Artificially intelligent computer software that can learn, adapt and rebuild itself in real-time could help combat climate change.

Researchers at Lancaster University’s Data Science Institute have developed a software system that can for the first time rapidly self-assemble into the most efficient form without needing humans to tell it what to do.

The system — called REx — is being developed with vast energy-hungry data centres in mind. By being able to rapidly adjust to optimally deal with a huge multitude of tasks, servers controlled by REx would need to do less processing, therefore consuming less energy. (1)

We build computers which consume a lot, in order to self-learn how to… consume little. We are so clever in building things, that we end up really stupid in… building things. Balance comes through non-action. And we have learned so intensely about doing things that we constantly forget that you do most things when you do nothing at all…

Sometimes the best solution is to do nothing in the first place. Because the more you do, the more effort you will need at the end in order to do nothing…

Look at that computer.

Pull off the plug.

There you go.

Difficult? Yes. More demanding? Yes. Need to do more in order to pull that plug off? Yes. There you go then! 🙂 Do it!
