The digital revolution and the increasingly widespread use of electronics and artificial intelligence are not only changing individual technologies in an unprecedented way, but also science as a whole and thus our entire society. This development is accompanied by an ever-increasing demand for energy, which contributes significantly to emissions of the harmful greenhouse gas carbon dioxide and thus, paradoxically, in turn slows down the digital revolution.
In his lecture at the TU Ilmenau Citizens' Campus, Prof. Martin Ziegler, Head of the Group of Micro- and Nanoelectronic Systems at the TU Ilmenau, sheds light on the energy consumption of today's information technologies. He makes it clear that current technologies can hardly solve this problem and that new, innovative technologies are needed that respond adequately to the changed requirements - such as neuromorphic electronics, i.e. technical components that, inspired by biology, electronically reproduce biological learning and memory processes and work in a much more energy-saving way. In addition to the problem of energy consumptionFinally, Prof. Ziegler shows what environmentally friendly and secure IT of the future could look like.
