For 30 years, the EU’s Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme encouraged researchers from different disciplines to work together to convert crazy scientific ideas into proofs of concept, laying the foundations for radically new technologies. Now, the FET programme will be integrated into the new European Innovation Council and will help research to become industrial applications and systems more quickly.
With data centres consuming ever-increasing amounts of energy, the search is on for less profligate processing hardware. An EU-funded project has devised a tool for the rapid creation of customised and energy-efficient computing engines.
Cloud computing has nothing to do with clouds. All that computing power and storage, now so easily accessible, resides in a growing network of earthbound but power-hungry data centres. By some estimates, the electric power consumed by these centres already exceeds that of a typical medium-sized country and is growing fast.
