A new project shows how solar power can energize the internet

Researchers at NYU Tandon, including Tega Brain, affiliated with Connected Cities with Smart Transportation (C2SMART)Benedetta Piantella, member of the Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP), and Alex Nathanson, have developed Solar Protocol, a project that offers a solution to how to limit carbon emissions while using the Internet. “The project has catalyzed conversations about AI and automation, since in-network user traffic is decided by solar energy,” said Brain.
