Jonathan Lewis Summers is a new Adjunct Professor of Fluid Mechanics at Luleå University of Technology. In his lecture he takes us on a journey through the digital infrastructure landscape.

Behind the apps and data that drive 21st century society is a complex supporting infrastructure of data centres, servers, networks, mobile data towers and clouds. As the demand for digitalisation increases, so does the need to balance the consumed energy with greater efficiency of the infrastructure. However, reliant on this infrastructure, dematerialisation and smart everything are anticipated to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We will explore this balance by taking a journey through the digital infrastructure landscape.
