Public good infrastructure powered by Indian technologies is applicable globally as well, said Satya Nadella, Microsoft chairman and CEO on Thursday.
Nadella at Microsoft’s Future Ready Summit in Bengaluru said “It has 100 per cent global applicability. The PM’s vision and all the programmes (yojanas) and the India stack have coevolved and created a virtuous cycle that is unlike anything else in the world. I think both these are the biggest contributions that India can make to the world. The idea that there is a digital public good infrastructure is great, but more importantly it is available for the common man to use.”
Nadella, who is on a four-day visit to India, visited Bengaluru to address developers and entrepreneurs. He said there are 100,000 Microsoft Cloud Skills and certified developers. Indian developers comprise the second largest base on GitHub, Microsoft’s cloud-based software platform.
Nadella said in regards to how Open AI has panned out, he said “It’s phenomenal to see what is happening at the foundational models. The fundamental thing is, we are seeing emergent scale effects. In technology it’s all about being able to bet on great teams with clear vision and the ability to back them to the hilt. That is what I saw.”
