An innovative technology has been developed in the country that allows users to send e-mails in Indian languages using artificial intelligence. The technology, known as 'Quillpad' can browse the web pages or any documents containing Indian language content and learn that particular language's patterns automatically, according to top officials of Tachyon Technologies, the company which developed it.

"This learning is just one-time and the trained set of patterns can be used by everyone using Quillpad technology," the company said. The software products company was founded by two students, K S Sreeram and Ram Prakash H, in the year 2000.

The two were fresh out of their B Tech course in computer science from IIT Madras. "Quillpad is an innovative technology that enables predictive transliteration," they said. "Anyone who can write their name on the computer can now type directly in the Indian languages (right now in Hindi, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam) with Quillpad."

"Unlike most of today's transliteration systems, which expect users to type adhering to some rigid rules, Quillpad allows one to type in intuitively and in turn, intelligently performs the corresponding transliteration".
