Experts from these establishments will collectively work in the direction of growth of novel computing and quantum supplies, sensors, quantum communication units and programs together with quantum computer systems.
The Indian Institute of Science Education and Research, Pune (IISER) with help from the Department of Science and Technology (DST) has established a Technology Innovation Hub (TIH) on Quantum Technology.
Named I-Hub Quantum Technology Foundation (I-Hub QTF), it should host greater than 20 national-level research institutes — choose IITs, Indian Institute of Science, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Inter University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics, SN Bose National Centre for Basic Sciences, Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research, some IISERs and National Institute of Science Education and Research, amongst others.
Experts from these establishments will collectively work in the direction of growth of novel computing and quantum supplies, sensors, quantum communication units and programs together with quantum computer systems. At least 13 research teams inside IISER, Pune shall be a part of the newly constituted hub.
Under the Interdisciplinary Cyber Physical System (ICPS) Mission, the DST plans to arrange 25 hubs throughout main research establishments in India. Of these, 18 are TIHs and the remaining would perform as Sectoral Application Hubs. Every hub will take care of a site and work to collaborate with establishments or researchers inside that area.
Some of those areas recognized embrace Robotics and Autonomous Systems, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Internet of Things, Advanced Communication Systems, Sensors, Activators and Control, Databanks and Data providers, GIS and Positioning, Biological Cybernetics and Cyber Security for Physical Infrastructure.
