“I got very interested in people who had discovered something more significant than … intellectual, abstract understanding.” – Steve Jobs
As you may know, in 2013 the European Union’s Future and Emerging Technologies or FET announced its $2.3 billion grant. The mission of the program was to enhance new technological solutions based on graphene. The program aimed to promote high-risk research in the field of high technologies. Believe us! All the expected discoveries will be a breakthrough in Cloud Computing and Internet of Things.
Nokia, which is part of the Graphene Flagship Consortium and soon is going to be owned by Microsoft, was the Company to receive the above-mentioned grant from the FET.
Graphene is a super-material that can actually provide a new approach and value to everything that modern high technologies own these days. Graphene, as compared to silicone (a super-material for electronics), doesn’t possess an “energy gap”, and cannot be turned on/off.
Modern research in the field will inevitably open up new doors for high technology with regard to all spheres of work and life. Very soon we’ll be granted an incredible opportunity to enjoy surprisingly thinner high tech items of unmatched power. This can be true of both super-light conductors and unbelievably powerful world’s processors. The angle of faster processors will mean faster deliverability of data from the Computing and into the Cloud.
