Deep Learning has gone from a dead end to the ultimate solution to all machine learning problems – and some others. But how good is this trend really? And how sustainable? In their talk, Nadja Geisler and Benjamin Hättasch are looking at scientific sustainability, social impacts, and the consequences for our resources, our energy consumption, and thus, our planet.
Afterwards, they gave an interview to Deutschlandfunk. Zeit Online wrote about the influences of computer science and technology on climate and Spiegel Online listed the talk as part of their video recommendations from the 36C3.
