Artists and Designers: Leading the Way in Sustainable Artificial Intelligence DR. STACEY DENISE MOORE LEARN ABOUT THE AUTHOR   Contact […]

In the first instalment of this two-part blog series, we explored the growing environmental impact of Sustainable Artificial Intelligence technologies, specifically the substantial water usage associated with training sophisticated AI models. We framed this issue against the backdrop of the global water crisis, using California’s drought challenges as a case study. Now in the second part of this series, we delve deeper into creative solutions and sustainable practices to balance AI innovation with ecological stewardship.

“Each choice we make, each tool we use, each innovation we adopt, carries with it an environmental footprint.”
