[1910.09700] Quantifying the Carbon Emissions of Machine Learning

From an environmental standpoint, there are a few crucial aspects of training a neural network that have a major impact on the quantity of carbon that it emits. These factors include: the location of the server used for training and the energy grid that it uses, the length of the training procedure, and even the make and model of hardware on which the training takes place. In order to approximate these emissions, we present our Machine Learning Emissions Calculator, a tool for our community to better understand the environmental impact of training ML models. We accompany this tool with an explanation of the factors cited above, as well as concrete actions that individual practitioners and organizations can take to mitigate their carbon emissions.

@sleepinyourhat Just ran into this nice overview from @alex_lacoste_ et al. on how to calculate and reduce the carbon emissions associated with ML model training: t.co/4DWWH0aowR t.co/kfiUmqYknz
@AntoineAugusti Very interesting work for @ClimateChangeAI @ NeurIPS: Quantifying the Carbon Emissions of Machine Learning. They also provide a simulator to know the carbon emission of the hardware you use t.co/Ec2ERKwFci #ecology #MachineLearning🗒Paper t.co/jYoquHHz3K t.co/mN2Cxp9hTd
@alex_lacoste_ @mikarv @mikarv, here is a preprint for the @ClimateChangeAI NeurIPS workshop: t.co/hA1H2nRHrK. Also, see our ML CO2 calculator: t.co/OpVy0Kd3pE. (@SashaMTL, @vict0rsch)
