Information Technology Key Techno-Economic Driver of 21 st Century Shri Rajeeva Ratna Shah Secretary Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion Ministry of Commerce & Industry Government of India
The Broadening Sphere of Information Technology INFORMATION DATA KNOWLEDGE Cognition Computation Communication
Old Economy Capitalist Society (Legacy System) New Economy Information Society (Knowledge Society) Core: Competition is the key since capital is a limited and scarce resource Core: Collaboration and sharing is the key since knowledge is inexhaustible Capital diminishes with sharing Knowledge increases with sharing Capital investments are one time and subject to low obsolescence Knowledge investments need continuous up-gradation and have high obsolescence

SUPERCOMPUTING Advanced Computing High Performance Computing Cluster Computing Parallel Processing Vector Processing Synonymous to Technologies which help in achieving high computational and storage capability for Mission Critical & Grand Challenge problems in Scientific & Engineering and now in Business computing domains.
High Performance Computing (HPC) Key Technology for Self- reliance India Entered in Late 80s – Due to Export Control Significant Developments made since late 80s Strategic and Key Economic Sectoral Applications

Applications of Supercomputing Bio technology & bio computation –Molecular Modeling –Genomic Sequencing Nano technology & nano computation Atmospherics & Oceanics Weather Forcasting Climate modeling Computational Fluid dynamics for Space Science Applications Seismic Data Processing Structural Mechanics
Future Developments IGrid – A Project to Link 8 HPC Sites Providing 10 Teraflops of Computing Power and Petabytes of Storage Computational Grids – Connecting Number of HPC Sites
Applications of Biotechnology Agricultural Biotech New crop research- transgenic crops Bio fertilizers Bio – pest control Bio – resource Development i.e. Bio-Diversity Parks Animal Biotech Vaccines for animals Acqua – culture/marine biotech Seri - biotech Medical Biotech New drug discovery- Pharmaceutical biotech Diagnostics Applications Therapeutic Applications Prophylactic biotech
Bio-informatics as a gateway to New Drug Discovery Bio-informatics has been defined as the discipline that generates computational tools, databases, methods & procedures to support genomic and post genomic research. Bio- informatics has been also described as a graceful blending of computer science and bio- technology. Bio-technology per se is experimentation in-vivo (in real life) and in-vitro (in test tubes); bio-informatics carries the experimentation a step further and makes it in- silico (in silicon / micro chip).
Stupendous size of Genomic Data Genome sequencing taken up for 100 organisms Human Genome has 3.2 billion pairs of DNA sequences Data 5000 DNA sequences or 2 million nucleotides/day Refinement, review, reclassification and annotation of the above data Information explosion a challenge to Knowledge Management
Super computational support is required for numerous functions involved in post genomic R&D in-silico-computation and in-silico simulation In silico - drug target identification In silico - drug design (pharmaco – genomics) In silico - toxicity testing In silico modelling
The experimental (left) and computational (right) hierarchies will increasingly become codependent as the research community models greater biological complexity
