Indo-British scholar’s AI tech project boosts smartphone battery, saves energy
A novel Artificial Intelligence-based technology invented by an Indian-origin professor at University of Essex in the United Kingdom, can help boost smartphone battery by 30 % and save countless kilowatts from energy bills.
An alumnus of Indian Institute of Technology, Dhanbad, Dr Amit Singh, led the technology and turned it into an EOptomizer, an app to drive down carbon emissions by making consumers’ electronic devices last longer.
EOptomizer app does this by using software to increase reliability and competence in tabs, smartphones, smart fridges and computer batteries – delaying when buyers need to buy carbon-footprint-producing replacements.
Amit Singh in a statement said, “Considering that there will be approximately 50 billion devices by 2025 and many more thereafter, EOptomiser has great potential to help to achieve the net zero emissions goal of the whole world. It is our hope that this app will help make everyone’s life better, save them money and help save the environment”.
EOptomizer deploys AI to know how a certain app is being used and optimizes the energy usage for the app. This will need higher FPS (frames per second) than when they spend more time on the app in the evening, slowly scrolling down and reading more stories in full.
Singh also added, “We hope to see our app in the hands of consumers across the globe”. The AI tech enquires how an app is being used the whole day and optimizes energy use.
