KEYNOTE #4
  • "AI+Energy: AI Techniques towards the Carbon Neutral Era"
  • Chong-Kwon Kim
  • KENTECH, Korea
Abstract

Unlike server virtualization that proliferated clouds, network virtualization has not drawn much attention yet. With advent of 5G, network virtualization needs to be seriously incorporated as a key technology. However, the state-of-the-art network virtualization lacks the dimension of programmability, which hinders its deployment into network systems. This talk presents how to accommodate the dimension and make it suitable for clouds in the context of SDN (software defined networking). The goal here is to bring the network virtualization to the level of server virtualization so that tenants can utilize the network resources in the granularity that they desire.

Biography

Environmental damages and climate abnormalities due to the CO2 emissions have been the center of concern for the last several years and many countries aim to achieve carbon neutrality by year 2050. Electrification has emerged as the sole solution that can accomplish the target. Electrification of energy requires an astronomical amount of investment on renewable energy sources such as photovoltaics, wind turbines, and etc. In addition, to provision the stable energy supply, various energy conversion and energy storage devices are required. The total energy system is too large and complex and it requires light speed monitoring and control mechanisms. Several prior studies have shown that various AI techniques enhance the efficiency of the energy systems. However, the optimal control problem for holistic energy systems is still remained as an untrodden research area. We will discuss the endeavors towards the carbon neutral era emphasizing the integration of AI and energy technologies.
