AI News, BOOK REVIEW: IBM and IIT Delhi collaborate to advance AI research in India artificial intelligence

TCS – PanIIT Conclave 2019

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are technologies that are poised to transform the way humans will interact with machines, and the role that machines will play in all spheres of human life.

The Conclave will bring together global thought leaders, academics, policy makers and business leaders to confer not only on the immense potential of AI to bring benefits, and the opportunities, but also to dwell on the risks and pitfalls that we would need to be wary about.

Quantum Computing India Key Challenges

India is ideally placed to be a world leader in new quantum technologies but some age old mentality is holding it back.

Here, I argued Quantum Computing is not a complex subject, India should focus on small companies and private institutes to take the advantage of quantum computing boom, rather than big institutes IITs, IISc, TIFR, and others.

Just like in Y2K boom, Hyderabad provided thousands of low cost skilled programmers for the tedious task of trawling through millions of lines of computer code to correct the fault, India should focus on building small-scale-quantum industry.

Quantum computer application areas also include: quantum secure communications, quantum information processing, such as quantum computing, quantum simulation, quantum sensing and metrology and quantum imaging, and are widely believed to offer capabilities that will out-perform existing and future classical technologies.

Hardware of quantum computing needs technologies such as highly stabilized laser systems, magneto-optical traps, cryogenic cooled solid state devices, ion traps and vacuum systems to create, manipulate and then use quantum effects for a number of different purposes.

Much larger numbers of qubits, much lower error rate, much longer coherence, much greater circuit depth are the true challenges for quantum computing hardware.

But research on laser systems, magneto-optical traps, cryogenic cooled solid state devices, ion traps devices can be helpful for future.

However, to make India Quantum Computing Superpower, India must encourage and work hard to engage the best talents, make open on-line competitions, and encourage private startup companies to gain the advantage.
