India To Construct a 10,000-GPU Supercomputer For Self-Sufficient AI Advancement

The Indian government, led by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi, has approved a new $1.24 billion investment for the IndiaAI mission. This initiative aims to create an all-Indian AI ecosystem from scratch, bolstering India’s technological prowess and fostering innovation in AI.

Building a Robust Compute Infrastructure

  • Develop a powerful high-performance computing (HPC) system to serve as India’s central AI infrastructure.
  • The HPC system, expected to include 10,000 “or more” GPUs as AI accelerators, will be developed through a public-private partnership to support startups and research organizations.

Enhancing Language Models for Diverse Linguistic Needs

  • The IndiaAI Innovation Centre will develop and deploy indigenous Large Multimodal Models (LMMs) and domain-specific foundational models.
  • These models will cater to India’s diverse linguistic landscape, supporting the country’s 23 official languages and facilitating more inclusive AI applications.

Establishing Local Datasets and Skills Development

  • IndiaAI will establish local datasets through the IndiaAI Datasets Platform, providing access to high-quality databases.
  • The IndiaAI FutureSkills initiative aims to train new skilled workers for the growing AI job market, with new “Data and AI Labs” offering courses on foundational models.

Fostering Startup Ecosystem and Responsible AI

  • IndiaAI Startup Financing program will support startups, fostering the development of the AI private sector and encouraging futuristic AI projects.
  • IndiaAI will focus on developing safe and “responsible” AI initiatives through indigenous software frameworks, government guidelines, and proper guardrails.
