Is Machine Learning Sustainable?

  • Seminar

Training a single NLP model can emit as much carbon as five cars in their lifetime. Is there such a thing as green Machine Learning? With accuracy hungry algorithms ML software is consuming more and more computational resources, largely benefiting from the increasingly better hardware. Are the results worth the environmental cost? This talk will cover some of the latest research in the area, showing options to estimate the carbon footprint and discuss ideas on how to make Machine Learning greener.
