Are you an open source trailbraizer? Build a project licensed under the OPNL license tackling a complex innovation track.
In the vast exploration of STEM, there are certain limitations and constraints in regards to time. These three challenges are centred around solving the world’s energy crisis, solving the world’s resources problem, and reaching new heights in space exploration lesser explored.
Track #1 Energy Extraction from Black Holes
Currently, one of the biggest problems in relation to energy sustainability is harnessing the power of nuclear fusion. For the past many years myself, The Seeker have been wondering what would happen if they could extract energy from black holes, and where we as a civilization could be? If the closest black hole may be a daunting 1000 light-years away, and the closest known supermassive blackhole may be 25,000 light-years away, Sagittarius A, how do we get to where we need to go? The fastest answer to solve this outside of accelerated aeronautical development is the experimentation of self-contained microscopic blackholes.
Track #2 Oceanic Colonization: Smart Underwater Tech
Stark Drones has some underwater wireless networking and telemetry solutions. A challenge in regards to the environment and our limited allocation of resources. The ocean is perhaps one of our more abundant resources in the foreseeable future. Not only is harnessing the full power of our ocean likely important for this civilization, but these same types of technologies may be used when we colonize other planets later on.
Track #3 Astronomic Radiosonic Analysis and Transcription Pipelines
Have you wondered what is going on in outerspace? Many people have contemplated that we aren’t the only intelligent planetary species in this universe. The idea of other terrestrial beings seem more and more likely. With programs such as the SETI Institute which I have been a fan of for many years, or programs like Zooniverse and the CHIME Experiment, we are exploring lots of uncharted territory. Outside of the area of data compression, there are uncovered areas in terms of building full fledgling algorithms, linguistic and communications-wise for translating large radio frequencies and even transcribing possible alien communications.
Submissions to this Challenge must be received by 4 p.m. EET, Jan. 27, 2021.
