Intelligent Sustainability

Presented with AMD

Data centers and technology, in general, have always been seen as, well, energy hogs. Don’t expect that perception to change as power demands will only increase with computational-intensive AI models, power- and bandwidth-hungry Web3 and metaverse-like applications and the cloud — which MIT reports has a greater carbon footprint than the airline industry.

Customers, stakeholders and governments now demand accountability on climate impact, so there’s no shortage of compelling incentives to embrace sustainability.

Tech leaders must work toward energy efficiency to meet regulatory compliance, lower costs, attract and retain customers, and simply do the right thing. There’s no easy path to intelligent sustainability, but in this special report, VentureBeat looks at tools and practices you can use to make it achievable.
