Dubai: Si launches $15,000 VoIP Application Design Competition!
Si has launched an exciting technical competition with a $15,000 award!
If practical quantum computers become a reality, the security of your private communications is at risk. With that in mind, we are launching a competition to design a client application offering secure voice communications using a post-quantum cryptographic algorithm.
The aim of this competition is to design a VoIP application that is secure against a quantum computer. Through this competition, we intend to develop new and pioneering business opportunities and partnerships in this area. The competition is open to individuals, as well as to groups or businesses of any size.
