“Mark Zuckerberg-CEO and Founder of Facebook and Steve Jobs-Cofounder of Apple Computers are Ankit’s idols, according to ‘Bobble AI (Artificial Intelligence)- the world’s first Conversation Media Platform’ founder Ankit; he, too, left for some reason and succeeded. Out of 120 languages, the Bobble Indic keyboard earned a 4.7 grade. More than 50 million people depend on assistance.”
Bobble AI, a Gurugram-based tech Startup firm, is attempting to make communication more personalized, articulate, and intelligent by incorporating artificial intelligence. Ankit and Rahul Prasad, brothers from Jharkhand’s East Singhbhum district, have established a Rs 500-crore software company on the strength of their abilities, competing with global companies such as Google and Microsoft.
The 30-year-old Ankit and 32-year-old Rahul began web design in 2005, and in 2012, they formed Touch Talent, a software company. Both, however, did not perform as planned.
