The recruitment process has been initiated in Bengaluru, but a final location has not yet been decided upon. Reliance Jio is seeking a chance to capitalise on the high-tech technologies like AI, Machine Learning and even Blockchain.

This is not the first time that the telco is dipping its feet in new technology like AI, in May also, Reliance Jio had launched an artificial intelligence (AI) based brand engagement platform with the name of ‘JioInteract’. The platform offers video call centres, video catalogue, and virtual showrooms. Here users could ask questions and then obtain appropriate answers.

To develop new use-cases and application, the company has already brought together an engineering team which will work on Blockchain technology.

This step comes as no surprise from Reliance Jio, as the company has always stood at the forefront of technology under Mukesh Ambani’s leadership. In a similar move, Airtel has also recently appointed former NASA executive Santanu Bhattacharya as Chief Data Scientist to hasten its action upon similar technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. As told by the same report, Airtel has strategically chosen Bengaluru as its centre of innovation to make the best use of the young and talented pool of engineers.

First of all Improve your pathetic coverage. Boasting 4G only and giving tons of Data is useless if you have no intention of improving your disastrous coverage.
