The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), is working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to establish a Quantum Computing Applications Lab in India. This will give India’s science and technology fields a huge boost. The new lab will give quantum computing-led projects and development a boost, and there will potentially be new scientific discoveries because of this.
The lab will also provide quantum computing services to members of the government, researchers, scientists, developers, and others. This way, quantum computing will benefit Indian manufacturing, healthcare, aerospace engineering, and agriculture among other sectors. It will also address problems with ongoing quantum research and work with experts from the government, academia, industry, and scientists. These experts will be given access to the lab’s quantum hardware at no cost, and software is accessed through Amazon Braket as well.
This is AWS’ first lab that supports a national government’s mission to drive progress. It will allow the Indian government to better progress in the fields of science, academia, and developing, aligning with state-formed plans. AWS will provide hosting and technical and programmatic support for the Lab.
The MeitY Quantum Computing Applications Lab is poised to help both governmental and scientific parties test quantum technologies and find real-world applications in the perfect environment.
