Google Uses AI to Cut Energy Use and Save Millions
They say, "you can't think about everything." Well, an initiative at Google plans eventually to do just that. According to an article I found through the ASHRAE newsletter, using an Artificial Intelligence program called DeepMind it acquired in 2014 for $600 million dollars, Google has already reduced the amount of electricity used for cooling at one of its big data centers by 40%, resulting in an overall power saving of 15%. With the amount of power Google uses, this will translate into millions of dollars saved in just a few short years. Currently, DeepMind keeps track of 120 variables in the data center, but Google plans to expand the number of sensors significantly, and apply the powers of DeepMind in other areas of the company as well. It appears that soon there will be no limit to what we want to consider in solving the challenging problems we face each day.
