Prashant Shenoy on the path to “true zero” carbon and how to get there.

In this edition of Juniper’s Distinguished Speaker Series, we welcome Prashant Shenoy of the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Prashant’s talk focuses on the issues of sustainability and climate change, specifically related to zero-carbon computing. The exponential growth of computing infrastructure requires aggressive energy optimization moving forward, Prashant says. The road to true zero carbon is going to be hard, he admits, but there are ways the computing industry can get there. Learn more in this highly informative presentation.
