIC32.com on devices helping the disabled.

    Just searched and here they are:
    http://mypic32.com/web/guest/contest...rofileID=46951
    http://www.mypic32.com/web/guest/con...rofileID=32956

    Although I think they are no longer under active development.
