IIT Mandi, IIT Guwahati and IIT Gandhinagar signs MoU with C-DAC to establish supercomputing technology


New Delhi :

Indian Institute of Technology Mandi (IIT Mandi), Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati (IIT Guwahati) and Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (IIT Gandhinagar) has signed an MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with C- DAC (Centre for Development of Advanced Computing) to establish supercomputing technology.

The MoU has been signed for a period of five years –
The Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC) is an Indian autonomous scientific society, operating under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. According to a release by IIT Guwahati, the MoU has been signed for a period of five years. This system will consist of 10 master/service nodes, 107 CPU only compute nodes, 10 GPU nodes and 39 High Memory CPU only compute nodes.

Supercomputer is commonly measured in floating-point –
A supercomputer is a computer with a high level of performance as compared to a general-purpose computer. The performance of a supercomputer is commonly measured in floating-point operations per second instead of million instructions per second. Since 2017, there are supercomputers which can perform over 10 FLOPS.

Instabilities and turbulence in thermal convection and MHD
Supercooled liquid and glasses
Reactivity of high-valent metal intermediates
Computational study of polymer-composites, membranes, polyelectrolytes, granular flows
NLP, clinical text mining, Machine Learning and its application in computational biology, Deep Learning
Computational Social Systems areas of research.

Biology and detonation simulations –
The supercomputers will play an important role in the field of scientific and engineering applications such as quantum mechanics, climate research, oil and gas exploration, molecular modelling, weather forecasting, spacecraft aerodynamics, computational systems biology and detonation simulations including the handling of large databases using Artificial intelligence models.

NIT Warangal graduates launches E-Commerce platform for weavers


New Delhi :

National Institute of Technology (NIT) Warangal graduates have launched an E-Commerce platform for the weavers which will help them to sell their products directly to costumers. This E-Commerce platform which is named as ‘PickmyCloth’ will eliminate middlemen and will help Indian weavers maximize their revenue.

Ram Kalyan, the Co-Founder said that the platform enables weavers to sell their products directly to the customers. It thus helps bridge the gap between the two. Pickmycloth eradicates the need of middlemen, he added.

Newly launched Pickmycloth e-Commerce platform –
While speaking to ANI about the newly launched Pickmycloth e-Commerce platform, Kalyan said that as soon as the order is placed, the weaver gets a notification. After this, the weaver packs the product, labels it and then the product is delivered to the customer. He further informed that over 700 weavers have been listed on the platform, out of which 400 weavers are active.

Selling the product directly to the costumers –
This will be a boon in this sector as the elimination of middlemen will save the business weavers form extra expenditure of their revenue on selling. Selling the product directly to the costumers will build a different trust and bond between business weavers and their costumers. Hence it will help in the maximization of their revenue.

Education Minister tweeted –
Further for the same, Education Minister tweeted appreciating the idea and innovation of these NIT graduates. “.@warangal_nit has launched an e-commerce platform, ‘PickmyCloth’ to help weavers sell their products directly to customers. This will eliminate middlemen & help Indian weavers maximise their revenue.

Vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat and the innovation –
Great step for making Indian weavers #Aatmanirbhar!”, said Dr. Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank’, Education Minister. Hence, the vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat and the innovation under this missions are going great when such renowned institutes are focussing on Local for Vocal.
