Amazon Web Services Public Sector Symposium 2023 - Cloud Computing For the Future
  • The AWS Public Sector Symposium talked about cloud computing in public sectors
  • It featured important announcements including collaboration with ISRO
  • AWS has also partnered with CCMB

Amazon Web Services Public Sector Symposium 2023 that took place in September saw a series of announcements by the Cloud computing behemoth. One of the largest service providers in the world, AWS has been actively collaborating in the public sector space in India. The event last month reiterated the established partnerships along with a string of new announcements. But before that let’s understand what is cloud computing?

Cloud Computing for laymen
Imagine enjoying the benefits of having a high end personal computer that can handle Terabytes of data in seconds. Now make it intangible, and completely based on a server network. That essentially is cloud computing. It is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage, and process data, rather than a local server or a personal computer.


Amazon Web Services does just that, but on a massive scale, hence the collaborations we are seeing in the public sector.

AWS & ISRO
AWS has announced a collaboration with ISRO and Indian National Space Promotion and Authorization Center (IN-SPACe) to accelerate India’s space-tech growth. The collaboration will see space start-ups get access to new age cloud computing services. The organizations will work together to train students in AI, ML, analytics and security.

AWS & Center for Cellular and Molecular Biology
CCMB is also using AWS cloud computing services to manage its work. The core focus of this collaboration is to accelerate the growth of genome sequencing research projects. According to reports the progress is significant with the reduction of research analysis by 98%.

AWS & AI
In a collaboration with ConveGenius AWS has also developed a chatbot dubbed the SwiftChat. It is a conversational artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot platform for government schools and low-free private schools built on AWS. We will be coming out with a video with it very soon.
