Google’s DeepMind AI Reduces Data Center Cooling Bill By 40%

July 22nd, 2016 by Joshua S Hill  Google’s 2014 acquisition of artificial intelligence company DeepMind has paid dividends, by helping to save the company 40% on its data center cooling electricity bills. Google acquired the London-based artificial intelligence company in early 2014 for more than $500 million. Since then, DeepMind’s machine learning has been used for only a few research and intelligence projects. However, in recent months, Google put DeepMind in charge of aspects of Google’s data centers to “significantly improve the system’s utility.” Google had already been using machine learning to operate its data centers more efficiently, but only recently has DeepMind been charged with creating “a more efficient and adaptive framework to understand data center dynamics and optimize efficiency.” As a result, DeepMind has managed to optimize Google’s…
