Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) demand in Industry and Sustainable Computing

Abstract: Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) have become more important criteria than before for many corporate companies due to climate changes and other social responsibilities. The ESG criteria reflect how the company aspires to create a more sustainable, equitable, and ethical future [1]. The dramatic increase in the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and high demand for Cloud computing/streaming/gaming require more and more energy/carbon usage over time, but the Dennard Scaling cannot keep up with the power/energy savings. The speaker will discuss possible solutions and discuss ongoing projects, and hiring (internship) opportunities in IBM Research. [1] https://newsroom.ibm.com/2022-04-12-IBM-Unveils-its-New-Reporting-Framework-and-Report-for-Environmental,-Social,-and-Governance-ESG

The School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science was created in the spring of 2015 to allow greater access to courses offered by both departments for undergraduate and graduate students in exciting collaborative research fields.

We offer B.S. degrees in electrical engineering, computer science, computer engineering and data science and graduate degrees (master's degrees and Ph.D.'s) in electrical engineering and computer science and engineering. EECS focuses on the convergence of technologies and disciplines to meet today’s industrial demands.
