Baidu and IDC jointly launched the first domestic white paper focusing on AI to help achieve the “dual carbon” goal

Shanghai Securities News China Securities Network News (Reporter Wen Ting) Technological innovation plays an important role in the implementation of carbon peaks and carbon neutrality. The latest release of the “2021 China Artificial Intelligence Achievement of the “Double Carbon” Goal White Paper” (hereinafter referred to as The “White Paper”) shows that the contribution of artificial intelligence-related technologies to carbon reduction will increase year by year, reaching at least 70% by 2060, and the total carbon reduction will exceed 35 billion tons.

The white paper is the first domestic industry research report focusing on AI to help achieve the “dual carbon” goal. It was jointly launched by Baidu and the world-renowned technology consulting organization IDC (International Data Corporation).

The just-concluded Central Economic Work Conference put forward clear requirements for “we must pay close attention to the tackling of green and low-carbon technologies”. The white paper research shows that the path to carbon neutrality must be a process of technology-intensive use. The technological breakthroughs in artificial intelligence will be applied to various industries through the use of information and communication technology infrastructure, and combined with various industries’ carbon reduction technologies and applications. , To achieve great potential.

Taking the transportation industry as an example, the carbon emissions of China’s transportation industry in 2020 are estimated to be 1.04 billion tons, accounting for 9% of the country’s total emissions. In the process of driving the transportation industry to reduce carbon emissions and emissions, the use of intelligent traffic control based on intelligent traffic control technology can effectively improve the efficiency of the city’s main road intersections, and cities with tens of millions of people can reduce carbon emissions at least every year. 41,600 tons, which is equivalent to the carbon emissions of 14,000 private cars driving for a year.

The white paper is also based on IDC’s long-term tracking and accumulation of global IT market data, and the original data center carbon emission model is used to calculate. The total amount of carbon emissions reduced by cloud computing in the world in 2020 alone is equivalent to a reduction of nearly 26 million vehicles. Cars on the road, or reduced the mileage of 390 billion kilometers, which is more than 15 times the total carbon impact of all Tesla electric vehicles.

The white paper further analyzes and believes that as various industries increasingly rely on digitalization to help increase value, business scenarios have increasing demand for computing power; in the consumer field, the intelligentization of personal devices is based on cloud-enhanced functional experience, and users are more sensitive to data center computing power services. Demands continue to increase. Therefore, the increase in computing power of data centers that serve economic growth will undoubtedly consume more energy.
