MediaNama invites you to apply for a curated #NAMAindic open house discussion on the “Future of Indic Languages”, hosted in partnership with Google. The session, which has been rescheduled from December, will be held at India Habitat Centre in Delhi, at 01:00 pm on the 18th of January 2017.
With the advent of 4G, and Hindi and one Indic languages mandated for handsets, how will things change for content and services on Indic languages? Will advertising grow for Indic language publishers? Will more content be created in Indic languages? What challenges do Indian apps and ecommerce companies face while introducing an Indic language interface? Demonetization has created a need for greater adoption of Indic languages by technology companies.
We aim to bring all major stakeholders to the discussion table to discuss the future of Indic languages in India.
The discussion will broadly cover the following issues:
01 The need for Indic languages and the impact of 4G on Indic language data consumption
02 Growth in Indic language consumption over the past two years: what changed?
03 IDNs and their role in connecting the next billion customers to web-based services
04 Acceptance of Indic language email addresses by applications and web-based services
05 Impact of regulatory changes for Indic languages
06 How are publishers driving discovery of Indic language content, and what they need
07 What advertisers want from Indic languages, and the difference between web and print for Indic language advertising.
08 What keeps ecommerce apps from going Indic?
09 Indic language operating systems, and whether they help
10 Handset manufacturers and Indic languages
