The Financial Express reports that Eka, the 4th fastest supercomputer in the world, built in Pune by the Tata’s Computation Research Lab (CRL), has begun running pilot projects for various commercial entities. Excerpts:
According to sources close to the development, the main application areas are in aerospace and aerodynamics, automotive design and engineering, academics, animation, weather forecasting and so on
Although the company would use some of these application in house, be it for Tata Motors or Tata Elxsi, much of the revenues would flow in from outside the Tata Group, mostly from abroad.
These would include aircraft design companies like Boeing, Lockheed and Airbus.
