Ottawa, Aug 3 (Canadian-Media): About tenth of the world’s electricity usage by Data centers that handle Artificial Intelligence(AI) computing could account for an international climate threat by 2025, MIT Technology review reports said.
According to the chief executive of Applied Materials, a big supplier to the semiconductor industry, the climate threat could be lessened by innovation hardware and software could help keep AI’s demands for more electrical power in check.
Google already uses algorithms developed by DeepMind, which cut its cooling bill by 40%. Pioneering companies like Facebook and Amazon are more energy-efficient than servers in conventional centers that have to juggle a wider range of functions.
