Hi there, I work in the Internet Policy Unit at The Tony Blair Institute for Global Change.
We are building an index to measure a nation's national computing power, and are seeking a supplier to help us on this (deadline Friday October 21st). The tender is available here (I can also send you the PDF).
This work is specifically focusing on the role compute plays as a key enabling infrastructure of AI and other emerging technologies.
How do you measure such a capability?
This is the core issue.
You can look at the number of supercomputers a nation has (Top500), or even the cost efficiency of broadband (The Economist). But these are all just pieces of the puzzle.
We want to change that, and produce a more comprehensive set of indicators.
With this in mind, the supplier will deliver:
1. A policy report describing the methodology and measurement framework
2. Data visualisations
3. A database of countries with available metrics/indices completed
What are we looking for in a supplier? The following competencies are important for high-quality delivery:
- Knowledge of compute as it relates to AI
- Experience creating measurement frameworks and indices using statistical techniques
- Consulting experts
- Report writing
We want to better articulate the opportunities of compute power today, and to project into the future to illustrate how investment today could lead to national transformation. Apply to this tender (deadline October 21st) and help us do this.
Please contact me here, on Twitter, or via email (email@example.com) if you have any further questions.
