Idea for a Rust promotion challenge


Hi all

Another insomnia case here…

Maybe the community could ask it’s sponsors to conduct a challenge, some sort of X-Prize: have teams (might be, students only) develop pure Rusty implementations in some yet exotic, but potentially very beneficial domain, like:

  • DSP
  • speech-to-text/text-to-speech
  • machine learning
  • WebRTC / SIP / RTP implementations
  • CUDA
  • etc.

Rust code in such areas should be a great fit for resource-constrained (Raspberry Pi) or WebAssembly environments. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to have, for example, voice altering function right in your messenger? All the solutions presented must be provided under some FOSS-license.

Sharing this just to see if it has any traction. And hopefully now I can have sleep )))
