The federal ministry of environment has published a funf point program with which it focuses on environmentally friendly and non-wealth-oriented artificial intelligence (ki). Within the framework of the federal government’s billion-german ki strategy, the department is available for the amount of 150 million euros to 2025 150 million euros.
Pro and contra from the point of view of the federal environment minister
"With ki we can, simply said, analyze rough amounts of data and thus recognize patterns, trends and errors and predictions", explained federal environment minister svenja schulze. This uses the environment on a very concrete way about "when switching our energy supply to solar and wind power". Environmental disasters could be better predicted with ki.
In parallel, the spd politician wants "also ocological dark sides of the ki in the view" to take. Not only the billions of calculations on high-performance processors who awarded ki systems their skills, "devour a lot of energy". This also applies "for transport and storage of the huge amounts of data".
Ki for environmental and climate protection
"Through ki-based analyzes of the water quality we can predict, on which digits the nitrate load will be increased", bring the author of the program an example of the applicability of ai for environmental and climate protection. The technology also allows about "the detection of beads and bats and at the same time the regulation of wind turbines to avoid together". In addition, ki-based image recognition in agriculture help to better differentiate in breeding and not as "weed" to get rich flat.
Machine learning co. Could further accelerate the energy transition through a better integration of renewable energies and an intelligent network control, the ministry writes. In smart grids, it is so feasible to bring supply and demand better or to create optimized load forecasts with weather and consumption data. Thanks to algorithms, traffic trows love themselves more efficient and climate-friendly steering, which optimize utilization in good deals, avoid empty rides and support the relocation of hands on the rail.
Sustainable ki made in europe
It should also be noted "more research, especially the energetic optimization potential and the actual ecological compression printing of ki applications over their entire service life", it’s in the paper. Transparency over energy and resource breakers can be made "a new consciousness". Therefore, it is important to develop the basis for an energy efficiency labeling of ki systems. With a strong brand "sustainable ai made in europe" the eu has the opportunity to advance a key technology to its advantage, "which is obliged to the common good, human rights and an open society" as "the transformation to the climate neutral requires".
With the program, the resort also wants to help small and medium-sized enterprises, using ki material, energy and water to use more efficiently as well as less greenhouse gases. The "predictive maintenance of machines (predictive maintenance)" allow a process and product optimization as well as improved logistics planning. Furthermore, the social technology design should be about the network "civic coding" starded and access to publicly relevant environmental data are facilitated.
