Algorithms and Systems for Energy Efficient Computing

Algorithms and Systems for Energy Efficient Computing is a joint Grand Challenge between the Energy@Cambridge and Big Data Strategic Research Initiatives. The ICT industry has proved a major stimulus for world-wide economic growth over the last two decades, but this has come at a cost in terms of growing energy demand.  Increased energy efficiency is required, not just for environmental reasons, but to exploit opportunities using Big Data concepts. This Grand Challenge focuses specifically on: energy efficiency algorithms; novel energy-efficient architectures for Big Data challenges; and energy-efficient system design, data management and programming models, with strong links to the Energy@Cambridge Grand Challenge in Materials for Energy Efficient ICT.
