Microsoft forms nuclear energy team to support artificial intelligence: report ScrgruppEn

Tech giant Microsoft appears to be forming a new team to advance its plans in the field of artificial intelligence by hiring a specialist to develop an energy strategy based on small modular reactors (SMRs) and microreactor energy.

According to the job advertisement mentioned By The Verge Microsoft is looking for a principal program manager who will lead its nuclear technology efforts to support the development of AI models.

“The next major wave of computing has been born, as the Microsoft Cloud transforms the world’s most advanced AI models into a new computing platform,” said a quote from Microsoft Chairman and CEO Satya Nadella. available In the job description.

The ideal candidate should have at least six years of experience in the nuclear industry, engineering or energy market, the post reads, which is currently closed for applications. The position will also be responsible for exploring other experimental energy technologies.

Complex machine learning models, such as deep learning, can consume a large amount of energy for several reasons, including complex calculations and large amounts of data. study published In 2019, MIT Technology Review found that training a single AI model could emit as much carbon into the atmosphere as five cars in their lifetime.

Some ways to reduce energy consumption in AI models include developing more efficient algorithms and hardware, as well as using renewable energy sources for data centers, such as nuclear power.

According to According to the US Office of Nuclear Energy, one of the main advantages of nuclear energy is that it produces zero carbon emissions and emits no other greenhouse gases. But researchers at Stanford University Argues This energy source is not a solution to environmental problems, as there is a long lag between planning and operation, a large carbon footprint, and the risk of collapse.
