The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, in cooperation with Amazon Web Services, will establish a quantum computing application laboratory. The laboratory will determine the quantum computing problems faced by the central government, state governments, and research institutions.
♦ Proposals selected from these entities will have access to Amazon Web Services to use Amazon’s computing cloud platform. In addition, it will provide access to simulators and programming tools for free.
♦ Quantum technology is completely based on the principles of quantum physics. In other words, it is based on quantum theory.
♦ In short, it is the behavior of energy and materials at the atomic and subatomic level. This will help achieve information processing beyond the classical world. Conventional computers will process bit by bit. On the other hand, quantum computers will process qubits.
♦ National quantum technology and application tasks will be performed by the Ministry of Science and Technology under the Ministry of Science and Technology.
♦ The focus of this visit is on basic science, technological development, and solving issues related to national priorities.
♦ It will prepare the next generation of technical talents, encourage entrepreneurship and initiate the development of the ecosystem.
♦ The 2020-21 alliance budget has proposed to spend 80 billion rupees to the national quantum technology and application delegation.
