BENGALURU: The Centre For Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), a research and development organisation under the Department of Electronics and Information, is working with Intel to train people to work on the planned supercomputer, which is to be built as part of the National Supercomputing Mission (NSM).

Over the seven-year duration of the mission when it will be in force, 20,000 people need to be trained and so far C-DAC has trained 3,000. It might look at taking help of colleges and top institutions to meet the needs.

China and India were identified by Intel as those with the ability to build a supercomputer, and China has already done that. “India will be there in two years or so,” said Diane M Bryant, Senior V-P, General Manager, Data Centre Group, Intel, at a select media interaction in Bengaluru on Wednesday. Intel said the agreement does not involve building the computer.
