Good News: Glific Wins Grant from CISCO to Help Your Chatbot Program Unleash the Powers of ChatGPT


AUGUST 10, 2023


We are thrilled to announce that Glific, a revolutionary product for NGOs in the space of education, skilling, providing assistance, support, behavioral nudges to the next billion, has been awarded a grant by CISCO. This milestone not just supports the continuous innovation of Glific’s offerings but also brings new opportunities in reshaping the relationship between non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and their beneficiaries. 

The recent grant support from CISCO will be used to boost educational interactions among the whopping 380K+ total learners – a number that NGOs using Glific have successfully impacted in the 2022-2023 period. With the help of this funding, Glific seeks to productise learnings, maximize behavioral insights from their partner NGOs, build a cross-sharing culture, and collectively learn and grow through distinct experiments in the space of implementing Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered chatbots, voice bots and chatbots to listen and speak in regional languages.

Yes, you read it right as part of their path-breaking approach, Glific is bringing to the table advanced artificial intelligence capabilities. This involves leveraging AI to develop predictive and generative features that will significantly improve interactivity and user experiences. Glific also aims to assist NGOs to leverage AI by developing these features, thereby improving their overall interactivity and user experience. 

Above is the image taken from the latest experiments being done by team from Myna Mahila in efforts towards building a chatbot to increase awareness on menstrual and reproductive health in women in a safe and anonymous manner. This chatbot is responding in Hinglish from a purely English based custom knowledge base of the organisation.

This is paving the way for orgs to start rapidly experimenting with AI models like chatGPT to reduce the burden of content generation and offer tailored experiences to their target audience.

But this is not all! Glific is inviting you to join the collective of NGOs at the forefront of innovating with technology, umm lets call it CISCO / LLM Cohort (we are open for suggestions on a better name, join the club already 🙂
