Electronics < > Ecologies: Energy Workshop - Calculating the energy footprint of ADM+S projects
The third event in the Electronics < > Ecologies series for ADM+S, ENERGY foregrounds the work of engineers and activists influencing the trajectory of resource use in today’s tech industry.
The IT sector currently accounts for somewhere between 1-4% of global greenhouse gas emissions, with some scholars suggesting this will rise to at least 14% by 2040. These estimates predate the release of popular AI applications such as ChatGPT, and reflect generations of engineering training and business incentives that measured success in terms of size, accuracy and latency.
Informed by the morning's talks and roundtable, an afternoon workshop will allow ADM+S members (including students and ECRs) to debate, refine and apply relevant insights to existing projects, with a view to further collaborations.
Applications for this in-person workshop must send an Expression of Interest with a paragraph describing relevant work or research in progress by November 15. Successful applicant will be notified via email.
