Google uses DeepMind AI to cut data center energy bills

Tweet Share The amount of energy consumed by big data centers has always been a headache for tech companies. Keeping the servers cool as they crunch numbers is such a challenge that Facebook even built one of its facilities on the edge of the Arctic Circle. Well, Google has a different solution to this problem: putting its DeepMind artificial intelligence unit in charge and using AI to manage power usage in parts of its data centers. The results of this experiment? A 40 percent reduction in the amount of electricity needed for cooling, which Google describes as a “phenomenal step forward.” After accounting for “electrical losses and other non-cooling inefficiencies,” this 40 percent reduction translated into a 15 percent reduction in overall power saving, says Google. Considering that the company used some…
