New approach to make the cloud run sustainably

Just like the roads that provide access to them and the dikes that protect them, cloud datacentres have become an essential part of our national, and worldwide, infrastructure. Thanks to capacity planning research by TU Delft master’s student Georgios Andreadis, these datacentres may continue to meet the ever-growing computational demands while reducing their operational costs and increasing their efficiency and environmental sustainability.

Roel Dobbe in Geographical about the carbon footprint of AI and cloud computing

Artificial intelligence offers high potential solutions to the climate crisis, but evidence suggests that AI systems and cloud computing will need to clean up their own energy bills. Roel Dobbe, AI researcher, explains that in the AI field, there is a dominant but false belief that “bigger is better”, and that assumption drives the use of increased computation and bigger data sets in the development of AI models. As AI relies on more computational power, its carbon footprint increases.
