The internet goliath is now using its DeepMind artificial intelligence technology ― the same one that recently trounced one of the world’s best human players of the notoriously difficult game “Go” ―  to cut electricity bills at its energy-guzzling data centers. Using DeepMind algorithms, researchers found more efficient ways to distribute electricity throughout Google’s vast network of servers, which make up about 5 percent of the cloud, the digital backbone of the internet.
