Chennai, Apr 28 (KNN)
An advanced research facility at the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT-M) was inaugurated by Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Minister of State for Electronics and Information Technology, Skill Development and Entrepreneurship on April 27.
The Veena and Pratap Subrahmanyam Centre for Digital Intelligence, Security Hardware and Architecture (V&PS - CDISHA), was inaugurated in the presence of Prof. V. Kamakoti, Director of IIT Madras, faculty, and researchers.
As per reports, SHAKTI, an indigenous microprocessor developed by IIT Madras, will be used by the centre to carry out a variety of cutting-edge research projects, including the creation of a new class of computers that can accommodate the latency and power demands of AI applications.
Addressing the occasion, Chandrasekhar said“We are living in extremely interesting times for technology space and in the next five years, centres of gravity will be rebuilt around newer geopolitics and newer talent pools for which New India is strongly positioned.”
Minister said the three trends that are shaping the future of the world economy are acceleration of digitalisation of the world at a blistering pace, the need increasingly for countries and enterprises to have a network or coalition of trusted sources of technology, safe and trusted partners in technology solution, devices and products and thirdly having more and more digital talent that is in demand all around the world.
IIT Madras Director Prof. V. Kamakoti emphasised the significance of this Research Facility, noting that it arrived just in time for India to launch its Semiconductor Mission and begin the process of setting up fabrication facilities.
The establishment of this facility is a fundamental step that will foster a strong university-industry-government relationship.
