In this video interview Rob Tiffany, head of non-profit Moab Foundation, talks to Matt Hatton about creating free technology to connect devices and capture data in digital twins in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The pair talk about delivering a low-energy platform, design for sustainability and simplicity, and machine learning among other topics.
Sponsored by InterDigital, Transforma Insights' new report shows the impact that emerging technologies will have on sustainability within the telecoms sector and other sectors. The cost-benefits are complex and vary significantly, but overall digitalisation should support a much smaller ecological footprint.
In total, new technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things will save approaching 1.8 PWh of electricity in 2030, and an additional 3.5 PWh of (hydrocarbon) fuel use, resulting in total savings of 5.3 PWh of energy. Offset against this benefit is 653TWh of electricity consumption required to power solutions deployed using new technologies.
For comparison, the total electricity consumption of the global ICT industry is forecast to increase to around 8 PWh by 2030, meaning that together new technologies will generate energy savings equal to around 58% of the total power consumption of the ICT industry.

Hard on the heels of an ABI Research report for 6GWorld, this on-demand webinar brings perspectives from ENISA, Trend Micro and ABI to explore where cybersecurity trends are leading us and how we can seize fresh opportunities.
The physical world of 2030 and beyond will be more networked, digitised and automated than ever before, depending on connectivity and AI to function. How do we make sure that bad actors cannot exploit this to endanger lives and economies?
Commissioned by 6GWorld, this ABI Research report maps out the interplay between security challenges and the evolution beyond 5G networks, including recommendations for action today and further reading.
Artificial intelligence (AI) has many use cases, including cybersecurity. However, securing AI systems themselves has to be a priority.
Two out of three organisations plan to deploy AI for cybersecurity this year according to Capgemini. There are undeniable concerns, though.
6G is on the minds of many in the tech community, even in the early phases of 5G deployment. There’s a reason behind that.
While the development of machine learning and predictive models is progressing, what has been accomplished with AI so far is still considered the tip of the iceberg
"The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the digital transition and revealed the challenges that still exist when it comes to connecting households and people, as well as the digital skills required to participate effectively in the online world. As a result of the pandemic, the need for a digitally competent population and the demand for a digitally skilled workforce has grown even more pronounced."
