Data Center With a Brain: Google Using Machine Learning In Server Farms 26

1sockchuck (826398) writes "Google has begun using machine learning and artificial intelligence to analyze the oceans of data it collects about its server farms and recommend ways to improve them. Google data center executive Joe Kava said the use of neural networks will allow Google to reach new frontiers in efficiency in its server farms, moving beyond what its engineers can see and analyze. Google's data centers aren't yet ready to drive themselves. But the new tools have been able to predict Google's data center performance with 99.96 percent accuracy."

    The article seems top heavy ... meaning the article has all the emphasis on "machine learning in server farms" and way too little on what it actually produces. Some fuzzy paragraph on cooling methods when some servers are taken offline.

    You could use "machine learning for peace in the middle east", or use "machine learning for fixing the economy" but unless it produces real results, it's just an experiment.

Committees have become so important nowadays that subcommittees have to be appointed to do the work.
