About the Talk
Automation and computing will play a major role in making our planet greener. Computing itself amounts for about two percent of the total energy we consume today, and this share is increasing as more and more people become wired globally. Moreover, many man-made machines, such as computers, waste lots of energy when they’re not in use. This talk will explore the future of computers, with respect to energy use. Will computers become more efficient, and how will they help other machines waste less energy while doing nothing
