Google trains artificial intelligence to slash data centre energy by 40%

Tech giant Google has taken a “phenomenal step forward” in its efforts to drive energy efficiency, after developing artificial intelligence (AI) that has reduced energy consumption at its data centres by 40%. Google has been able to achieve 3.5 times more computing power from the same amount of energy compared to five years ago Google’s data centres, although powered by renewables, still consume vast amounts of energy during cooling processes. Over the past 10 years, Google has developed the AI system using the ‘DeepMind’ research company to live test a system of neural networks – computer systems modelled on the human brain – that have led to a more efficient and adaptive framework for data centre management. DeepMind has managed to train these neural networks to predict the temperature and pressure outputs within…
