QX Lab AI, an innovative Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) company, has announced the launch of Ask QX, making AI accessible to the masses in India. Conceived by Indian-origin founders, Ask QX is claimed to be the world’s inaugural hybrid Generative AI platform with a node-based architecture. The platform features multi-lingual capabilities and is available in over 100 languages, with 12 of these being Indian languages. Due to its comprehensive coverage, the service symbolises a significant step towards democratising AI for the Indian populace.

The AGI service has been released as both a web platform and a mobile app, and has quickly found a niche with an initial user base of more than 8 million. The 12 Indian languages facilitated by the platform encompass Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Marathi, Tamil, Urdu, Gujarati, Kannada, Malayalam, Odia, Punjabi, and Assamese. In addition, Ask QX supports numerous languages spoken worldwide, including French, Arabic, Spanish, and many others.

The novel platform is built on a 30% Large Language Model (LLM) and 70% Neural Network Node Architecture hybrid model. It sets a high bar in language comprehension and user interaction. This technology coupled with forthcoming functionalities like text-to-image, text-to-code and text-to-video, targets a wide variety of AI needs including Neural-based services, suitable for individuals as well as B2B and B2I clients.

Co-Founder and CEO of QX Lab AI, Tilakraj Parmar, shares his delight in unveiling the world's primary hybrid GenAI platform with such extensive linguistic variety. He said, "This innovative platform is strategically designed to democratise access to AI for the Indian populace." Parmar envisages Ask QX as a significant development that will universally enhance AI accessibility and inclusivity in India.

Arjun Prasad, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer at QX Lab AI, said, “Our goal was to provide equitable AI access to the masses. Furthermore, we aimed to have a fully functional platform ready at launch. The debut of Ask QX in 100+ languages, reaching 8 million users already, stands as a testament to our dedication to making a substantial impact.”

Tathagat Prakash, Co-Founder and Chief Scientist at QX Lab AI, also emphasised the system’s advanced security measures and cost-effectiveness. He said, "Our dedication to precision and reliability underscores our promise to deliver an AI ecosystem that can be trusted by users.”

On the advent of Ask QX, renown data centre leader Yotta Infrastructure Solutions LLP formed an Indian infrastructure partnership with QX Lab AI. This move reflects QX Lab AI’s commitment to advancing AI technology globally. The Yotta Infrastructure is predicted to reach a technological procurement landmark by ordering Nvidia AI chips worth $1 billion.
