How sustainable are AI policies? Evaluating the environmental impact of different national AI strategies.

There is a broader consensus among major stakeholders that AI based systems aid in fighting climate change, reduce carbon emissions, optimise energy production and resource utilisation. However, while AI may impact environmental outcomes positively, it can also affect environmental sustainability adversely. It could aid in increasing carbon emissions further as it requires more energy to train Machine Learning, Deep Learning models and neural networks. It is within this background that this project puts the question of the Sustainability of AI at its core and proposes to analyse how AI national strategies, policies and regulations in five major AI technology developing and adopting countries (USA, UK, Germany, China and India) deal with the question of AI sustainability in their policy formulation and implementation.
