Am i correct in thinking that one of the first projects deep mind did in mluntain view helped optimise google's energy consumption - perhaps saving up to third of energy needed for supercomputing. If so is this an AI service now sold externally?

Yes, you are correct. One of the first projects DeepMind did at Mountain View helped optimize Google's energy consumption, saving up to a third of the energy needed for supercomputing. This project, known as DeepMind Control Network (DCN), was developed in 2016 and used a combination of machine learning and reinforcement learning to optimize the cooling systems in Google's data centers. DCN was able to achieve significant energy savings by learning to anticipate changes in server load and adjusting the cooling accordingly.

DCN was a groundbreaking project that demonstrated the potential of AI to improve energy efficiency. It was also one of the first projects to show that AI could be used to optimize complex real-world systems.

Google has not yet commercialized DCN as a standalone AI service, but the technology has been incorporated into Google's data center operations. Google has also made the DCN software available open source, so that other organizations can use it to optimize their own data centers.

The use of AI to optimize energy consumption is a growing area of research. AI has the potential to be used to optimize energy consumption in a wide range of applications, including buildings, transportation, and manufacturing. As AI technology continues to develop, we can expect to see more and more applications of AI to energy optimization.

Hopes for a sustainable planet must not ‘melt away’: Guterres

World leaders at this week’s climate conference, COP28, must break the deadly cycle of global warming before a “deadly tipping point” is reached, said the UN chief on Monday.

UN Secretary-General Ant贸nio Guterres was briefing reporters in New York after seeing for himself over the weekend the “profoundly shocking” speed at which ice is melting in Antarctica – three times faster than the rate in the early 1990s.

New figures reveal that sea ice at the South Pole is now 1.5 million square kilometres below average for this time of year; that’s equal to the combined surface area of Portugal, Spain, France and Germany combined.

Nowhere to hide

“What happens in Antarctica doesn’t stay in Antarctica”, Mr. Guterres said. “We live in an interconnected world. Melting sea ice means rising seas. And that directly endangers lives and livelihoods in coastal communities across the globe.

He noted that it’s not just the impact of floods and saltwater on food and water supplies at stake, but the viability of small islands and entire cities on coasts across the world.

“The movement of waters around Antarctica distributes heat, nutrients and carbon around the world, helping to regulate our climate and regional weather patterns”, he told correspondents outside the Security Council.

“But that system is slowing as the southern Ocean grows warmer and less dense. Further slowdown – or entire breakdown – would spell catastrophe.”

‘Calamitous’ rise

With no let-up in fossil fuel extraction “we’re heading towards a calamitous three-degree Celsius temperature rise by the end of the century”, he warned.

:If we continue as we are, and I strongly hope we will not, the Greenland and West Antarctica ice sheets will cross a deadly tipping point.”

This represents an astonishing rise of around 10 metres.  

The vicious cycle means accelerated heating as ice diminishes and more extreme weather.

At COP28 in Dubai, which starts later this week, “leaders must break this cycle”, the UN chief declared.

The solutions are there

“The solutions are well known. Leaders must act to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celsius, protect people from climate chaos, and end the fossil fuel age.”

Only a global pact to triple renewable energy use, a doubling in energy efficiency and access to clean power for all by 2030, will be sufficient, he argued.   

“Antarctica is crying out for action”, the Secretary-General added. “I salute the thousands of researchers – in Antarctica and around the world – expanding our understanding of the changes taking place on the continent.

“They are testament to human ingenuity and the immense benefits of international collaboration. Leaders must not let the hopes of people around the world for a sustainable planet melt away.”

outside box solutions to cop crisis

 1 there's a rumor from my fav chat bard that the people who used ai to catalogue covid solutions when thousands of papers were being written simultaneously may bring out climate solutions llm in time for cop - lets see

at brookings yesterday wonderful transparency on what is needed cine from those asians joining cop week in california  https://www.brookings.edu/events/apec-summit-2023-the-future-of-climate-and-trade-policies-in-a-world-of-geopolitical-divides/

i wanted to include this article - i believe striongly we need to get ai in middle of seeing all our grids but how?

when mushroom ai lifts off you know green ai must be ready to roll

hi may i intro you three energising womens ai connectors souls in case there are win-wins- virtually, i have known Rebecca for quite a ,lng time ; we were early centurions on lunch clubs 1:1 netwirks during covid - she has a retreat boutique conferebce space about hours drive south of boston which she connects women's emotional intelligence but more recently mushroom ai has proved a viral hit to extend the movement https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74xUVfqdymw meanwhhile randi and kate are both in new York area. Randi is a lawyer of trade etc who did 15 years in china before returning to new York. Inter alia she is helping various plant  protein networks market around the world; more recently our arts crew out of soundtracknewyork have met kate- - she was arguably demings favorite female team leader (also wrote a systems book with a former head of IBM)  and is now up for any way of changing education. 
When I am clueless about something I ask bard - it seemed to add weight to mushroom AI as a potentially huge growing movement  Here's bard: .,...One example of a mushroom green intelligence movement is the MycoMundial project. MycoMundial is a global network of mushroom growers, researchers, and enthusiasts who are working to promote the use of mushrooms for sustainable development. The project has a number of initiatives, including a mushroom cultivation training program and a mushroom research fund.https://www.planetaid.org/blog/what-is-the-zero-waste-movement

The Plant-Based Diet Movement: This movement is promoting the benefits of eating a plant-based diet for human health and for the environment. Plant-based diets are typically lower in saturated fat and cholesterol, and they can help to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, and cancer. Plant-based diets also require less land and water to produce than animal-based diets, which can help to reduce environmental impact.

The Rewilding Movement: This movement is working to restore natural ecosystems that have been degraded by human activity. Rewilding projects often involve the reintroduction of native species, the removal of invasive species, and the restoration of natural processes such as fire and grazing.

t  one of new yorks best friends of celebrating worldwide human intel as well as maths and music in hosting arts salons has been finishing off soundtracks for 45 years including those of john mackey (who has reportedly ended being ceo for whole foods amazon) and marketing a plant food/start up but as brither john is going in for an operation next week i thought it would be best if we tested if there is any cooperation momentum before seeing if he can help amp up chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk
looking ahead september is the month when the wordkl coses to new york to sort out uniting nations - the fringe events are huge this year now covid is no longer closing humanity dow; i hope to come back withy a log of gren ai and womens ai *** events son - please tell me if you have any- about 70% have virtual as well as real ways to cooperate
