Zettascale computing, the computing power that can compute 10 floating-point operations per second, helps provide useful insights from data in milliseconds. As India strives to be self-reliant beyond the key sectors and the impetus for economic growth, it should also focus on achieving self-sustaining Zettascale calculations. If the last 20 years have been about democratizing technology to give people access to resources and information, then the next 20 years will be computing that can enrich our lives more than we can imagine. It will be about democratization of power.
Democratization of computing power for inclusive development
Data-centric technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), cloud, and 5G are key to meeting the country’s largest human-centric needs today. To solve these challenges on a population scale Computing function It’s far beyond us today. This is where Zettascale computing has immense potential for India. For example, the computing power required to train large AI models is seven times faster than ever before. As a result, India needs to significantly scale up its data center infrastructure.
Some interesting use cases have already emerged, such as the use of AI to detect breast cancer much faster than traditional screening methods. The Government of India is looking for AI-based solutions for environmental protection efforts, traffic management and more. From faster medical diagnostics and better results to smart manufacturing, intelligent retailing and universal education, the age of AI holds the key to both accelerating economic growth and sustainable comprehensive development. Access to advanced computing infrastructure enables the scientific community to build solutions in areas such as weather forecasting. Genome sequencing, And drug discovery.
The geographic size and socio-economic complexity of the subcontinent requires large-scale deployment of solutions to drive true grassroots transformation and progress. To make good use of this information, you need to put the power to use it in the hands of your end users. For example, instead of providing general forecasts and recommendations, solutions that leverage Zettascale computing give farmers real-time intelligence about local conditions such as weather, soil, water usage, and crop type. You can make accurate decisions based on it. Zettascale computing is the key to this new era of comprehensive progress, supported by equitable access to everyone’s information. This extraordinary computing power must be achieved nationwide through a secure and scalable infrastructure setup to be truly effective.
Construction of supercomputing highway
Fortunately, there is a collaborative and collaborative effort among industry, government and academia to reach the independence goal of supercomputing. In addition to strengthening its fiber optic program, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology is working on a new data center policy aimed at initiating investment in localized data center infrastructure. India plans to add at least 28 hyperscale data centers over the next three years.
The country’s greatest advantage in this Zettascale computing roadmap is our deep and diverse talent pool. We have about 8% of the world’s AI talent, which is estimated to be growing many times faster than the rest of the world. Coupled with the vibrant technology ecosystem of R & D centers and deep tech startups, we are willing to take full advantage of our expertise, experience and Zettascale computing opportunities.
The world is on the verge of a data-driven revolution. This has great potential for data-rich countries like India, as they have the opportunity to lead the world in AI innovation for population-scale challenges. Investing in a Zetta-scale computing infrastructure is essential for the next phase of development of the Indian Technology Leadership Journey. Computing power should be seen as a necessity similar to electricity and water, and harnessing the power of zetta-scale computing is important to drive our collective progress as a nation.
