Standard for Measurement of Environmental Impacts of Artificial Intelligence Systems

This standard defines a measurement framework for reporting on environmental indicators for training models and deriving inference on Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems. This includes harmonized measurements of compute intensity (e.g. energy use) with associated environmental impacts (e.g. carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, or water consumption). This standard describes methodologies to separate the measurement of AI-specific compute (i.e. data centres used for AI training or inference) from general purpose compute (e.g. data centres used for other purposes like cloud services).

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.


No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.


No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.


No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.


No Inactive-Reserved Standards
