Microsoft to coach 900 lecturers to assist develop quantum computing workforce in India

Tech large Microsoft on Monday stated it’s launching a brand new programme to construct quantum computing abilities and capabilities within the tutorial group in India and can prepare 900 school members from prime Indian institutes.

As a part of this initiative, Microsoft Garage is organising a ‘Train the Trainer’ programme in collaboration with Electronics and ICT Academies at Malaviya National Institute of Technology (MNIT), Jaipur and National Institute of Technology, Patna, a press release stated.

This programme will prepare 900 school members from universities and institutes throughout India via E&ICT Academies at institutes of nationwide significance reminiscent of IIT Kanpur, IIT Guwahati, IIT Roorkee, MNIT Jaipur, NIT Patna, IIIT-D Jabalpur, and NIT Warangal, equipping teachers with the required abilities to start out constructing their quantum future, it added.

Quantum computing applies the properties of quantum physics to course of data. Quantum computer systems will allow new discoveries within the areas of healthcare, power, environmental techniques, good supplies, and past.

Microsoft is bringing the capabilities to develop for this quantum future to the cloud with Azure Quantum.

Azure Quantum is an open cloud ecosystem enabling builders to entry various quantum software program, {hardware}, and options from Microsoft and its companions. It is constructed on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform, and can proceed to adapt to Microsoft’s quickly evolving cloud future.

The quantum coaching program, via the E&ICT Academies, helps an initiative by the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology (MeitY) to boost the abilities of the academicians in imparting subsequent degree technological abilities for future generations.

Key themes that shall be lined embrace an introduction to quantum data, quantum ideas reminiscent of superposition and entanglement, processing of knowledge utilizing qubits and quantum gates, in addition to an introduction to quantum machine studying and quantum programming, the assertion stated.

“India is renowned across the world for its science, technology, engineering, mathematics and computing (STEM+C) workforce, and a tech-capable citizenry.

“Through this initiative in India, we intention to develop abilities in quantum at scale, which has the potential to set off the brand new frontier of innovation, shaping the way forward for the IT business on this a part of the world,” Rajiv Kumar, Managing Director, Microsoft India Development Center, and Corporate Vice President, Enterprise+Devices India, stated.
