Green Bytes – how green can technology be?

Raffaele Grosjean explains to Mario Angst how to use the VR glasses for the project: Batvision. Experience the world as a bat.

On June 7, 2023, our “Green Bytes” event took place at the ZKSD, focusing on the topics of sustainability and digitalization. We would like to thank all participants for the inspiring exchange and their commitment!

Some highlights:

Thorsten Busch from the Zurich University of Applied Sciences (ZHAW) presented the interdisciplinary project “AIMS”. This project originated from the ZHAW Digital Community and focuses on collecting data on the power consumption of graphics processors. The goal is to analyze how the use of artificial intelligence (AI) can be made more sustainable and efficient.

Mario Angst from the University of Zurich (UZH) and Julia Krasselt from ZHAW discovered common research fields and opportunities for cross-university collaboration in the field of sustainability discourse.

The event offered visitors many exciting experiences. Using virtual reality goggles, they were able to experience the retreat of the Aletsch glacier first hand, slip into the body of a bat or spider, and see with their own eyes the impact of thinning forests. These experiences were made possible by the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK).

Thanks again to all who contributed to this successful event. We look forward to future events and further collaboration in the field of sustainability and digitalization!
