Driving Sustainability in the Era of AI
Wednesday, June 5, 2024 | 2:00PM – 2:45PM
World of Solutions – Center Stage
Session CENDCN-1020

Abstract: As the world embraces AI, it faces significant transformations and opportunities. However, with AI estimated to consume as much electricity as the country of Ireland on an annual basis, we must address the environmental consequences of this transformation. Most data centers today are not prepared for the increasing power, compute, and networking demands necessary to support AI workloads.

This panel convenes Cisco sustainability leaders and data center industry leaders to discuss strategies businesses can adopt to help mitigate the environmental impacts of AI by reducing resource and energy use, starting in the data center. Hear how Cisco and its partners are helping to build AI-ready, energy-efficient data centers that could become the foundation of a more sustainable, digital, future.
