01:54 Sustainability is more than just a buzzword. Further, companies are joining forces to create renewable futures as well as harness and manage the resources that we have.
02:28 Researchers at the University of Hull met with AI experts at the International Conference on Learning Representations. The researchers presented their opinion paper on AI and renewable energy.
02:53 The paper outlines the factors limiting AI’s impact on renewable energy. More specifically, it focused on wind turbines and solar panels.
03:40 One issue is the frequent maintenance that these require, which is expensive. So, the researchers are trying to use AI to gather data around the input from the vibration sensors, temperature sensors, accelerometers, and speed sensors. Combining this data with historical data helps produce trained models that will help predict potential power outages.
04:12 The research team is looking toward natural language generation to convert the data output into readable text. This would support the overall trust in AI. However, these processes require a lot of complex computing infrastructure that uses a lot of energy.
05:10 How can major tech companies that have zero emissions as a primary goal help the researchers accomplish this? What will the outcome be from the partnership between large tech companies and sustainability cloud solutions?
