Attracted by the advantages offered by new technologies and services, people and organisations are
demonstrating a growing tendency to rely on digital technologies and services, whether in their everyday life or for business purposes. The emergence of those new digital technologies and services is also triggering new consumption patterns, which are greedier than ever for digital resources. In this context, the creation of data worldwide is increasing by the year at an unprecedented pace. Use of computational resources is also rising like never before. As a result, the increasing need for digital resources, especially for the development of AI models, goes hand-in-hand with a growing need for energy resources to support them.

This session will discuss how the energy footprint of AI development can be controlled and reduced. This question could be compared to the contribution of AI to reducing energy consumption.

What advantages could Japan, France and Germany derive from working together (i.e. scientists, companies, political decision-makers, etc.) on this topic? Why? How can we improve co-operation and what are the current brakes and deadlocks?
