Google: AI Cuts Datacenter Cooling Costs

google-sign-energy-manageArtificial intelligence (AI) may be a transformative tool in improving the energy efficiency of datacenters, according to The Verge.

The site says that Google has run an experiment in which its DeepMind AI technology reduced energy use by 40 percent. The cooling savings equated to a 15 percent reduction in overall power use. The Verge points out that the company used more than 4.4 million MWh of electricity in 2014. Thus, the savings would be hundreds of millions of dollars if the efficiencies can be extended over the entire portfolio.

DeepMind AI technology controlled approximately 120 variables in the experiment, the story said.

This week, Schneider Electric announced the extension of its datacenter cooling line with the introduction of the InRow DX.
