Screengrab from the video

A video showing Israeli diplomat David Saranga, Head of Digital Diplomacy Bureau in the Foreign Ministry of Israel, using artificial intelligence (AI) to speak in fluent Hindi exhibits a remarkable breakthrough in the new technology.

In the video Saranga says: “Shalom, I have always wanted to communicate with you in Hindi. 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 explained.

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 replied:  “We were in for a surprise.”

“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,” the Israel statement said.

They referred to ChatGPT, which is a large language model chatbot developed by San Francisco-based non-profit artificial intelligence company OpenAI. It has the remarkable ability to interact in conversational form and provide answers to questions just like a human.
