The challenge: to develop computing approaches that promise a significant reduction in resource consumption in terms of energy, time or space, or to address issues that have not been solvable to date.
New Computing Concepts
Hello people with radical new ideas!
We need breakthrough innovations to develop new, resource-saving computer concepts. We need bold ideas. We need you.
But this vision of a connected world currently comes at a high price. If global energy consumption for computing and communications increases at the same rate as it has been, it will take up the entire, global capacity for energy production as early as 2040. Energy consumption has been falling for a long time - because chip structures have become smaller and smaller. But this is where developments are now reaching their physical limits.
In order to implement our visions for the future - from autonomous driving to computer-aided drug development to intelligent control of countless renewable energy sources - fundamentally new computing concepts must therefore be found.
Our central concern as SPRIND is to bring ideas with the potential for a breakthrough innovation to market for the benefit of all of us. That is why SPRIND continues to support projects with disruptive innovation potential even after the Challenge has ended.
