The emergence of digital technologies (e.g. Blockchain) and paradigms (e.g. AI, Cloud, IoT, Big Data, Smart Cities, etc.) has contributed to the modernisation of our economy, from transport to health care sectors. Data centres are the unsung heroes of these technologies but enormous challenges (such as energy consumption) loom. This talk will highlight the impact of such technologies on the overall energy consumption of ICT (in particular data centres) worldwide and will discuss some of the opportunities.
