Reducing the data, energy and emissions of big data computing - The Science Show

It has been estimated the energy used and the emissions generated in storing all the data we’ve generated rivals the emission of the airline industry. And it is growing fast. Jayne Thompson in Singapore is working on new machines which will allow the same computations to be made which draw on less data from data centres. Jayne says despite the massive engineering feat required to make quantum computing work, success is in sight and may not be that far away.
