Google Uses AI to Control Cooling in Data Centers

(July 20, 2016) Google has been using its newly acquired AI technology from DeepMind to reduce the amount of energy its data centers have been consuming.

“The AI technology is applied to the management of the servers and other electronics at the company’s proprietary data centres and is used specifically to fine-tune the cooling systems,” explained DeepMind co-founder Demis Hassabis said, “It controls about 120 variables in the data centres. The fans and the cooling systems and so on […].”

According to The Inquirer, “The software uses an adapted form of the machine learning software developed by DeepMind to play Atari 2600 video games. Deployed in the data centre, the software learns how the servers work and manipulates fans and other elements to reduce their use when not needed.”

DeepMind’s technology was “deployed in Google data centres only in recent months, but has already resulted in a 15 per cent improvement in power use efficiency,” reported The Inquirer.
