“During these challenging times, Intel’s top priority is protecting the health and well-being of employees while keeping the business running for our customers and supporting the communities we operate in. I believe technology is crucial in combating COVID-19 and our ability to help save and enrich lives through Intel technology has never been more vital. The need of the hour is to collaborate with the government, academia, research community and the larger ecosystem and work together to develop solutions for testing, treatment and containment of COVID-19,” said Nivruti Rai, Country Head, Intel India and Vice President, Data Platforms Group, Intel Corporation.
Collaboration with the technology ecosystem to combat COVID-19
A team of engineers from Intel India is leveraging Intel solutions and collaborating with the ecosystem to lead high-impact tech initiatives for COVID-19.
- Intel India is working with India’s Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIIT-H) to deploy Intel client and server solutions to help achieve faster and less expensive COVID-19 testing and coronavirus genome sequencing to understand epidemiology and AI-based risk stratification for patients with comorbidities
- Intel is also collaborating with NASSCOM to build an application ecosystem and multi-cloud backend infrastructure to enable population-scale COVID-19 diagnostics, to predict outbreaks and to improve medical care management and administration. An end-to end COVID-19 platform developed by NASSCOM’s taskforce was delivered to the Government of Telangana recently. The platform brings together solutions from multiple technology leaders and delivers more than 100 dashboards, across 30+ government and public datasets, with hundreds of thousands of data points to support the government in fighting this pandemic. Along with NASSCOM and Intel, the project taskforce for the development and delivery of this platform included participation from NASSCOM members and other companies such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Fractal, Infosys, Mapbox, Microsoft, Mindtree, SAP, Sprinklr, and Wipro Limited.
Globally, Intel is said to have committed $50 million towards a pandemic response technology initiative and allocated $10 million in donations to support local communities during this critical time.
