2041 SCENARIOS

Computation, Energy and the Planet

SCENARIO ONE

Convergence

Traditional energy – Classical computation

Energy management by small-scale optimisation

Immerse yourself in a future where increasing demands for computation and energy have driven forward the use of broadcast electricity and low-energy novel computing architectures such as memristors and neuromorphic AI.

Download our short ebook which explores in greater depth each scenario and its creation

Designed to help you better understand how emerging technologies will combine, and to answer the question ‘How will we support the increasing demand for computation, and provide enough energy for it, in twenty years’ time?’
