India's Indigenous IT: New Supercomputer to be Built in 2017
New Delhi (Sputnik) May 26, 2016
India will produce a new generation of supercomputers under a national program by 2017. New domestic supercomputers will be created and built under the National Supercomputing Mission in India. The first one will come up by August 2017, according to Ashutosh Sharma, Secretary in the Ministry of Science and Technology. The new supercomputers will be kept in different institutes across the country. "A supercomputer can be used for various purposes like climate modeling, weather forecast, discoveries ... read more
