India's road to becoming an Artificial Intelligence superpower will begin with a framework that will help different walks of life in the longer-term. The government is also working with C-DAC to develop a supercomputer to facilitate the AI framework.
“Globally, we are recognised as a country which has a huge AI-skilled workforce. We have a good network of startup companies which are creating products. The only thing they lack is compute capability that they require. So, the government is working on a framework and an ecosystem,” said NeGD CEO Abhishek Singh in an interview with Hindustan Times.
Singh further said that compute facilities are being set up in India and will allow the AI, startups, tech entrepreneurs and researchers to leverage the infrastructure that has been built to run their algorithms and to build “world-class AI products.”
