Tourism Database, Energy & AI, Data Centers, Contextual Data, Metaverse Future, Geospatial & Climate

This week, we begin with a campaign launched to merge the databases of tourism-related agencies, businesses, and organizations to support the recovery and growth of the industry. Next is a Forbes interview with Pamela Isom, the new Director of the AITO, discussing the uses & problems associated with leveraging AI technology. Then, we have a story about Ireland’s climate targets slipping out of reach because of the high demand for electricity by its data centers and how big techs are asked to make up for its impact. Following that, we have an essay claiming that we need more contextual data that can be achieved through data enrichment. Next is an article that talks about the ways of adoption of edge computing to help organizations better equip their data centers for meeting the demand from metaverse technology. Lastly, we have a piece on the valuable insights provided by the geospatial data in adapting and mitigating climate change by helping to efficiently identify locations for renewable energy investment.
