Golem is a worldwide, decentralized supercomputer that combines the computing power of each machine on its network. Such a machine would reduce the costs of research, analysis of large amounts of data or rendering - in a word, processes that would require enormous expenditure of energy, time and resources.
In the Golem ecosystem, you can lend your computer's spare resources to others who need extra power to perform complex calculations and tasks. Following the same trend that led to the rise of Uber and Airbnb, this sharing economy is a solid way to earn extra money with unused and / or unused resources.
On the other hand, you can borrow computing power from the network to perform or even speed up tasks that your computer is having trouble with. Computing power borrowing is an ideal idea if you routinely perform intensive computation such as Natural Language Processing (NLP), Artificial Intelligence (AI), or even Machine Learning for DNA mining. However, the Golem team focuses first on CGI rendering - an area prone to long latency.
